I sold four in 2010 for $1200 a piece, I'm hoping it'll be cheaper since it's the second trip in the past few years. 2010 was the first NC for Auburn since 1957, it was a huge deal.

Yeah, it sucks. Hopefully the doc that gave me his tickets to sale last time will do it again. If I can't go, might as weel make some money from the tickets. He wanted $700 per ticket last time and I just checked, they are selling anywhere from $1000 to $1500 per ticket

Bet you didn't know this!

In the heyday of sailing ships, all war
ships and many freighters carried iron cannons. Those cannons fired round iron cannon balls. It was necessary to keep a good supply near the cannon. However, how to prevent them from rolling about the deck? The best storage method devised was a square-based pyramid with one ball on top, resting on four resting on nine, which rested on sixteen. Thus, a supply of 30 cannon balls could be stacked in a small area right next to the cannon. There was only one problem, how to prevent the bottom layer from sliding or rolling from under the others. The solution was a metal plate called a 'Monkey' with 16 round indentations. However, if this plate were made of iron, the iron balls would quickly rust to it.

The solution to the rusting problem was to make 'Brass Monkeys.' Few landlubbers realize that brass contracts much more and much faster than iron when chilled. Consequently, when the temperature dropped too far, the brass indentations would shrink so much that the iron cannonballs would come right off the monkey; Thus, it was quite literally, 'Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey.'

(All this time, you thought that was an improper expression, didn't you.)

I'm stuck working, so neither. I don't think I'll be able to get all three shifts covered.
