BCS Pregame

Still hoping for a little more pre game info besides just show up. One vauge link on Yahoo is all I am finding.Boy 70,000 tickets vs 92000 sure makes a big difference in ticket prices. They are still $1200 to $1600 each. If you see some tickets at a good price I have several friends still looking.

Go to the corner of Bienville and Decatur. Club Decatur or Ryan's Irish Pub have TV's but neither is a sports bar. Both are great places to watch games with a lot of big screen TV's. Duck into one and then the other and decide which one your like.

$145 million. I think they fixed the leaks. A friend of mine with LA National Guard stayed there a few days after Katrina on duty but left when the water got so high in the SD they did not have a place to sleep.

Enjoy the game. Go Tigers.

Here's a link to some pre game activities. Go by Lucy's if you get a chance. You will enjoy it. It's a short walk to the game.

"I hope that they got all the leaks in the Super Dome fixed."

Was that supposed to be a joke? If so, make sure to not use it when you get to New Orleans.
