Ranting, Not Rambling

So this is going to come off more like a rant than just my usual ramblings, but please tell me I'm not alone in thinking that this is absolutely absurd... We are preparing to take Munchkin to her first real Auburn football game, on the road against South Carolina. We are meeting some friends from Virginia that have a little boy, 3 months older than Munchkin. While we are searching the web for tickets, we come across some stadium information saying that EVERYONE must have a ticket to enter the game -regardless of age!!!!! Are you kidding me? She can't even sit in the seat... She's 11 months old people! how can this be? She can get into the zoo for free, she can even fly free until she's two... What the heck? So thinking that this is some stupid SC rule, I call the ticket office for Jordan Hare, knowing that their policy is going to be more "family friendly" and the lady tells me the same thing. I quickly bite my tongue, gather my words and ask politely why this is? Evidently it has something to do with the Fire Marshall and everyone having a ticket is the only way to monitor how many "bodies" they have in the stadium. While I'm still not happy about this news, atleast I can respect the fact that it's a safety issue rather than the University trying to squeeze us out of extra money....Decisions, Decisions, do you have any idea how much this little change of plans is going to cost? And the more we win the worse it gets ( not that I don't want us to win) but good grief, $125.00 for a seat that won't be used is a little hard to grasp.

Gas to and from South Carolina - $150.00
Tickets to the game - $375.00
Seeing Munchkin at her first AU game - PRICELESS!
