Want to get to Lawrence for a football game, but don't want to spend any of your hard-earned money on tickets (or parking)?  (I completely understand.)  My friends, you clicked on the right link.

It's a simple essay contest.  In the comments below, simply submit your "KU fandom story," a story that proves you are a great KU fan (preferably a football story).  Stories like "I once slept outside Memorial Stadium in November to get a front row seat" or "I tailgate every home game and it is so awesome here's how we do it" or "I stayed for the entire game when we lost to (fill in the blank)" or whatever your best personal story might be.  Alternatively, tell us what you would do if these tickets were bestowed upon you - how you'll tailgate all day or whatever.

The winner will be selected on August 15, so you have ONE WEEK to submit your fandom story.  Winner will be selected by a panel of RCT contributors and will be contacted via email.  So if you enter the contest, be sure your email address is on your profile.

Once again, just so we're all on the same page, this is for one pair of tickets (two tickets) and a parking pass to the home opener on Saturday, Sept 6, 2014, at 6 PM in KU's Memorial Stadium vs. Southeast Missouri State (airfare and hotel accommodations not provided - sorry, fizz).

Let's hear it!  What makes YOU the best KU fan?
