ATLANTA - Almost a year ago Hustonville's Jimmy Gordon knew where he was going to be when the 2004 Southeastern Conference Tournament was played.
"I was in Nashville for the NCAA South Region last year and a friend had a suite for the games," said Gordon. "I decided right then that was the only way to go and that's how I would watch the SEC Tournament in Atlanta."
He called the Georgia Dome last June and learned that a suite to accommodate 16 people would cost $5,000, or about $312 per person. He immediately took it and has been here since Thursday with friends watching Kentucky and other teams play in the SEC Tournament.
"I didn't think I would have any trouble finding enough people to go to the games," Gordon said.
Considering a ticket to each game of the SEC Tournament would cost $200, Gordon thought the added luxury of the suite would be an easy sell. Each suite has two televisions, a couch and access to a bathroom. It also comes with four parking passes to each tournament session along with four passes that allow those who already have tickets to obtain access to the suite, too.
