Stanford Ticket and Events Office is an Embarrassment to Stanford’s Great Women’s Basketball Program and the National Collegiate Athletic Association

Dateline: Stanford University, “Marla Maples Pavillion”,

Saturday, March 20, 2010

Iowa and the Cardinal advance to the second round despite poor management of the event due to the behavior of Stanford’s Ticket & Special Events Office.

My service-assistant dog and I were denied a seat at the first and second rounds of the Women’s NCAA Tourney hosted by Stanford University (in violation of the American with Disabilities Act enacted since 1992; coincidentally, the last time Stanford won the national championship).

I had already paid $50.00 for one ticket. I already surrendered all plastic non-alcoholic and canned beverage containers to two security check-in guards. We already passed the ticket entry gate.

Then we were informed, for the first time after three conversations over the phone with Stanford’s Ticket Office, that we could not be seated because my dog Teddy does not like to wear clothing. Go figure?

A Stanford business school degree is worth less to me than a half-roll of toilet paper. Poor management!

Good thing the team won at home.

Student-athletes and fans deserve more. I’ll never find that near “Shallow Alto, California.”
