The last time we were able to have everyone was 6 years ago gators. Jeff we have replaced the fan. You should be safe.

  2. Veena and I have our flights. We'll be in Friday morning and are leaving Sunday.

    Is the thermostat upstairs working?

  3. Peacock is coming solo. He shall sleep behind the TV that Bruscia hid behind (yet won't admit) on the evening of the fan free-fall.

  6. I will be coming up with Ruth-Ann and Chris.. I'll come home with her, as long as she doesn't go into labor, then I'll need another ride home.. Jaime?!?! May I ride home with you if baby Spinosa wants to make sure she is old enough to go to the National Championship game?

    Also, may Ruth-Ann have a bed to sleep on.. I'm not sure she'll enjoy getting up from an air mattress every five minutes to go to the rest room. Thank you very much.. And she'll appreciate it greatly.. Chris can sleep on the floor though :)

  8. Chris and Ruth Ann will have the upstairs bedroom. Jamie and Veena have the computer room.

    Peacock we have a new fan from last time. We plan for you to sleep right under it.

    ReplyDelete
  9. PS Peacock. The new fan must be secured well because I put it up. Don't you feel safe now?????

  10. Chris/Ruth-Ann, I don't know if you want the upstairs bedroom. The thermostat is like the terminator, once you turn it on it doesn't turn off. If you like sleeping on the Sun then maybe you'll like it.

  11. I can get 6 general public tickets together (section 111) from my buddy Hike. It appears that face value is $105 for those. If I don't get my tickets then I will take 2 of those. Let me know who else needs/wants in on these.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hey me and Kelly will be up late fri night and leaving sun or mon afternoon Jamie will take 2 tickets off your hands if you dont mind.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I didn't get alumni tickets. You need 121 points and I only have 56.

    ebay SECCG Tix

    Looks like there are some that are going for $225 for a pair. There are other very inflated ones, but this is always the case as people try to fish that don't really intend to sell.

    If you watch it enough you can get a pair for $225. However, in my experience tickets at the venue the day of the game are generally $30 to $50 cheaper than on ebay.

  14. Jamie I will take one if you have any left let me know.

  16. We will be calling for SEC tickets tonight. We will let you know how many we get, right now we are calling in for me and Chris, Cassie, Jaime, ChrisT, Bruce, Peacock, Aparna, Jim and Donna.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Good luck, sice I am Christ i will see what I can about you guys getting through on the phone.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You guys are the best. I feel like a tremendous slack ass, but unfort, there is nothing I can do but be a tremendous slack ass.

    If you need me to help with the dialing, let me know. You know how to reach me.

    As I said orig. - I appreciate your work for me. If you can't pull one for me, I won't hate you.

    I just won't like you very much ;).

    ReplyDelete
  19. ChrisT- you are supposed to be a Gator and your phone gods were not looking out for us tonight. We only got through for 3 tickets before they sold out. 1st time in 10 years, we haven't got all the tickets we needed. But don't despair, Chris and I may have 2 tickets and I'm sure we will find more tickets somewhere and we can scalp in Atlanta if needed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The ebay tickets have REALLY come down in price. I'll keep an eye on it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I may be able to get 6 together in section 204 for $110. Who is in for those?

    I need to know ASAP. Please speak up right now or I'm letting it go.

  23. Peacock is in for that James William.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know where we could get a box with 20 seats for $8.ooo.oo ?????

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm for it Uncle Jim, if you are buying

    ReplyDelete
  26. Jamie- were you able to get the 8 tickets?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks Dad! It will be a blast. How many of those tickets do you already have allocated?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ruth-Ann, I got the 6 in section 204. The bids on the 8 went to $970, so I missed out on those.

    Thus we have 2 blocks of 6 for the following people:
    CHRIST our Lord (1)
    Broke Bruce (1)
    Awaiting Jordan Peacock (1?)
    Jamie & DJV (2)
    Collins (1)
    Hike (1)
    Bruscia (1)
    Mike & Kelly (2)

    Total: 10
    Extra: 2

    Don't turn away cheap extra tickets though... I have several friends that want to go if the price is right.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Jamie- can you reserve those other 2 tickets for me and Chris just in case we don't get the other 2 we are waiting on. Chris says we should know by tomorrow- but it may be longer.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Christ may want an extra ticket for a friend if we end up having extras.

