Student Ticket Shortage Reaches Crisis Level

Things are getting desperate on campus for those scarce $5 student tickets. DU was sold out by Thursday afternoon and now the wild scramble begins. Never fear, your alumni have been sneaking into DU hockey games since CC last won a National Championship in 1957.

Top 10 Ways To Sneak Into Magness Arena


1). Have your friends "accidentally" open a fire door
2). 10 people rush the ushers with tickets, 11 get in
3). Show up at Magness 12 hours early and sleep in the catwalks. While you're up there, hang giant "CC Sucks" Banner.
4). Hide two people in Mascot costume....um scratch that idea, you can't hide people in "Raised Denver Arch"
5). Dress up in suit and woolen DU cap and enter through players entrance.
6). We snuck a freakin' keg into the arena in 1987; you can't smuggle some people?
7). Plead case to ticket manager. Explain that you were studying abroad when season tix went on sale.
8). Post a Want Ad on LetsGoDU.
9). Stand out front of arena, someone will have extra tickets
10). Bribe the usher

if all else fails go through the southern smoking section after the first period i'm sure smoking alumni will look the other way

Beautiful. Who'd think there'd be a shortage after some empty weekends we've seen?

You could always trip a CC fan on the way in, steal his ticket, and hide in the crowd...

It will be "sold out" but yet there will be many empty seats as always, as people just don't donate their tickets. We're in section 3 and the guy next to us shows up to maybe 4 games a year... in Oct. the CC game he didn't go and the seats were empty.
People, please donate your tix to your kid's elementary school, fraternity on DU, the waitress where you get your eggs and bacon... don't waste them!

Also, a pet peeve of mine... where have the students been in the south stands? I have gone to about 4 games since the beginning of January, and it's maybe a 1/3 full. But then everyone show's up for CC like they are superfans.

I feel like I'm trying to find Phish tickets, jesus. Who has my miracle for CC?

As with the other comment: please donate your tickets to the waitress. I want to see her and her eggs and bacon at the game. All the better...

At least our students stand up and cheer, unlike the comatose "student section" at the CSWA
