I don't usually ask for help but I'm willing to beg to get this done.
We had 5000 unsold tickets Monday morning and I need every one of you to help in getting this stadium sold out this week,
I want to see Doak packed for Bobby Bowden.
I want to see Doak packed for this 2013 football team who just played in front of 83,428 at Clemson.
We owe it to them all to make the extra effort to get to the stadium and to show them our appreciation. We owe it to them to make the extra effort to invite everyone and anyone who has ever cared about Coach Bowden or Florida State.
Here's some fact to share with your friends:
1.) The Friday Night event with Bobby and Friends starts at 7 pm at the Civic Center and will be a 90-minute dance down memory lane with Charlie Barnes, Bobby Bowden, highlight videos and the Marching Chiefs. $30 general admission, $20 for Booster members. Visit www.seminoles.com to order tickets. If you grew up with Bobby, you won't want to miss this. If you didn't grow up with Bobby, you will want to experience it.
2.) The Saturday Bowden recognition will begin 22 minutes before kickoff so be sure to be in your seats by 3 pm. More than 400 of Bobby's former players will line the field for his entrance. Bowden will say a few words and then plant the spear. There will be numerous highlights during the game and the Marching Chiefs will perform a halftime salute to Bobby. Tickets to the game are $35 for youth; $55 for adults. Visit www.seminoles.com
It's a rare day when you can celebrate the past, present and future all at the same time. This weekend is that solar eclipse where we honor the Dynasty of the Bowden Era and celebrate what might well be the beginning of another Dynasty with our present ball club.
Hope you will make every effort to pack Doak Campbell and treat yourself to an important part of FSU history.
