I'm pretty bummed...I got an email back from Texas Sunday that I didn't get tickets.
I've been going with my family (wife & 2 kids) to the bowl game - wherever - every year. We really get into it. Im in the Longhorn foundation but I don't give much more than the minimum, and I get decent season tickets seats at DKR-M.
Immediately after the Ohio State game I booked a hotel and airline tickets to Pasadena. Last year the best we could get was a room about 15 miles from teh Rose Bowl, so I wanted to book early...but I was really hoping for tickets.
I looked on eBay, but the going rate is right about $1000 for the end zone. $4K is a lot more than I want to spend, but I'm still thinking about it. I guess all of the NC hype has pushed this out of reach. There were a lot of tickets available for that last Holiday Bowl !
