I Broke Down

[73]
Posted: Dec 1, 2016 6:28 PM
 

After saying that I was going to stay home and watch the ACCCG on TV for both economic reasons and also in protest of the ACC's boneheaded decision to move it from Charlotte (111 miles away) to Orlando (536 miles away), I have succumbed to Dabo's plea for fans to show up at Camping World Stadium on Saturday night. My sister, brother-in-law and I are driving down tomorrow night after work and back home Sunday. As quinquagenarians I almost can't believe we're doing this, but duty calls. Can't let down the team. GO TIGERS!


Amen

I did the same this past Monday. Someone said it well earlier - this team has given me so much joy so I will do my best to support them wherever they play. Go Tigers!

Clemsam, that pretty much hits the nail on the head. I've been a Tiger since I was a youngster, and was a student during the 1981 national championship season. I guess it's age and whatever wisdom I've gained in the years since then, but I have developed a much greater appreciation of the blood, sweat and tears that it has taken for this team of young men and coaches to achieve what they have. I figure I owe them.

Same here. Picking up my son from school in Beaufort and driving down tomorrow . Cheap rooms , cheap gas, and cheaper tickets makes it pretty affordable.

Club seats on Clemson side are going for $90 on Stubhub tickets as low as $9. Let's get some more tigers in these seats!

Nice, wife was looking for flights


Posted: Dec 1, 2016 8:23 PM
 

I'm 360 miles from Charlotte and over 800 from Orlando. Flights are 1000 for the family.

For me it's 8 miles vs 530 and my own bed vs a hotel

But I can't let down my team because our governor is an idiot.

Go Tigers! NC SUCKS!

I'm more of the opinion that the Charlotte City Council and the ACC leadership are idiots, but that's just my perspective.

GO TIGERS!

Game in Charlotte would be an overwhelming sellout.


Good move.***

So glad we will see you here. This team deserves our support! I was very sad when the game was moved...but being here to cheer this team on is something I had to do.

Go Tigers.....let's go beat some turkeys!!

Couldn't pull it off myself with invalid in home and other restrictions, but I'll be there in front of the big screen, do some yelling for me, and I'll be yelling in my living room! Be safe!

Same here. Boarding a flight here in Knoxville right now headed to Orlando with my son. Go Tigers!


Re: I Broke Down

It would be over $1,000 for me and wife for flights.
