    “On the spot: Riley Lane, Media arts junior”

    Are you going to Arizona’s bowl game, the Holiday Bowl?

    I am not, no.

    Oh come on now, what gives, man?

    I am working on the 31st so I wouldn’t be able make it back from San Diego, so …

    What is your job exactly?

    I just work banquets over at Hotel Congress.

    Is it really worth keeping?

    (Laughs) For the Holiday Bowl probably (pauses) probably not, no.

    So then what’s really stopping you from going?

    Uh (pauses) nothing actually, I guess.

    Well now, is this changing up your thought process a little bit?

    Yeah. I’ve just got to find a ride. I’ve hitchhiked to Coronado (California) before. That’s pretty much the same distance.

    How long did it take to get out there when you did that?

    Uh, about a day and a half.

    So it looks like you have a couple of more weeks at your job and then you can quit on the 28th and make it out there I guess?

    The 28th, yeah. I could make it out there on time.

    I heard tickets are around 80 bucks or something with all the fees, and you can’t pick tickets up at will call. Does that change things for you?

    Not at all. Money is not a problem for the ‘Cats.

    So if you are a little short on cash, what measures would you be willing to take to be able to go and see the game?

    (Laughs) Oh, that’s a good question. Uh (pauses, laughs) does selling your body count?

    (Laughs) Well dude, I guess that’s always one option.

    Well, that would obviously be the first option. If not, then blood and semen probably.

    (Laughs) Oh man. What’s your price range with all of that?

    Whatever they’ll give me. (Laughs)
