Real Fans Get Down on the Floor
According to MSNBC, Davidson is paying for their students to go to the third round of the NCAA tournament in Detroit this weekend. This includes free transportation to the game, lodging, and tickets.
Would no one come to the game if they don’t do this? Georgetown student tickets are pretty hard to come by for the tournament unless you’re a season ticket holder. Yet still people find a way to get to the game which usually includes a cross-country road trip, sleeping on a questionable floor, and making nice with the scalpers. Where there’s a will there’s a way.
Maybe I’m just jealous, but I think there’s something special about student initiative to go out of your way, on your own budget, to support your team. No matter how upset those Davidson kids are going to be if they lose on Friday, at least it won’t be on their own dime.
