Doubleheader Day in Minneapolis

31 October 2008 No Comment

Tonight I am flying up to Minneapolis for a doubleheader day tomorrow. In the first game of the day, the Minnesota Golden Gophers host the Northwestern Wildcats at 11 am. Second, I am attending the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves game. Tip off is at 7 pm.

When I booked the ticket in August (and ever since) airfares from Chicago to Minneapolis have hovered between $400 and $450. Since that is an unreasonable amount of money to pay for a day trip to Minneapolis, I chose to book my ticket using the 25,000 miles I had on Northwest Airlines. I have had these miles for a few years and have never been able to use them because Northwest does not fly anywhere from Chicago except for Detroit and Minny. Thus, I can now say good riddance to NWA.
