Check out what $2,500 will get you this season at Kansas football games:
How much would you pay to flop down in a cushy leather recliner behind the end zone at KU’s Memorial Stadium?
What if they threw in free food and drinks, along with flat-screen TVs to watch the replays?
You could recreate most of this experience in the comfort of your own home a helluva lot cheaper. Well, not this, I suppose.
… The new seats will be 6 feet off the ground and 10 yards behind the end zone. Close enough for a long pass to land in a fan’s lap.
“It’s up close and personal,” Marchiony said. “I think that adds to the excitement.”
That’s quite a bit of money for what’s less than the greatest vantage point. And if you want to keep the chair after the season, that costs extra. Whatever – it looks like it’s working. 50 of the 56 seats have already been sold for this season.

One response to “Yeah, but where’s the bathroom?”
Doesn’t this take the crowd out of the game to a certain extent? The endzones are typically the rowdiest spots in the stadium. Seems like a retarded idea to me, but whatever.
