First, let me say - the parts of the stadium you don't usually get to see during a game are gorgeous! I was skeptical when I heard that we'd have approximately 500 people at the stadium for the conference, but I couldn't have been more wrong. The marketing, sales, security and catering staff are pretty darn awesome!
Great views of the field (and the occasional football and soccer player)
Now, let me tell you a little of the back story... We were supposed to load up my car at 6 AM and be at Gillette by 7 or so. Around 5:30 AM, we realized that no one had keys to the office. Don't look at me like that! I'm not the one that had lost their keys days before cough *Eric* cough. After lots of calling around (and an attempt to wake up my cousin/co-worker Kristin at 5:50 AM), we finally got in and were only marginally late.
Max and I having a little fun. :-)
Stephen, Max and Eric (l-r) By the end of the day, our team was exhausted to the point of "jazz hands" or almost tears. The boys are a liiiitle hyper, so I might have chosen tears too. *giggle* (Note: Max wasn't actually crying, just making faces.)
Before our next conference (a two day affair), I'm demanding a raise. Or more coffee... Yeah, probably just the coffee.
