I just got an email saying the gala is canceled and they are issuing refunds. :-(
further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
...run out of timeouts.
can loan you one?
Wonder why it was cancelled?
or, perhaps one of the parties couldn't make it (maybe they couldn't find Ray Jackson).
The tickets were kind of steep and they were going up against the Final Four, weren't they? I guess we won't know until we know. I'd have gone though.
I'm betting it's a combination of:
1. No one from Michigan athletics willing to be within 50 miles of it.
2. Slow tickets sales.
seem plausible. That explain for the slow ticket sales.
Can I get a copy of that email?
Sent. Sorry it took so long, just jumped back on here now.
Maybe CWebb did the diva thing and demanded a higher appearance fee.
just a theory - this was canceled because MSU made the final four. sounds stupid, but i really don't think these guys want to deal with a bunch of drunken sparties yelling shit about ed martin all weekend.
