    You follow this closely, is 25k the current estimate of capacity for the World Champs? And I was thinking that the better seats would be more than 100 per day and the worst seats around 50ish.

    Hard to say...since there is no info....I think the tickets will be considerably more than the Trials and the cheapest reserved seats were $680...I'm guessing at least $1000 for the cheapest seats..

    As for the temporary seats which could be as high as the Tower...I wouldn't be surprised at $70...its an event on such a different level from anything else...

    I am wondering when the temporary seats will actually be in place? At this point it seems like they might start selling tickets a year out and not actually have all the temporary seats built.

    You know the bleachers they used for the reviewing stand during the parade scene at the end of Animal House? That's them. They're pulling them out of storage and repairing them for the WC.

    $80M to host an entire world championships in Oregon, but it's going to cost $100M just for the Olympic marathon in Japan?

    I had two tix to Edmonton, '01, and, to this day, regretted selling them! And I was in Paris during the first two days of '03. But didn't go! I have to find a way to Eugene.
