Re: Anyone have any suggestions for how to get a dying Skins fan good seats?

I just want to point out that I have a 50 inch DLP screen with surrond sound and I have have never had season tickets. I know it is 2 inchs shorter but the surrond sound really makes it feel like you there and we have plenty of parking as well.

I hope this helps.

I used to have a 50 inch dlp but i got rid of it because you had to sit straight in front of it to see the picture. I sold it and got a 46 inch lcd. Just thought you'd like to know.

Either you didn't understand what he was asking, or you're an odd dude...

It looks like you can get Lower Level End Zone seats (not the obstructed view ones) for around $125/ticket on StubHub to see the Rams, Chiefs, or Bucs. Maybe that is too much for you, but that is about what I paid to see the Cowboys game in the Upper Deck in 2005 and 2007. Best of luck.

Never have had a problem viewing it and I generally don't watch TV from the side but to each is own.

Hey guys, looks like the dates aren't going to work for us after all. Was shooting for the home opener but he's got doctor's appointments that day, and the earlier preseason games are night games which just won't be good for him, so ironically it sounds like we will be sticking with a TV set and "front row seats" after all.

Hey man I would still try to reach out to the organization, local sportswriters, or even players. Someone may want to help you out.

I am very sorry for what your family is going through. My grandfather went through it and it is tough.

I know a promoter that gets those front row seats for all the games... I'll ask him and see what I can do for you.

I know this probably wouldn't be ideal, but have you thought about maybe trying to see them on the road? We play at Detriot at 1 on 9/27 and at Carolina at 1 on 10/11. I feel like there should be a decent amount of Skins fans at both of those games.

Either way, my heart goes out to you, your father and the rest of your family.

Right there with you Hog! My thoughts and prayers also go with you! My Lord Jesus wanted to see my dad more than we did!


Have you thought about taking your dad to Training Camp for that interim time between now and the regular season? He might like that if you can manage to get into the shade.

Maybe wear a "Cancer Survivor" T-Shirt, and someone will ask the right questions when you go.

On a side note, call him just to call him. Talk about what kind of work he did, who his work friends were and such. Talk about his church, favorite color, favorite day, or date, or update him about family, church life, your work and such. But talk! It's the hardest thing to do, I know. Get others to talk to him if he wants, not if he doesn't. Sometimes he may just want to watch "Animal Planet" or something. Watch with him! Make his favorite food, or desert, he'll love the fact that you tried! Do your best and you won't regret it or blame yourself later!
