Season Ticket Holders Get An Extra Fee

Several readers have complained to me that they must pay a $35 Coliseum improvement fee as part of their season ticket purchase for next season.

Maybe the money can be used to help these students who fixed the Coliseum thermometer, which was permanently stuck on 70 degrees.

    What’s this ? Did Haden spend all the money on new women’s lacrosse uni’s ?

      Hey man, have you ever watched lacrosse? My 17-year-old daughter is angling for a college scholarship in lacrosse.

        She has a sweet stroke. Like Bo, I know.

        That would be sweet if she ended up a Trojan.

        • EncinitasBruin

          You know what, if she were offered a schollie to SC, I wouldn’t stand in her way. Wouldn’t wear cardinal and gold to parent’s day, but I’m not an idiot: with an acceptance rate of only 18%, she’d be fortunate to attend school there.

            Let us know what happens!

          • EncinitasBruin

            I will! She actually filled out a recruiting app last night–you guys inspired her :)

    One night in November of 2011 the visitor’s side of the scoreboard at the Coliseum wasn’t working. It read 0 all night long while the home side went all the way up to 50 as the night progressed.

      I remember that, it was really sad (not to me) about that scoreboard.

    • Bill

      I also recall how the new Rose Bowl scoreboard got stuck on 28 for a team that was supposed to have the Heisman Trophy winner and be the National Champion and then didn’t get a single vote in the polls going down as the most dismal failure in college football! The home side had no problems scoring 38 on Kitten’s Cover 2. Now, SuC is going to a Cover 0 defense! SuC On Your Mascot’s Skirt!

        OHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Sweeeeet one, Bill!!

        Jethro, are you ok after that humiliating kick in the crotch??

        serves you right, 50-0 was cute for a while, but like 13-9, the SOL that expression expired when the Bruins left the Pious Passer crumpled in the agony of defeat on the Rosebowl turf!!!

        AUUUUUU-WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Replay from Tuesday afternoon!

          That limp never seems to get any better, it’s a hard thing to give up when you enjoy it so much

      • http://twitter.com/FatBooster Joe Blow

        How about when Fucla won 20, yes TWENTY, in a row and didn’t win a NC? Hahahahahaha

      • TrojanFan

        Hey Bill, you’re lost when it comes to all this football talk, please stick to the cartoon network

        Any new breakfast items?

    • EncinitasBruin

      Alright, I’m a Bruin but found this quite funny. Got me, Jethro. Kind of like the Rose Bowl and Colisseum scoreboards in the 90s that got stuck in UCLA’s favor for 8 years in a row, and then inexplicably got stuck on the USC side for 6 years from 2000-2005….

  • betomas

    This is too much. There should be some stipulation that none of the money raised from the additional fees will go to anything other than Coliseum improvement (if that language isn’t already there). Last football season was horrendous and a nightmarish situation for all SC fans. Haden, Kiffin and Co. don’t deserve any additional perks from money raised until they can show that they can win consistently.

    • gotroy22

      Right. Didn’t you hear Gov. Moonbeam already has pulled a trust me with Prop 30? What makes you think SC won’t siphon the funds to other areas?

      • betomas

        Actually, regarding the last part of what you wrote, yeah, I agree–I don’t doubt that SC will redirect money to other areas and Haden has his finger on the button, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he called those shots.

        • gotroy22

          It seems like private schools in general are so in love with building huge endowments that forget their original purpose, to spend on the students, employees and facilities in the here and now.

  • http://twitter.com/FatBooster Joe Blow

    Typical Haden. When are all of you going to WAKE UO?

  • http://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charles Bucket

    what about the $20 i paid to “Sonny” to “guard” my car when i parked on the street? is Sonny turning that money over to Bounce Pass?? he was wearing Southern Cal gear…

    • TrojanFan

      You stupid idiot, why would you pay someone to guard a Barbie Princess bike…..

      • http://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charles Bucket

        i figured that was you, “Sonny”…i wish i could see your face when you unfolded that “$20″ and found some key passages from Leviticus!!!

        (you should probably find somebody to explain this one to you, trust me, it was a humiliating kick in the crotch!!)

        • TrojanFan

          LAME!

          Please don’t confuse me with your latest piece of meat!

        • TrojanFan

          Hey Thai, is that you? The voice may of changed but the breath still smells the same….ouch!!!!

    • TrojanFamily

      Now I know this is a lie. Chuckles hasn’t had a 20 since the blood bank blackballed him for confusing it for a sperm bank.

  • RememberTheFreedomBowl

    Guess I misread this one..thought it was an optional fee to get Seat Cushions installed if desired
