Right now I'm pretty happy. I'm looking forward to this semester. Hopefully I can just continue on how I finished last semester, play strong in these last three tournaments, and go from there.

I'm guessing that probably has something to do with it. But still, you're in a community with a quarter of a million people. We have 28,500 students. We run ticket promotions. It's ridiculous to have those small crowds.

I got an excuse this morning that students don't want to get up that early. That's what a father of two [Tech students] told me.

We had about 400 people here. We were very pleased. The store looked great. Customers all seemed happy and were enjoying themselves.

(Customers) all enjoyed the 20 percent discounts. They were taking advantage of these sales opportunities.
