One more thing...

Post by goldhelmet on Mon Mar 16, 2009 9:31 pm

and then I'll quit complaining about the NCAA tournament selction committee. How does a #8 seeded Ohio State team end up playing what is essentially a home game in Dayton, Ohio?? No, it's not Columbus, but it's still Ohio.

I can see the top four seeds getting regional preferences and I have no problem with that whatsover. They should be rewarded for being a 1-4 seed. But an 8 seed playing at home? Come on, that should NEVER, EVER, happen. The committee always makes an excuse, saying that sometimes this is unavoidable. Bull... There's always the option of putting them somewhere else. Ridiculous.

Did I mention that I don't like - OK, hate is a better word - the Big 10?

OK, with that off my chest (and the ridiculous 7 teams from the Big Ten in the tournamnet off my chest) I'm ready to focus on my beloved Pilots and my winning brakets (yeah, right).... GO PILOTS !!!!!!!!!!! Beat the Tigers !!!!!!!! Basketball

GH, Ive attended and watched Big Ten game's since 1976. I'll agree that on their past rep. of Coach Knight-Indiana,Michigan-Fab Four,and Michigan State in the 2000's-with IZZo the BIG TEN has really received favorable seeds and sites in the NCAA's.Not to sidetrack but they pretty much choke or don't live up to their billing,Sound familiar,ZaggetteNationers.

Oh, I long for the day's of $8 ticket's to watch Magic, or Isiah play.
Those were the good old days that probably only Geezer and a select few here would remember ticket prices that low,lol.

Bleacher seats for the 1969 World Series were $2.00

I never paid as high as $6.00 for 1969 Knicks games.


3 DAYS of fun and music at Woodstock was $18.00

I remember seeing a ticket from a mid-80s Blazer game I went to at the Coliseum, back when my dad shared season tickets.

Section 106, row D, seats 6 and 7. Behind the basket, by the Blazer bench. $22.00 Shocked.
