LIST OF WWE PERSONNEL?!?
[UPDATE 8/26/2014 from Seth:]
While the ticket spreadsheet was awesome for its time, we've known for some time that it's subject to abuse, and more likely to be damaged the more our community has grown. We've been on the lookout for some way to add a layer of security that's still free on both ends. Now we have that!
Go here: http://www.tiqiq.com/sellerdirect and sign in with your Facebook account. Then list your tickets, put MGoBlog somewhere in your description if you like, then copy the link to your tickets and paste on the spreadsheet.
Nobody's forced to use that system. This is just a protection for sellers so their price can't be changed, and for buyers so they know they're dealing with a real human with a name and pictures of their cat.
To go along with the 'more informative headlines' theme, this thread will hopefully get set as a sticky. I have made a spreadsheet listing all people selling and looking for tickets.. http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Avnckx2kNv9GdGVPQXBQMDZQdFJ4RTJS... Basketball season is here.. I've started up a new sheet in the document for basketball. Ive made the permissions open to anyone to edit, so we'll try the trust method for a while until someone abuses. Feel free to post what you are looking for or selling. If it gets abused, I'll go back to the method of requiring someone to email me and then posting.
I was inspired by the most recent MGoBlog roundtable at WTKA to look into the 1925 football season, specifically the Northwestern game played at Soldier Field in what must have been horrible conditions. The story is well-told by Northwestern Wildcat Football.
The weather was so bad that only 20,000 showed up at the game, well short of the number of tickets sold. Northwestern actually punted on their first play from scrimmage, and Benny Friedman fumbled the kick. The ball was recovered by an NU player, who started running towards the end zone. But he was so caked with mud that he was tackled by NU's captain, Tim Lowry, on the 2 yard line. NU couldn't score a touchdown and so had to kick a field goal. Those were the only 3 points scored against Michigan that year.
The only other score of the game was a safety that NU took intentionally to avoid disaster. At the time, the team that took a safety got the ball back on their 30 yard line. The aftermath, as described by the book:
The rest of the game was a series of punts... Northwestern put all 11 of its players on the defensive line... Northwestern pulled off one of the biggest upsets in history. Yost was furious and played a major role later in getting the rules of football changes, so that a team that has suffered a safety must free kick the ball to its opponent. .....
After the game the Wildcat fans waged riots across Chicago, Evanston and on campus. Ecstatic students returned from Soldier Field and doused an abanadoned fraternity house with oil, setting the buildingon fire. By the time firemen arrived, students had thronged the fire and were chanting and singing wildly. The firemen turned their hoses on the rioters in an effort to calm them. The students overpowered the stunned firemen, took their axes and destroyed the fire hoses. Students also attempted to burn down what remained of Northwestern Field, but were turned back by waves of police. The mob moved into downtown Evanston and built a bonfire so large that the heat melted the overhead wires for the city's trolley system, sending the trolley supports crashing. The Evanston chief of police had to send in men armed with tear gas to disperse the fans.
I thought it would be nice to wish our new coach and his wife a Happy Anniversary today. Harbaugh sent this out on twitter this morning to 130,000 followers. Posted here for the ones who do not follow on twitter.
I was just thinking how really stupid San Fransico is AGAIN. Could you imagine 44+ wins in 4 years and they didn't do everything in their power to keep him.
Hell this was innocent.........................
I have done so much worse after a few drinks............
