I arrived and entered the stadium through the Balsam gate at 6:30 pm. I was expecting to be one of the first 25,000 people to enter to get a Tiger towel, but sadly I was dissapointed to find out there weren't any left. Dissapointed, I went straight up to my seat and realized there couldn't have been more then 7 or 8 thousand people in the stadium. What happened to all the towels?
Darling Husband and I arrived about 45 minutes before the game started and we had to go on a mission to hunt down the towels - but eventually we found some! It was almost like going on a treasure hunt. That promotion went sour.
A young girl from California, my Buddy's grandaughter, attending her first CFL game went home very happy. She had a great time and went home with at least 5 towels for her friends back home. She mooched them from other family members that took her. So at least 5 towels will show up in the San Diego area this coming week. TKS Cats.
My wife and I arrived at Melrose gate about 6:20...NON LEFT????
To add insult to injury though...I had a less than pleasuarable experience with one of the security people and one of Hamilton's "finest"???? (sic.) over 2, 12 ounce bottles of nestle "water" unopened!
But that's another story!!!!
4 season tickets...a non-drinker who travels 162ks one way to get to a game and they decide that I'm a criminal who should be put out...just as underage drunks with beer taped to their bellys to curse and swear and act like morons are allowed in! The police are pathetic! :thdn:
As far as the towels go...not a big deal to me...I've got a couple I bought last year anyway, and we sat with friends at Philthy's after the game and enjoyed the great food and atmosphere...and on the cheap :thup: :thup:
I got mine at 5:30 as well on the Beechwood Gates and they had tons of boxes plus they had Pioneer Party Crew people walking around handing them out to people as well. Those giveaways never last long By 6:15 there was a lot of people in the stadium and long lines were formed by the BBQ's.
