According to Donnie Webb, only 30,000 tickets have been sold for Saturday night's Syracuse - Northwestern game. Memo to to SU fans - buy some f*cking tickets already!! If you need more convincing, here's a handy list of reasons to attend the game:
1,) It's a 7PM start. You can drink your face off in the parking lot for hours and not feel like an alcoholic because you started after 12:00 pm.
2.) This team is close to turning it around - if they'd played Howard like Rutgers did last week, or whatever crappy team Louisville opened their season with, the Orange would be .500 right now. It's not the team's fault the administration decided to schedule the entire Big Ten conference right out of the gate.
3.) It's supposed to be nice on Saturday - which makes point number one more enjoyable.
4.) Tickets are cheap - stop being a tight wad. You can afford it - if you can't then how are you paying for your internet service to read this post? If the answer is - I'm reading it at work, then go find the petty cash drawer - or a better paying job.
5.) Greg Robinson is gone - bitching about him is fine, taking your anger out on Doug Marrone and his team is not.
6.) Have I mentioned point number 1 yet?
7.) Who ever is broadcasting the game for Time Warner Cable will make your ears bleed. This is a given. You're sure to get someone that makes Pam Ward seem like Al Michaels.
8.) For the love of God, let's avoid crowds like the photo below, which I took last year. Now that we understand each other, I'll see you all on Saturday, I'll be the loud guy in section 319.
