Gator Bowl Tickets Are Pretty
you got a pic?
Edit: Now he does.
Thanks for the informative update... Pic or GTFO
A Student Section ticket?
Behind you! Section 128, Row U.
We're section 130 row EE, which I understand is behind A-Z. These are student section seats.
Section 227, row D. Parking lot H. PUMPED!
I didn't think about buying a parking pass until now, but they said that they won't ship after Dec. 15th. Do you think there will be parking available that's "relatively" close, even though it won't be in the official lots for purchase on gameday? I plan on going to the alumni association tailgate.
You can still buy a parking ticket. You will just have to pick it up the day before the game, at the Gator Bowl, by 5pm.
My wife and I are in Section 238 (Touchdown Club) row DD.
Is it just me, or does that flag have an M on it?
It looks like it in the pic he put up from far away, but no it's not!!! I'm looking at my tickets right now and their actually like two lines that go down. GO BLUE!!!
The design wasnt the coolest ever but those hard plastic tickets were the coolest I've ever received for any sort of event.
Mine are going in a frame with the huge photo print I ordered and a program. Loved that whole event.
the Tainos? O yea....
Where is the Fountain of Youth? Those conquistadors must have been pissed to have traveled all that way to come up empty handed in their search.
At least they found the Everglades? We all know where the Fountain of Youth is. Beneath GERG's scalp.
Hopefully there are no fans of Aztec descent going to this game.
The Timucuans are the ones that should be offended except they were wiped out by the guys in the picture a long time ago.
I may be mistaken, but I thought the first conquistadors landed in the Bahamas? The Tainos were wiped out by the Columbus lemmings.
Now my wife is gonna be pissed we're not going.
The Timucuans were the Northern Fla/ Southern Ga tribe wiped out by smallpox and Spanish missionaries. Pretty sad story. From over 200,000 to the last one dying exiled to Cuba ~1700.
No doubt you are correct on that. I was just under the impression that the ticket led onto the idea that it is where the first conquistadors ran ashore. This I believe was in the Bahamas. I am sure your wife wouldn't be as upset as you think she would if you did end up in the Bahamas either. As for your tickets, I will gladly pay you next Tuesday for the tickets today.
Not a big fan of the whole "genocidal invasive culture" aspect of the ticket design myself.
.... somewhere on the ticket it should say Michigan. All else is immaterial.
Could you send that to me for a closer look? The tickets I mean not the picture. I will give them back, promise!
I like the back that shows you the sections, I thought that was a good idea
... but I say the conquistador theme is butt-ugly.
Who cares, though? Go Blue... beat MSU
I got mine over the weekend too. The first thing I did was take a picture and send it to my friend and my dad.
I could go. Jealous of you all. Go blue!!!
I am worried, still have not received tix in the mail so far. I requested tix by US mail instead of 2 day UPS.
Queme Los Barcos
The scene on the ticket clearly depicts an ocean beach, yet Jacksonville is inland, not on the actual coast. If they're meaning to depict the Spanish establishment of St. Augustine, what possible relevance does that have to the Gator Bowl?
Are they equating the University of Michigan with the Spanish?
The problem is that the Gator Bowl hired Pentagram to design the ticket. Senior Pentagram management farmed the job out to their Berlin office, and the krauts mistranslated "Wolverines" as "Conquistadores."
section 134 where are you tailgating we do not have a parking pass.....
Pretty sure you can still buy parking passes through Ticketmaster. We are in Lot SS and there are still passes available for that lot.
nice looking ducat
section 140 row J. are parking pass is for lot F!!! Can not wait!! GO BLUE!!
I remember getting that Rose Bowl ticket in 2005 and showing it off to everyone. They definitely do it up for the higher quality bowl games
