High School Football Tickets on Craigs List?

It's been tough being consistent with updating my blog lately. With football season in full swing, I get writers block because all I can think about is football!

Oh speaking of football, did I tell ya that next week is a HUGE game for Edison H.S. Football? Ya well Freshman, JV & Varsity are all undefeated. We play our rival school Fountain Valley for the league championship.

The game was supposed to be at the local Junior College because it holds a larger capacity. However this year it completely sold out in 1 day! People are selling tickets for $30.00 or $40.00 on Craig's List. WHAT? Isn't that crazy?

They decided to move the venue to a larger stadium. It's now at Cal State Fullerton. They're selling tickets only to Edison students & the parents of students (tons of people couldn't get tix to watch their own son's play) I would love to hear if someone actually pays for those Craigs List tix when it gets close to game day because they couldn't get them anywhere else.

Anyways, to give you an idea of the stuff going on this next week to prepare. Tomorrow all of the parents meet to do posters, goody bags and clean & decorate the boys lockers (it's pretty gross!) Last year one of the boys had an old, smelly, moldy breakfast, not to mention the stench from their sweaty unwashed clothes! We bring tons of Lysol & fabric softner sheets to try to get rid of the smell!!

On Wed. the Freshman have a big dinner. JV/Varsity have theirs on Thursday. Then all the parents show up at the H.S. @ 2:00 A.M. (YES...I said 2:00 A.M., it's not a typo) on Friday morning to decorate every inch of the school with posters, balloons and signs along the street. It's a BIG tradition. It's not only for the championship, but also for the "BATTLE OF THE BELL". Which the winning school gets to keep for the whole year until the next match up. We've had it for the last 4 years.

It's going to be fun...I'll post pics. Also, they announced that they will broadcast the game live on the internet. I'll find the link and post it.

I completely understand your sports situation. We have the same thing here. People will get to the stadium 1 1/2 hours early to get in line for tickets.


I love school rivalry's :)

Wait...why are the parents in charge of doing all of the decorating? What happened to the student council doing that or the cheerleaders???
