A Reverend Gets a Second Chance to see the NFC Championship Game

Form information taken out of an article in the Racine Journal Times today:

The Rev. Walter Hermanns couldn’t be happier that the Dallas Cowboys lost to the NY giants in the divisional round of playoffs last weekend. The Reverend was one of the lucky ones to receive tickets in a lottery held for fans who have purchased handicapped accessible seats in the past. There’s only one problem. With the Packers gaining only one of two home playoff games courtesy of their loss to the Cowboys, the NFC Championship tickets were no longer needed, or so thought Rev. Hermanns’ wife who put the tickets in a bin of other papers to be shredded.

A friend of the Hermanns who assists with various tasks was directed to shred the stack of papers, a task often requested, and proceeded to do just that. As he got to the tickets, he unbundled them and sent the first of four through the shredder before thinking better of it, asking Rev Hermanns if he was sure he should proceed. Having realized the error, they retrieved the shredded ticket, placed it in a plastic bag and called the Packers ticket office.

He informed them of the situation and thanks to the fact he had purchased the tickets via credit card and maintained possession of the remaining three tickets, all is well. An early trip to the ticket office on Sunday will remedy the situation and all four seat will be occupied for the big game. As for Mrs. Hermanns, she’ll be watching the game…from the comfort of her home in Racine. A decision the Reverend says she made on her own.
