Wife and I are going. Got good seats and driving down.... but where do I park? I didn't buy one of those parking decals, but thought there would be some places to park for the day or some pay meters? The stadium looks far away from most things on the map. Any good ideas?

It's the local brokerage office in Ann Arbor. These internships are typically offered up by boosters to student athletes. They have career fairs and resume drops for student athletes.

The tix discount seems like it's just to get more ppl interested.. i.e., doesn't necessarily seem to be football-specific, since they are also cutting the interest list donation minimum for Michigan Basketball as well... and Michigan Basketball has been wildly successful over the past few years.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Also, if you guys are coming||
Also, if you guys are coming in from out of town, I highly recommend that you guys don't eat the typical college grub, but rather, that you try the Indian food in Iselin (probably the best Indian food on the east coast and only about 15 min drive from Rutgers) or the Korean BBQ AYCE place in Edison (i.e., All You Can Eat Korean style ribs, bacon, chicken and steak).

I actually decided to buy Rutgers season tix because they're not much more than just buying the tickets to the Michigan game. 4 seats on the 15 yard line, row 13. I also am going to sell the other tix and try to make a bit back. Funny thing is I had to pay a 50 bux per seat PSD to Rutgers (and I have no affiliation)... I felt so trolled...

their car leases are paid for as part of their contract. also there are a number of auto dealers in the area that donate car leases for the coaching staff. for example, hoke also gets 2 cars (it's in his contract).

Haha... but I don't have a big boat so I can afford the 8 tix. I do have a hot wife though so we're even on that front!

stubhub is just an intermediary. they make transaction fees (15% on the seller and 10% on the buyer) and they do not directly profit on the increase in secondary market resale values... i.e., similar to a real estate broker.

if u buy 2, then you get $22.10 in ebay bucks too. so that's an added bonus.

There are so many negative nancies on the board. If the prices are too high, you're mad at DB, and if the prices are too low, you're still mad at DB.
I support my team regardless, and if that means I have to eat balogna sandwiches for a month instead of filet mignon in order to go to a few games, then that's the price I have to pay. Can we please have a moratorium on whining about ticket prices for at least a month? Jeez. Just enjoy your summer and relax... please.

I kind of feel like if you don't want other ppl calling you something, then you shouldn't call yourself that same thing.... It confuses the heck out of ppl.
I know there is a whole "own the word" movement... but honestly, it just confuses ppl.

Quick copy and paste summary for those who don't want to click the link to read.
"The USTPO applied a two-prong test to figure out if the marks were disparaging:
"a. What is the meaning of the matter in question, as it appears in the marks and as those marks are used in connection with the goods and services identified in the registrations?
b. Is the meaning of the marks one that may disparage Native Americans?"
The office easily concluded that “Redskin” was meant to mean “Native American” as the Washington Football team uses it. Putting an actual Native American on the helmet and having the band dance around like “wild injuns” in a Mark Twain novel probably sealed the deal on that.
The second prong is where the heart of the matter is:
"The question is only as to the second prong, whether the term is disparaging… In other words, respondent’s alleged honorable intent and manner of use of the term do not contribute to the determination of whether a substantial composite of the referenced group found REDSKINS to be a disparaging term in the context of respondent’s services during the time period 1967-1990, because the services have not removed the Native American meaning from the term and intent does not affect the second prong. If ti is found to be disparaging during the relevant time period, then the Trademark Act mandates removal from the register."
Ballgame. Once the office determines that the alleged “honorable intent” of Washington Football Club is irrelevant, then all it has to do is find that “redskin” is in fact offensive to Native Americans. And while the decision is 177 pages long, you shouldn’t need a bunch of expert testimony to figure that out. You could just listen to old-school Chris Rock, who once said “The Washington Redskins, that’s not nice. That’s a racial slur. That’s like having a basketball team named the New York Niggas.”
Rock cracked that joke in 1990, folks. A Quinn Emanuel associate made the case in 2009. Redskins has been obviously offensive for quite some time."
