Aggie Trip

I got one of those e-mails from Texas A&M advertising a trip to Miami for our football game there in September. For only $1,379 per person (double occupancy), you get the following:

- Roundtrip airfare from Houston or Dallas
- Roundtrip transportation between the airport and hotel
- Accommodations for three nights at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne Resort and Spa
- Buffet breakfast daily at the hotel
- 12th Man Foundation Reception and Yell Practice
- Pregame Party and roundtrip transportation to game on Thursday
- Special excursion to see the sights and sounds of Miami on Friday
- Baggage handling, and taxes and tips on included features
- Optional, at an additional cost: Game ticket for Thursday's Texas A&M vs Miami football game.

Now, look at that last one. A ticket to the game is optional? Isn't that the point of the trip? Also, look at the 6th item. Transportation to/from the game is included, but the game ticket is not? I find that bizarre.
