Not going to the Final Four but wanted ask if you had that space during Katrina. The things I read about that place as shelter during the hurricane were incredible.

Many of the sports writers are picking Kentucky. The All-American freshman, Davis, is great to watch play. I'll watch this weekend but will tune out ofr the Final, since it is scheduled for next month. April madness, I don't think so.

I sure wish I could find tickets at a REASONABLE price....we've got a group that would go if it wast $2000 per head minimum. It's just gonna be a bucket list item that will have to wait...

The amazing thing is that the SuperDome can and has seated over 85,000 people. It officially held 87,500 concert goers for the 1981 Rolling Stones tour but the real number was estimated at over 90,000 people...they stopped counting at the maximum occupancy level.

That said the current NCAA seating arrangement requirement has a capacity of about half of that number. It makes you wonder why they intentionally limit the number of seats and hence tickets.
