    I’ve been mad at myself for years for not seeing Jimmy years ago when they were here with Green Day. If I don’t win these tickets, I’ll probably be mad at myself for years to come.

    I’d like to win because I once saw Jim Adkins from Jimmy Eat World at the mall shopping with his family, so he needs to reclaim his rockstar persona in my headspace.

    OH GAWD, I would just cry if I won these!

    Please let me have middle school flash backs that make me reminisce about every adolescent crush I ever had.

  11. jason July 8, 2013 at 10:33 pm #

    Been waiting 15 years to see em, missed them 3 times in 3 different cities, usually by about 3 days. This is not an exaggeration.

    So glad they’re doing well

    Well I like people named Jimmy, I love to Eat and tolerate the World. Why wouldn’t I want to attend an event that combined all three into one giant ball of sweet musical goodness? I have enjoyed Jimmy Eat World for years and look forward to seeing them live.

    Sounds like a good time.

  31. Audrey July 12, 2013 at 9:35 am #

    it just takes some time to finally see one of those bands that shaped your youth. i’d be like a little girl in the middle of the crowd if they played those old hits. it would be the ride of a lifetime. everything, EVERYTHING would cease to matter during this show, which is just fine. and after…everything will be alright.

  32. Ryan July 12, 2013 at 9:39 am #

    hear you me, i’d love to attend. even if ‘sweetness’ was ruined by NHL 2003.

  33. Mary July 12, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

    Getting to go see Jimmy Eat World would make my year! I was pretty into them during my “formative” years.. and I totally want to jump around to Bleed American and scream my lungs out. Please help facilitate my need to scream/jump though my nostalgia!

  34. Laura Riggs July 13, 2013 at 8:52 am #

    I want to win because I love Jimmy Eat World and I want to take my husband on a date!

  35. Brando Triglia July 13, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

    I’be been listening to them for almost 12+ years. It’s nostalgic for me. Night drive, get it faster,Polaris & softer

  36. David July 13, 2013 at 9:35 pm #

    I would love to see them – this will be a great show, and perfect to take a date to! Please pic me!!!

  37. kyler July 14, 2013 at 1:47 am #

  38. Jennifer Miller July 14, 2013 at 3:47 am #

    I would like to attend this music festival because I am undergoing cancer treatment and nevedr seem to be able to go out and do anything fun anymore. I would buy tickets, but I lost my job due to the sick days I had to take off from the radiation treatment. Hope my name is drawn!!!

    My best friend Kari and I met when we were 16 years old when Jimmyeatworld played the crystal ballroom for 94.7’s december to remember In ’04. It was my first concert my mom let me go to (other than Aaron carter at the fair down the street) and I was small and inexperienced. I somehow made it onto the barricade and Kari was hanging on right next to me. We clung to the barricade and I started singing blink-182 songs to pass the time before the show started. She said she loved Blink and joined right in. (We were 16, yeah annoying haha) she asked if I had a MySpace and and LJ and of course i did. The rest is history.
    Kari just turned 25, my 25th is next month. We both work and take care of little ones and have gotten so busy that even though I finally moved up to Portland from Salem 2 years ago, we see each other less and less. Living up here is expensive, and I still haven’t gotten the chance to get Kari a proper gift. If I won the tickets, my babe said he’d cover things at home and I’d take her to the show and even if its just for one night we’ll sing along to the tunes we grew up listening to from our older siblings and relive our memories again.

    I still have my ticket stub from that JEW show!
