Navigating a stadium is never an easy endeavor. Crowds head towards the gates, moving slower than sludge and it seems like getting in and out of the venue takes as long as the entire show. Perhaps anticipating the concert bliss to come of an incredible show helps brighten the dull march to seats, unless of course, you’re getting hit in the face by bags and stray arm sways every few seconds.
That was the case of a woman who attended the Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean show at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara this last weekend with her husband. After entering the show and attempting to navigate through the concourse after getting unfortunately misdirected by the staff at the event, “the crowds were thick and disorganized” and according to her husband, his wife “had been whacked a couple of times, on accident of course, by people not seeing her.”
Luckily though, someone noticed the man and woman struggling to just get through the crowd. In a Reddit post, the husband thanks an army of a few “guys in plaid” who came to his wife’s rescue:
One of your wives or girlfriends, saw what was going on, gave you a heads up, and you and your buddies went shoulder to shoulder, creating a flying wedge of redneck flesh. The crowds wilted before you and then, when we got seperated, you stopped, reformed the formation and got us to our gate.
I cannot thank you enough, I wish I had seen where you were seated as I sorely wanted to thank you for your assistance. I looked over the sea of people looking for you but the chances of recognizing you four plaid and blue jean clad guys in a sea of country music fans was simply impossible.
Whoever you are “guys in plaid,” you’re kindness was not lost on this couple.
“During the intermission I raised my glass to you and wanted to take the chance that one of you might see this,” he wrote. “If so, I owe you a beer.”
Good job dudes.
