42,000

The UFC has figured out how many tickets they’re putting on sale for their Toronto Skydome event: 42,000. You may remember that the stadium can hold up to 69,000 people, but the UFC wanted to ‘maintain the integrity of the live show.’ If they were really serious about that, they’d hire people down in the floor areas to smack idiots who stand up and ruin everyone’s view.

Speaking of floor areas, tickets start at 800 bucks for seats down there while nosebleeds are only 50 bucks. I’m quite excited to experience a show from the worst seats possible, so now I just have to hope that Fight Club members don’t buy up all the tickets for resale like they always do. Scalping bastards.

    I think $50 is pretty awesome to get your foot in the door. Too bad it will be like watching this: http://www.japanesebugfights.com/ FROM A ROOFTOP!!

    I guess you’re pretty much paying 50 bucks to watch the thing on whatever jumbotron they bring in, but i’d go just to say that i was there ya know?

    Suffice to say I’ll be in the $50 seats with the rest of the proles.

    Might be a little late to get a passport, man, but it’s worth a shot. Toronto’s a fucking cool city, lots of good pubs and relatively few jerks in comparison to say, New York or Philly. Don’t go to Pizza Pizza, though.

    i just found indiana is close to canada. turns out im only a 6 hour drive away from toronto. it’d basically be like going to the derby in louisville (except with less drunk people) i might head out there if i can convince a buddy or two to make the trip (and get a fucking passport)

  • glassjawsh says:

    the only time i went to canada was in 2003 and 2004 before i was 21 and you didn;t need a passport. so ive no idea how long it would take to get one

  • scissors61 says:

    As I recall it took about 4 months to get mine, but that was back in ’02. Could take longer now, could take less time.

    I know you can pay more to get it processed faster if you have to.

    So I assume this is an open air stadium(?) Better hope it doesn’t rain.

    You could spend $800 and still be doing this, though. You’re paying for the environment unless you go crazy and get really, really close to the cage.

    sexy story time: when i was a dumb 19 year old, a couple of buddies and i went to windsor because you could get into bars. after about 6 hours and a 100 dollars at the local watering hole, i came back to the hotel and passed out in the bathroom. (with my pants around my ankles and vomit in my hair). when i woke up (at about 10 in the morning) i discovered that my friend (also named josh) was laying naked in bed with not only two naked women (one was cute at least) but also an elvis impersonator that was completely spray painted gold and who, by the grace of God, still had his pants on.

    I grabbed my shit, grabbed josh, paid for my room and got the fuck out of canada and haven;t been back since

  • frickshun says:

    Jawsh–>I still regret that night w/you, the other Josh & Elvis……

  • CAP says:

    Wow. I’d be a little worried about waking up with my pants around my ankles. Of course Elvis had his pants on…he was done with you! Canada sounds like Vegas!

  • glassjawsh says:

    @ frick – HAHA!
    @ CAP – it was actually more fun than ive ever had in vegas

  • FiveBoltMain says:

    It only takes about 4 weeks to get a passport. No need to pay to get it “rushed” to you.

    “So I assume this is an open air stadium(?) Better hope it doesn’t rain.”

    bwahahahahahaha….no.

    The SkyDome (fuck you, Rogers!) has a retractable roof.

    “Canada sounds like Vegas!”

    It was Windsor. Windsor is a strange, craphole of a town.

    Montreal can be kinda Vegasy on the right weekend if you have enough money
