Don’t buy tickets from this guy. I know most of you guys (including myself) aren’t a big fan of working calendars, but it’s crazy how they can change your life. For example, with your new organizational tool, you can mark down that on July 16th Student Football Season tickets go on sale for $35.
I know what you might be thinking, “I can always get a 5$ ticket at the door?” or, “Haven’t had tickets the last 3 years, why get ’em now?” or my favorite, “Can we even tailgate for the games?”. Even I, Mr. UK Football meathead, was once on that side of the fence before, but as students we can no longer sit idly by without giving our team the proper support it deserves. For the last three years, we have bitched relentlessly about Joker Phillips, proclaiming drunken debauchery (also known as a tailgate) as the premiere event of the fall, not the actual game itself. Now is the time to strike while the iron is hot and turn this into a REAL SEC football school. I’m talking to you SGA; I’m talking to you fraternity social chairs; I’m especially talking to you, beautiful blue dress/cowboy boot girls. Now is the time to make this thing actually about football by combining the best damn tailgates that students can throw together, with a crowded student section worth making our football players proud of their school.
Even if season tickets aren’t your thing, I STRONGLY encourage you to witness the atmosphere Mark Stoops has created around CWS. The electricity can be felt in the air in the offseason; who knows how crazy it will be once September rolls around. Speaking of, August 31st is only 80 days away. Students can buy 3 tickets for $10 a piece for the WKU game that kicks the season off in Nashville at 7:00 EST. If you have to think twice about going to Nashville with thousands of UK fans, you obviously haven’t been to what I refer to as ‘Disney World for Adults’. A Labor Day weekend in Nashville is a no-brainer, especially when you can go for so cheap ($10 ticket +$23 hostel bed= tons of money for the bars). If that isn’t convincing enough, you can hang out with your favorites from KSR, so long as you don’t look like that creepy guy at the top of the page.
