    It's like Where's Waldo, but with alcohol!!
  2. Glad you found it funny......that was all it was trying to be. Actually, just continuing a running gag that Jim S. himself kept up early this week in a show thread!
  3. yeah, but is there a singer??

    more cowbell........I need MORE COWBELL!!!
  5. Lucas Oil - Parking?

    I see two parking threads, but both asking completely different questions......and both getting good information in their responses. Why is that a problem?
  6. Lucas Oil - Parking?

    I used to know somebody that drove in every year and parked right at the stadium in a Lucas Oil lot......but no longer have contact info and have no recollections of location of lots, price, etc.
  7. Sorry if this has been addressed before, but I didn't find anything when I went looking. In year's past, I have always stayed right downtown for Finals weekend. Parked my car at the hotel on Thursday and never saw it again until departure on Sunday morning. Everything was walking. This year for the first time, I booked a room through Airbnb and am staying about 15 minutes outside of downtown....which means getting to and from the stadium each day. I know there is some parking at Lucas Oil, but don't know how much. Can I plan on parking there? Where is the lot? How much? Or, would it make more sense to Uber or Lyft my way in and out? Any solid advice would be greatly appreciated!

    It's funny you should post this, as Ron is how I have already acquired my seats for Friday night! Still hoping something works out for Saturday as well.

    I must be a little slow on the processing end this evening......not sure I even understand what you are proposing. If you mean each see six shows on Finals night, I'm not sure how we would manage to get in and out of the stadium and the seat back and forth in time to see much of anything. AND, not sure where exactly that would leave my wife?!?!? Feel free to explain it all to me a little more slowly so that maybe I have a chance to catch up!
  10. nice idea for a thread, monarch. This could be fun!

    I feel your pain.
  12. Need TWO tickets for Semi's and Finals

    exchanged PM's with markhartman010........situation changed slightly. I believe I have secured decent seats for FRIDAY night......but still looking for TWO (2) for Finals on Saturday. My second for the weekend is now my wife instead of my daughter, but she has a dreadful fear of heights. We tried to sit in the 600's back in 2009 and she had a full-blown panic attack. I know it's hard for a beggar to be picky at this point, but any seats on Saturday would have to be anywhere from teh 100's to the 400's, no higher. Thanks to all!
  13. Indy 2017

    I never thought of THAT strategy?!?!? Maybe I should just show up and keep going to seats and telling everyone they are really mine??? See how many times I can get poachers to give up the seats and move on!
  14. Indy 2017

    No worries.....I was acknowledging that I feel your pain. Watch it happen every year, but it takes a special person to question you when they KNOW they are in the wrong. What did they think? They didn't want to give the seats up to somebody else who was poaching??
