Well, we weren't gonna go because it would be too expensive... Then my brother called (a fellow UofI grad that recently moved to California) to talk about the Illini. I mentioned we weren't going, but could order two tickets with first priority because we have season tickets. He got all excited that we could get tickets for him and his wife. So I ordered our max allotment of 2. Then I'm talking to my brother-in-law, and he says he'd give me a free flight voucher he has. Then my sister calls and says she'd pitch in... etc...
Now we need two more tickets.
