22570 people are in front of me for Packers season tickets

Green Bay Packers season tickets have been sold out since 1960.  In 1997 I signed up on the waiting list for Packers season tickets.  At that time, which was prior to the Lambeau Field renovation, the estimate was that I would be 51 by the time season tickets were available.  Given that there are more seats and the season ticket transfer rules have tightened up a bit, it might be more like 45 now (I can’t find the wait calculator anymore).


While I’m not planning on moving back to Wisconsin anytime soon, by the time I’m that age, you never know.  If the packers were having a good season, I would even consider flying back for some games!

Local Jazz jam sessions

Aside from the (now very irregular) jazz jam sessions at Dick’s place, I’m hoping to check out some other venues in the area.  There was an article in the SF Chronicle a while back and here’s the list of places:



  • Sunday night: Jazz at Pearl’s

  • Sunday afternoon: Dogpatch Saloon

  • Monday night: Shanghai 1930

  • Wednesday night: Amnesia

Being a drummer, it’s tough to sit in at jam sessions but nonetheless, I’m a big fan of live improvisation and jam sessions are where you often get the best of that.
