Ticket Lottery Day!

It's typically a joyous time for Notre Dame alumni when the results of the ticket lottery are released. It's a little bit like Christmas morning, as we eagerly rush to our computers to see how many tickets we got from the enormous check we wrote several months ago. But times they are a-changin', and now that Notre Dame games are the hottest ticket in the world, today is now a day full of frustration and humiliation. The House Rock Built got shut out of every game (including against service academies), so I will spend this season slumming it and trying to get into the stadium using my wits alone. It looks like Pat from BGS will be on the corner with two fingers up as well. Damn this University and its bitter hatred of bloggers!

Need one ticket, please. One ticket.

I'm hoping to score some tickets to Navy game through Annapolis grad but in today's new world of sports entertainment they are only selling individual tickets to season ticket holders. IOW, buy season tickets to see Navy play and you can get to see ND. &%$@#! BS. There will definitely be a number of Navy folks scalping their extra tickets down the road.

Stats I've compiled:
Sorin Society Members I know with all the tickets they want: 3/3
non-Sorin Society members I know with any of the tickets they want: 0/6

Hmm, am I detecting a trend here?

Seriously. If the adminstration wants to hijack us, they should be more honest. But people donating money and entering the lottery should get something, or else boycot donations.

BGS was overloaded with posts from whiny alums, so here's my haul:

Penn State: lost (2)
North Carolina: lost (2)
Navy: won (2)
Air Force: won (2)

So it looks like I'll be walking around Blue North Sept. 9 making a peace sign with my fingers like the rest of the bynch.
