good, every seat in the house was a damn nosebleed anyway... those stadium numbers only impress the fringe, stay MGM that brings out the higher priced ticket and exclusivity of a 18 MILLION gate

more tickets more money, the ppv numbers gonna do the bulk of the load as always. floyds name is doing a higher priced ticket regardless. he cant lose!

The slogan "BEAR DOWN" was given to the Wildcat teams by John "Button" Salmon, student body president and varsity athlete, shortly before he died in 1926 following an automobile accident. His last message to his teammates was "Tell them to BEAR DOWN".

One day in 1952 Jack K. Lee, an applicant for the UA's band directorship, was leaving Tucson by air following an interview with university administration. From his airplane window, Lee observed the huge letters on the roof of the UA gymnasium. Inspired, he began to scribble down the music and lyrics to an up-tempo song. By the time his plane landed, he had virtually finished it. A few weeks later Lee was named the university's band director, and in September of that year, the UA band performed "Bear Down, Arizona!" in public for the first time. Soon thereafter, "Bear Down, Arizona!" became accepted as UA's fight song.

UK won't accept Visa's of convicted felons from the US. Tyson had this same problem a few years ago. I'm guessing those charges Mayweather caught a few years ago were a felony.

The slogan "BEAR DOWN" was stolen by the Wildcat teams from the Chicago Bears as the Wildcats were not clever enough to think of one on their own

celebs who spend big money on seats don't want to sit next to 80K... MGM had the highest gate ever, I never mentioned PPV numbers

what was the gate for Froch-Groves?... 2 Million tops?
