Armed Forces Bowl

  1. Pretty excited about going this year. Mrs Pharm and I and possibly Father of Pharm if he'll relent on his ban of all things UH-football which began in the John Jenkins era and hiring issues haven't got any better since then. UH may get the ball for less than 8 minutes total in this game which will make it even more fun to watch Tapefingers hang around with nothing to do (if he isn't in Tallahassee by then). Even if Ed Oliver was healthy enough to play he'd have to be insane to subject himself to Army's blocking schemes.

    Just saw that once again the bowl is up against the UIL State Championship games in Jerry's World. Hopefully there will be solid fan support at ACS.
     
  2. Lockheed sells tickets to employee for $5 each, and give veterans two free tickets each....the game is typically well attended. We go every single year regardless who is playing and it's always a great time.

  3. Vets get up to 4 free tix, at a processing cost of $2.50 each. I've gone for the past 4 years or so and am going again this year.
     
  4. Probably will go and take one or both daughters since oldest is most likely head to UH next Fall.
     
  5. How do you get those? My Dad’s a Vietnam Vet
     
  6. I'll buy him some seats. PM me.

    Once he gets in the "pipeline", he'll get emails for each bowl game moving forward. I was notified about this year's game probably back in August or September. It's a helluva great thing for vets and it's especially awesome for locals! Last year's game was pretty dang good, high scoring and close. Got to see Goff play in 2015.

    This year's general admission seats are 300 level and up on the west side and both end zones.

  9. For everyone else, general admission tickets for this game are only $30. That's a great deal for a local bowl game and if you're a football junkie. You can upgrade to Champions Club (our current club section) that includes a food buffet, free beer, and a cash bar, for $125. There's also a Friends & Family 4-pack that includes 4 GA tix, 4 hot dogs, 4 bags of chips, and 4 sodas for $99.

  10. This bowl seems to have it figured out that tickets don’t have to be the price of the Super Bowl to sit in crappy seats
     
  11. I'd also add that the pregame festivities are always on point too. Go early and see the sights!
     
  12. What is the parking situation for this game? Would love to tailgate in lot 6 if possible.
     
  13. I'm not really sure how that works. First game I was assigned to the lot by sorority row. Last game I went to I was assigned to the south garage. I have a spot at Alice Carlson this year and it also covers the bowl game, so I'll be tailgating over there.
