Stadium Work Continues

Some of you have probably been following the construction of the stadium via the webcams...and then some of you probably have a crappy computer like I do and can't get it to work. One of the taller, goofier friends of Spit Blood sent me this picture earlier this afternoon, showing the progress being made on the video board being installed in the southeast endzone. Chris Del Conte included a picture of this in his weekly Notes on a Scorecard, where he also mentioned that 18,300 season tickets have already been sold. That's nearly 5,000 more than this time last year, and they are hoping to reach 25,000 before the home opener against Louisiana-Monroe on September 17th. With a temporary capacity of about 32,000, that means there will only be about 7,000 tickets remaining for each individual game. I'm no expert on supply & demand, but what that suggests to me is that you better go ahead and buy season tickets before you're forced to buy your way into the game from a guy whose other job is selling magazine subscriptions door-to-door.

J.J. Henry at +1


Thru his first 18 at the U.S. Open at Congressional, J.J. Henry is at +1, currently 4 shots back and in early contention. Let's hope J.J. sticks around for the weekend and doesn't implode tomorrow, not that he's ever done that before...

Oh my God



As this appears to have been done completely non-ironically, it serves two purposes:

1) Provide evidence that you should never, ever become involved with a fraternity at a national level

2) Give a fair warning to any high school kids out there considering spending their college years in Waco

TCU tops non-AQ mailbag ESPN

Athletic Department:







Obviously it's the start of the slow news time of the year for TCU sports, but that doesn't mean we're going into hibernation. If you've got a good idea for stuff that we should post about during this time in between baseball and the start of football, let us know in the comments section! Or if you're really bold, send us an email and see if we deem you worthy enough to post on your own (don't be shy- you've read some of the shit we allow on here).
