Recently, being a philosopher at heart, I got to thinking as I viewed my fan photos. I wondered if money were no object, if I could sit whereever I wished, where would I sit? Ordinarily tickets to games include an assigned seat. I attended a UT game a few years ago. My assigned seat was way high up there. At first I was disappointed. Then I realized the perspective gave me a view of the entire field. I saw a UT receiver catch a pass about ten yards beyond the line of scrimmage and I knew it would go for a touchdown because I could see the entire field and no defender was anywhere close to the receiver.
If I weren't assigned a seat, where would I sit?
When I go to Outlaws games to shoot pictures, I stay on the sidelines. The goal is to get close up shots of the action. But that perspective isn't very good for viewing the game. To paraphrase an old saying, I can't see the game for the players.
If I were attending the game just as a spectator, where would I sit?
Someplace in the middle of the bleachers? I'm big and I love having space. The fan in the photo below isn't big but she has lots of space. I'd like that.

|How about the very top row? The problem is you have to climb|
all those stairs to get there.
Or would I get as close to the field as possible, sitting right on the front edge of the bleachers?

her since she was very little. But my memory for names
just doesn't work very well.
