So I've been interested in getting 2 new season tickets at the club level. But despite my rationale to the wife that 1- the expansion has created a rare opportunity to get M season tickets (to anyone willing pony up the cost) that may not be available again without going on a wait list, and 2- the cost may be tax deductible, she is not completely convinced. The fact that she's a Purdue grad may have something to do with that. Or that because of the license fee one game ticket ends up costing a couple hundred dollars. Anyway, so I hit on the idea of splitting the tickets up, taking 4 games for myself and 4 for a friend. But since most of my M grad friends are now out of state, I struck out. Now I turn to mgoblog. Would anyone be interested in splitting them with me?
Here is my thought. I'm going soon to check out the new seats. I would hypothetically purchase the seats sometime after. I would purchase them in my name and control their future, but for that privilege I would also pay more than half of the total purchase price. Given 8 games this year we could split them up evenly, 4 apiece, on an alternate choice system. I would get first pick (MSU, but I may be willing to negotiate that) and you would have the next, and so on.
Cost breakdown: the cheapest zone of the club level (roughly located at each end zone corner) is $3,000 for two tickets, plus approx. $400 for the season tickets themselves. The next level of club seats are $4,500 (all the info is at mgoblue). If for example, I bought the lowest level of club seat, the total cost would be roughly $3,400. I would pay $1,800 and you $1,600. Higher for the next level up obviously. So that's my thinking.
An email address will be below if anyone is interested, One major caveat upfront: I'm soliciting this and then, if I get an offer that we both agree to, will discuss it with the aforementioned wife. I cannot absolutely guarantee that after that I'm not forced to cancel, or that something else unforeseen (plane crashing into house, financial emergency, etc) occurs to prevent this. We might verbally agree and then two days later you hear from me with my regrets. So don't count on anything until we shake hands, and I accept your check. But the chances are good that acceptance and agreement equals season tickets.
If more than one person responds I'll get back to you in the order that they came in. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If I've overlooked something in this I'm sure it will be pointed out. I may hear new info when I go take my tour as well.
