Believe it or not (and if you and I went to college together, you probably won’t believe it), but I bought two season tickets for the Monmouth University men’s basketball team. It’s all part of this weird pride that I feel about Monmouth since they built the new Multipurpose Activity Center (a.k.a. the MAC building). However, not only did I get myself some season tickets – I was so impressed walking around the MAC building earlier in the week that I purchased a membership in Monmouth University’s Blue/White Club.
The Blue/While Club is like the booster association for the Athletics department. There are a few different levels of membership in this club and after you surpass a certain level you are permitted to access something called The Varsity Club during men’s and women’s basketball games as well as during football games. The Varsity Club provides a free buffet-style meal prior to the game as well as some type of dessert during half-time and the opportunity to meet and greet the coaches at some point after the game is over. Not a bad little package for those who are interested.
There are fourteen home games for the men’s basketball team this season and my schedule looks like I can attend at least twelve of them. And since I have two tickets I’ll be looking to take along some other folks to some of these games. I’m looking forward to it, which is sort of fun!
