Often a happy day for many Michigan fans, today my football season ticket renewal arrived in the mail. Of note:
* The first paragraph closes with this sentence: “In addition, we host Minnesota in the battle for the Little Brown Jug and the regular season culminates with ‘The Game’ against Ohio.”
- * Also, and I was wondering when something like this was going to happen. The athletic department is selling permanent seat cushions this season, $32 per seat right now and the price goes up to $36 after August 1.
- Here’s a look:
They made of vinyl and measure 17” wide, 9.5” deep and two inches high—which is a tad loftier than your run-of-the-mill seat cushion.
Purists will cringe. While they don’t have the ugly chairback, it does change the aesthetics of the stadium when the place isn’t full. I noticed this at Spartan Stadium and elsewhere – you first notice the smattering of chairbacks, then the rest of the stadium.
I definitely recommend bringing a seat cushion—it makes the game more comfortable, that extra height over the person in front of you makes a difference, and it “saves” your spot during the never ending battle to hold your butt’s turf inside the cramped rows. $32 is a tad steep.
