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!
but we likely wont see it anyway. barclays might win one out

also, been meaning to ask you... what does the bear down moniker mean for you Wildcats?
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.