    ReplyDelete
  31. James, thanks for the work on the ticket and count me down as a definite.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think James is not gonna know about having extra tix until gameday, meaning if you bring a friend, there is a chance they won't be sitting with us and will have to find a ticket.

    So they'd be going having to assume they'd be without a ticket, which is a risk they have to decide upon. Also remember these are not bench seats, so there is no sliding of people in the row.

    James William has friends in the ATL, as he grew up there.

    You got it guy! Is Jordan out?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have a feeling that we'll end up with an extra ticket or two. We should know for sure by Monday. With that said, every time I've been to this game there have been pairs of tickets for face value and less outside the Dome.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Jordan will know today about his ticket situation. I will keep you posted James. If I have to eat a ticket, so be it. I know it will work out. For now, keep me locked in on that ticket of yours. I will keep you updated.

    ReplyDelete
  37. PEACOCK FINAL TICKET SITUATION: I need one in the block that you got James William.

    Jordan's tix fell through.

    I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.

    ReplyDelete
  38. A little late, but LOL on the DJV.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Chris and Ruth Ann:

    I got Friday off from work so will also be heading up at approx. the same time as you guys.

    I really don't want to drive up by myself, so even if it's just caravanning, that'll keep me awake at least.

    What are your departure plans for Friday? I could always drive up to Gainesville Thurs. night and head out with you all on Friday. Hell I could even leave my car there and drive up with you guys, space and Peacock-tolerance permitting.

    Let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hey Peacock, we are not leaving until 4 pm on friday- when I get off work. We also have Cassie, Jaime, and Aparna riding with us. We can definitly see if we have room for you, if not we can caravan.

    ReplyDelete
  41. R.A. - TY for the update. That puts us in pretty late which is what I was trying to avoid, which is why I took Fri. off work, but I understand. Don't rule me out.

    Mulford, what time you and DJV arriving Fri.?

    ReplyDelete
  42. 10 am what the hell? Theres no way the sun will be up when you leave Dallas. That must be 10pm

    ReplyDelete
  43. Jamie- the 2 tickets we were waiting on fell through, so we will need those 2 you were saving for us. Also, I'm sure you already know, but Bruce won't be there and Christ wants a ticket for himself and 2 for friends if we have extras.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This seating chart shows where Florida & Arkansas fans are sitting.

    The tickets I got are in sections 111 and 204.

    They are yours.

    Also, I'm sure you already know, but Bruce won't be there
    11/27/2006 01:15:49 PM


    I did not hear that. I'm sure he's avoiding telling me. He did not approve it with me.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Christ wants a ticket for himself and 2 for friends if we have extras.

    CHRIST, I don't have any extra at the moment.. but that could change. How many of your friends are coming with absolute certainty?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Spinosas and fellow Gainsvillians???

    Anyway. The Peacock does not want to arrive in ATL late on Friday, thus taking Friday off of work.

    I wish it would work out that I would hook up with you all and head out, but leaving at 4 p.m. is not worth taking a day off of work.

    I wish you happy sails and I shall rendesvous with yous in ATL at the Chateau de Muford Sr.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Peacock- no problem, we can always follow each other on the way back

    Jamie- talked to my wishy/washy brother- Bruce may now be coming but said don't worry about a ticket. Christ dosen't have internet access right now- but said he has 2 friends definitly coming- if you get any tickets they'll take them but I also told Chris it shouldn't be too hard to get tiks there if needed.

  49. I picked up the student tickets today for me, Aparna, and Cassie. They are in section 124 row 31 aisle L33. We also got tickets to the SEC fanfare which looks pretty fun. Anyone else interested? Adult admission is $8.00.

    I know someone selling two tickets for $115 each...let me know if anyone is interested. It would be best to call me because I have a busy week ahead and may not get to check back until Thurs night.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Speaking of fanfare... I think all the tickets I got also come with fanfare tickets if anyone wants to go.

    ReplyDelete
  51. CHRIST: It is possible that I will have 2 more extra tickets in one of our blocks. I will let you know for sure when I know.
