It's because of your GDAC donation (the $50 for each seat) that you receive the parking.


If anyone ever needs extra's, please let me know (I have two seats). I only get to 1-2 games per year due to work and distance.  I also sit in the Upper Deck for the same reasons as GDG.  


Dane96 sits right by me, Click and Jimbo (and maybe others). I feel like we have the best seats in the house. Right on the 50 yard line nice and high. See everything. I've sat in the lower level for the spring games and I can't see crap on running plays.

I promise to behave. lol.



 Since there's just the two of us it's not a burden, but I could see where it would be prohibitive if there was a brood to bring along. There should be some sort of youth pricing to try and build up the fan base for future years. 



We've found the berm a good solution for kids. Tickets are cheaper and many kids aren't great about sitting in one spot for a long time. On the berm they can wander and roll down the hill. Sight lines aren't quite as good and you do miss Eli yelling at the quarterback but hey, you can't have everything.

The are going to be good again, no doubt, but are they 54 spots better than UA?


Until we prove otherwise.


VT was veteran and steady last year while we were young and a little more up and down. Our side of the equation should change this year with a returning backcourt.


Things I hope we can see this year:

-A back-up PG. Costa Anderson did a nice job holding down the fort last year but I'd like to see him more off the ball.

-Someone to fill the Dallas role. He was a Swiss Army knife for us.

-Offense off the bench.

-Some kind of post presence. Maybe a lot to ask from one of the newcomers.

Vermont in at #64


Hard to argue since they had a great RPI last year. They were amazingly consistent. Didn't really have a "big" win - Yale was probably their best - they just kept beating teams they were supposed to beat.

One of the auction items is for seats in the General Managers box at Yankee Stadium with Coach Patsos. I was thinking that would be a great gift for Bob87. Maybe if we all pooled our money we could pull it off. :D


Seriously, though it's a great event and I'm sure there are better auction items.
