re: College student budget hotels in Omaha - omaha4LSU on 6/18/17 at 7:59 pm
There are some more economical hotels in Bellevue (suburb to the south). Look at the Microtel or Holiday Inn Express. I would NOT stay in the hotels on Fort Crook Rd, stay on Hwy 370 (near the Microtel, there's also a Hampton and an extended stay of some sort), or the Holiday Inn is by Walmart on a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Tailgating at CWS - omaha4LSU on 6/12/13 at 5:19 pm
Speaking as someone from Omaha, there isn't NEARLY as much tailgating as there was at Rosenblatt. There are a few isolated empty lots, not even sure how you go about reserving those. There are a few hardy people trying to do it in the parking lots, but you have to look hard to find a tree. With hot...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Also, there is horse racing simulcast at Horseman's Park (69th and Q St), there are casinos just across the river in Co...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Question for LSU fans about Omaha - omaha4LSU on 6/11/13 at 2:41 pm
I live in Omaha. The new stadium is downtown so you usually have to park in lots, some of the Creighton University lots are available as are other business lots. There is some street parking but not a lot. The bulk of the fans from out of town do stay in the hotels that are adjacent, no parking w...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Ticket question for those that have been to Omaha - omaha4LSU on 6/11/13 at 2:34 pm
I live in Omaha. Yes, there are almost always tickets available outside the stadium, prices can vary a lot. The GA tickets don't guarantee you entry, just if you are the first however many in line, and those GA seats are all in the outfield in the direct sun. If it's like previous years, there will...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Omaha: "I miss LSU" - omaha4LSU on 6/30/11 at 2:15 pm
I also wanted to say that yes, Omaha misses LSU. Yes, partly because you are fun. But mostly because your teams are good and your fans treat our city like a good guest should, with respect and courtesy. That is NOT true of all schools, I can attest to that. It is so easy to get behind LSU when we...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I live in Omaha. I went to the game Sunday afternoon. On the plus side, parking is pretty decent, access is pretty easy if you don't mind walking. Creighton University has some student lots where you can park for $5-10, maybe 6-12 blocks away from the stadium. No tailgating though. I hear there ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

re: How hard was it to get tickets at Omaha? - omaha4LSU on 6/28/09 at 11:58 am
As teams get eliminated, more tickets flood the market (or maybe there is just less demand). Tickets to the early games will be less plentiful, and my observation was that this year, the brokers were significantly more expensive than last year. With next year being Rosenblatt's last, would anticip...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I think we should have called the NCAA's bluff. I don't think they'd have moved the CWS. There was another option to renovate Rosenblatt (I think the big deals are more restrooms, real bullpens, more room in the concourse...), and it would have been much cheaper.
