Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
Yes, I'm giving away 48-yard line seats for the Akron game. Yes, there's a catch...but it's not that bad.
There's a Kickstarter project based on the Little Brown Jug and Jon Falk's retirement at the end of this season. It needs your help. If you help, you might sit in some awesome seats for the game tomorrow! The seats are few rows below the point of the Block-M and a few rows above the tunnel entrance.
Here's how it works: back the KS project at any level. There are 20 backers right now. Help me get that to 75 backers by 7:00pm today and a pair of tickets go to a randomly drawn name (I'll message the name drawn to see if they come from the MGoBlog site). If the backer level hits 150, I'll award two pairs of tickets. OR...if you can reliably convince me that you are responsible for signing up a significant number of pledges on your own, I'll give you the second pair. (Send something out to your Twitter followers or Facebook friends. Get them to help too.)
THIS IS NOT A SWEEPSTAKES OR RAFFLE! You can back the project because you respect Jon Falk's 40 years of service (Big Jon is the primary beneficiary of the effort), not because of the risk/reward balance. I'll give away some seats because I respect the Michigan fan community. That is all.
Please...go help and GO BLUE!
Just a quick question regarding the ticket spreadsheet. How often do you guys actually check it when looking for tickets? I'm (painfully) considering offing my OSU tickets, and just posted them to the spreadsheet, but wanted to make sure they would get some views there. Also, for future reference, I wanted to see how effective posting tickets there was. The best part, in my opinion, is keeping the tickets with Michigan fans.
EDIT: I am selling 4 tickets. Sec. 12. Row 7, for convenience of anyone inquiring.
[Edit - PGB: Get in on this ticket thread while its hot. The OP was creative in asking about the ticket spreadsheet before offering his tickets for sale so I'll leave this up for a while so everyone can offer their tickets or find a seller in this one thread. Otherwise, these threads will be deleted on sight - use the ticket spreadsheet.
The short answer to the question is, yes, people use the spreadsheet. Just like anything else, if they price is right people will buy. If the price is the same as listed on other websites, then it may be more convenient to buy elsewhere. In other words, cut fellow MGoMembers a price break!]
So my daughter is a senior in HS, and just got a recruiting postcard from Indiana offering a pair of free tickets to one of three games, including Michigan. We filled out the form online, and now have a ticket to the game for both of us. It includes a IU sponsored tailgate as well.
Catch: you obviously will have to sit through a recruiting spiel, and you have to know someone who IU wants to recruit as a student. But the "guest" coming along can be anyone. So if you have a younger brother or sister, or a son or a daughter who's a HS senior, and you live within driving distance, this is a cheap (free!) way to get a pair of tickets to the Michigan - Indiana game, and a meal to boot. Smacks of a timeshare sales pitch, but I can live with that. It's bonding time with my daughter, after all.
