Just protest them loudly and obscenely.

Oh don't worry there will be a lot of that too. Already have 200 people who have signed up to protest their arrival. I am seathing in anger. I have 2 cousins overseas and two family friends overseas. They fact that these ****ers are even allowed to be in the same area code as me, much less on my street is enough to boil my blood.

They... invited Westboro Baptist?

Hon, are you sure you're going to the right school?

Here in TN they came to protest a soldier's funeral a few months back. Several local motorcycle organizations showed up to counter them and completely drown out their chanting, etc. Protesters also outnumbered them about 10:1.

A girl from my high school was one of the people who went to protest that "church", though not part of any motorcycle group, and she posted some pictures on facebook. You couldn't even see the church group because of all the people and flags.

Yeah, compare that to ETSU, who just had Ron Jeremy on campus for a forum debate on the issues surrounding the adult entertainment industry.

I'm not kidding.

Pretty sure Ron Jeremy came out to MTSU during my time there, too.


My ticket rep sucks. I'm basically throwing my money at the team and she doesn't seem to want to take it. First my ticket issues, now the extra jersey I ordered last week but the money still hasn't come out. arg!

Story is false. A professor in comparative religion was attempting to bring in one representative of Westboro to speak to a class. Miami University did NOT approve visit, nor would anybody from Westboro be invited at a sponsored university event. What an individual professor tries to do is one thing, sponsored visits by the university is another, completely different thing.

"I want to make it perfectly clear, that this is a group whose focus on hatred and personal destruction is aberrant to the values we strive to instill at Miami. The attempt to study their actions in the classroom should not be misunderstood as condoning or accepting their hate-filled rhetoric," said David Hodge, president of Miami University.

Thought I should provide a clarification.

I e-mailed mine after I checked and my parking pass money hadn't been withdrawn. (I think I went into that before, but long story short is I ordered them with my tickets last spring but it didn't get entered.) She said she'd turned the order in after we talked on the 16th...so she went to check on the status. She wrote later that they were absolutely slammed with pre-season ticket sales and they hadn't gotten to it. She said she'd deliver my passes personally.

Perhaps your best bet is to go to the top (Nat) and get things going. There may be a problem with not enough personnel for the demand, but he does want to make things right. If you submitted an order form for the jersey, it may not have reached the people it should have yet, but you may be able to get what you have ordered on time.

I had to call her regarding a Meet the Team Party voucher we didn't get this morning, I'm going to ask about the jersey when she calls back and then go from there depending on her answer.

I'm excited that the ticket sales are over whelming, that's a good sign for the team but at the same time, I can't help to be annoyed when it's my orders going wrong.

Is it Saturday yet???

I was told that both Saturday preseason games are sold out. I don't remember that ever happening before.

we'll see....lol.

I wonder how much goo goo (is that standard candy co?) is paying for that sponsorship... I hear a man behind me one game talk how much the preds wanted for his sponsorship for a free product (about the same price as a googoo) that they would have to come into his store to redeem. Was double digit thousands..

we'll keep track and see who is closest!

The Sounds gave out vouchers for free GooGoo 3 packs at the gate after the season finale. That's a lot of GooGoos.

Also, rep dropped the ball because she quit and nobody was picking up her accounts. No 2nd new jersey, was rudely told I could buy one in the proshop, waiting on a response from someone higher.

So ready for the wins to count and for this ride to start. Looking forward to a lot of ups and no downs!

Sucks to hear about your rep. Mine is great. Met up with him before the game and finalized my flex12 package before faceoff.

I'm a sucker for the Superman shirt rip. And sometimes at night I get bored and things like this happen...





Reminds me of the Halloween costume idea I had where I sew together half a Wings jersey (Left side) and half a Preds jersey (Right side) and torch the Wings side. Throw in a goalie mask with a defaced left side, some decent makeup and suddenly Two-Face is a hockey fan. Ah, if only...

I want to know who is bankrolling these people?

I mean, I dont know of anyone in my church, let alone hundreds or more, who have the time and money to just pick up and hit the road to go protest at the drop of a hat.

dont these people have jobs?? families??

They're giving away GooGoos now?! Figures they would wait until I couldn't attend games regularly to start that one. I haven't had a GooGoo Cluster in years, and I'm not sure if they even sell them out here. All we've got is Dr. Enuf, although, really, Enuf is Enough.
