The more I think about it, doesn't the new "Road Warrior" ticket plan seem a little ... um, uh, what's the word ... greedy?
First, I've been to every road game but one the past 16 years, and UH fans aren't being placed in what would be described as premium locations.
It would seem the goal would be to place as many of a team's fans in one area as possible. This doesn't help. And, inevitably, UH won't sell out the Road Warrior plans. What do they do with the unbought seats? Keep them empty? Doubt it.
Face it. Many of the fans attending road games live on the Mainland. And many are related to or are friends of the players.
The goal should be to get as many fans to road games as possible. A tax — and that's what it feels like when premium areas are based on a priority system — might not be the best attraction.
Am I misinformed? What do you guys think?

Hey, don't act. We've all tried to moonwalk (wearing socks on a waxed floor doesn't help), and we all think we can do that e-hee-hee falsetto imitation. So today's bar-room debate: What are your favorite Michael Jackson songs?
Here are mine:
1. I'll Be There
2. Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
3. Got To Be There. The best man at my wedding, Johnny Iwashita — that's Coach John to the Saint Francis basketball players — used to be able to sing that really testicle-crunching high note.
4. She's Out of My Life. This is supposed to be a serious song, but I crack up when I think of Eddie Murphy's rendition. ("Tito, get me a tissue.")
5. One More Chance. The one from the ABC album, not the one written by R.Kelly.
By the way, I finally did sorta moonwalk. At the San Francisco airport, I faced backward while standing on the people-mover conveyor.
