The Turning Stone Dome Isn't Far Off

New, 47 comments

Absolutely delightful news today out of SU Athletics.  It's Club four-four in the Carrier Dome, you guys.  Hey everybody, we're all gonna get laid!

"Club four-four debuts as an innovative partnership between Syracuse Athletics and Turning Stone Resort & Spa," said Syracuse director of athletics Dr. Daryl Gross. "The upscale, opulently designed space debuts as a Manhattan-style social meeting place for those who appreciate extraordinary atmosphere. Club four-four will inject a new form of luxury experience while viewing an Orange game or concert inside the Carrier Dome."

Opulently-designed?  La-di-frickin-da.

So, hey...have I mentioned I appreciate extraordinary atmosphere.  It's all I talk about.  "Where are we going tonight and is the atmosphere extraordinary?"  That's me talking to my wife every Friday night.  So since I am one of the designated appreciators, I can come in, right?  Don't need anything else...correct?

Fans can take advantage of a partial-season membership from January 2, 2010 through June 30, 2010, which includes the highly anticipated BIG EAST men’s and women’s basketball games, a full season of lacrosse action, and other events, at an introductory rate of $500. Corporate membership for four is $1500.     

Starting July 1, 2010, full-season memberships for football, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s lacrosse, concerts and other events are available for $1500. Corporate memberships for four are $5000. Football-only memberships are available for $500.

Ahhh...left that part out.  "For fans who appreciate extraordinary atmosphere AND have $1,500 to burn."  Got it.

Oh and then there's this.

Club four-four at the Carrier Dome is where New York’s ultra-VIPs will go to mix, mingle and cheer on the Orange.

If you ever refer to yourself as an "ultra-VIP" in my presence I will punch you in the sternum.  That's the TNIAAM Ultra-VIP guarantee.

Turns out those ads in the rafters were just Phase I of the Turning Stone/Syracuse University Plan for Central New York Domination (TSSUPCNYD). Mike Waters questioned the idea of promoting a casino inside a stadium on a college campus last week, to which DOC replied "They’re classy and professional. It’s a big property in this region, and we’re not going to ignore that they’re there."  Clearly.

I look forward to the day I can mix and mingle in Club four-four with the other ultra-VIPs as we watch the latest No. 44 run the ball for the Orange....oh....right.
