Every year it appears the annual campout for Big Blue Madness tickets can’t get any bigger. And every year Big Blue Nation outdoes itself.
It’s only 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the Joe Craft Center, but the place is already engulfed in a tent city.
Hundreds upon hundreds of campers have descended upon the Joe Craft Center and Memorial Coliseum lawns to get in line for the annual ticket distribution on Saturday. Though fans weren’t permitted to come on the JCC/Memorial Coliseum campus until 5 a.m. Wednesday, dozens, if not hundreds, have been camping out since Monday.
