Lions Stampede For Rosebowl Tix

Rosebowl student-tickets went on sale this morning. However, sales procedure seems to have nearly incited a riot amongst students. The Collegian has the story, I editorialize below.

The tickets are to be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis. In order to prevent camping and insanity (i guess) the administration decided not to announce the location of where the tickets would go on sale until 6.30 A.M this morning. However, students know what is up and started lining up in front of the BJC well in advance of the mysterious announcement.

This is indicative of how well this worked:
At 6:40 a.m., there were hundreds of students waiting in a line that stretched from Gate A to Curtin Road and continued down University Drive. The line seemed to form instantly once the location announcement was made.
Then they opened the gates and all hell broke loose.
"My hand got wedged between the metal and the other person," he said about being pushed inside. "I was inside, [but my] hand was outside."

Did they let the campus cops know where/when the tickets would go on sale? No. Good work.

Hello there,
I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.

Your's in Hoops,
Peter Robert Casey
