Seat cushion prices go up tomorrow for football season ticket holders

Submitted by BVB on July 31st, 2012 at 1:25 PM

I have had re-ordering the seat cushions on my list for a while, but for some reason looked into it today (slow day at the office).  I found that if you don't order by August 1st, the price goes up to $36 per (from $32). 

Just a heads up for anyone who wants them, but hasn't placed their order yet.  Here's the website - www.seatbacks.com/cushion/main.asp?school=wolverineseats

I tailgate with a big group every home game and we pretty much go at it right up until about 11:45 or 3:15 as the case may be.  With these seat cushions already installed at my seat, I've never had to worry about encroachers or being "that guy" who has to tell half a row to move over.  I don't use them so much as a seat cushion as I do a seat reservation, they are also taller than most portable seat cushions and allow shorter individuals (like my wife) to see over the person in front better.

All that I wanted to be sure of, was that my row-neighbors hadn't ordered them.  If they get them, I don't want them.  If they don't get them, then I will.

From the IMG-affilitated website:

  • CLEARLY DEFINES SEAT
  •  
  •  
  • COMFORTABLE & CONVENIENT
  •  
  •  
  • MAKES A GREAT GIFT FOR FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER
  •  
  •  
  • NO MORE NEIGHBOR SITTING HALF-WAY ON YOUR SEAT
  •  
  •  
  • NO MORE SITTING ON A WET, COLD BENCH 

Two out of five reasons are the same; basically marking your seat area.  And the height thing is kind of nice.  But obviously, they get just as wet as the bench if it rains before the game.  It is a little bit amazing, how they don't soak up water like a sponge if it rains hard on Friday.

I can tell all of my close and personal friends on MGoBlog this much -- if you call SeatBacks.com and ask them about your row-neighbors, they WILL tell you if they have purchased them.

Worth every penny.  Our neighbors kinda hated our guts last year, but they only came to the "big" games anyway, so they can kiss my butt.  My well-cushioned butt, that is.

Edit:  I realized after posting that since I refered to my butt as "well-cushioned", I opened the door to many fat ass jokes.  Whatever I get, I deserve it.

They are certainly worth it in my case  - I use them not only as a reservation of sorts (although it didn't stop a couple guys from trying to appropriate my seats at the EMU game last year), but as a geospatial reference when I arrive at the stadium since not many people near me seem to have them.

... mainly to "claim my seats" as many others have said. Also, if there are any other new season ticket holders, you can find out your seats from the website (if you haven't ordered) or via phone (if you have ordered).

I'll be wayyyyy up in Sec 18, Row 94, Seats 9 & 10
