Sorry if I'm missing a board guideline, but I have a quick question regarding row designation at the Big House as I'm trying to get some tickets for Illinois. Several sections at the Big House do not appear to reach field, more specifically Sections 5, 7, 8, 10, 14, 16, 17, 27, 29, 30, 32, 36, 38, 39, and 41 (OCD is an awful thing). My question is whether seats in these sections use the same row numbering as the others.
In other words, is Section 5, Row 1, actually at the same height as say Section 6, Row 20? Or alternatively, does Section 5 just "start" at Row 20, and Section 5, Row 20 is right next to Section 6, Row 20? Thanks in advance for any info.
Before, during or after the PSU game on Saturday, stop by the Cancer Support Community's Charity Beer Garden and save on a pint of craft beer flowing from 10 taps. You can also grab some Slows Bar BQ and a seat out of the sun and in front of a big screen.
Mention MGoBlog a the ID/ticket table and your $6 craft beer is $5.
Find it at 327 E. Hoover Ave., adjacent to Elbel Field, immediately east of the railroad tracks (used to be Purchase Radio Supply) and kitty-corner from the MMB's Revelli Hall
This and every game day, you'll find:
- 10 taps with local craft beers (plus bottled water, Coke/Diet/Sprite)
- indoor seating in the warehouse
- two big screen TV's for GameDay, pe-game, the game, post-game,
- family-friendly--bring your kids
- cash or credit cards
...and 100% of beer sales benefit the charity!
Thanks, in advance, for the support of the MGoBlog community.
I had a guided tour of the big house and locker rooms last week and I was surprised to see that the official replay booth had 4 small rather outdated 24 inch (at most) computer monitors and one old small flat screen TV (at most 40 inches). I guess this explains why the reviews take forever and are of such questionable quality. For some reason I expected giant screens with 4k ultra HD. Considering the amount of money that changes hands based on their decisions I was shocked at how low-tech it was.
Has anyone posted the intro video that was played at the stadium yesterday? Haven't found this anywhere yet, appologies if I've missed it posted somewhere else. I thought it was better than they have been in recent years, especially with James Earl Jones doing the voice over.
What did you guys think of it?
The deadline to reserve seat cushions for season ticket holders is this week. Does anybody have any opinions on renting vs buying? I was sold on renting until I saw that it was $49 a seat. Seems a little steep. The portable cushions they sell at MDen are only $17. I have zero experience with both options. Lame topic but I wouldn't mind saving $60 if it was worth it.
MGoBloggers -- Just FYSA, I received an update from Amazon referencing Jon Falk's new book, "Forty Years.."
The new expected delivery date is now Wednesday, 29 July!
This should help subside the offseason blues, albeit briefly. I'm really looking forward to his first-hand stories and will probably fly through this by Friday the 31st. Jon Falk is a living legend.
