The City of San Diego yesterday (April 7) put out a request for proposal for companies to bid on parking services for Qualcomm Stadium. According to the request for proposal, the gross revenue from Qualcomm parking last year was $5,393,006. The Chargers accounted for most of that. They had ten events, averaging $430,000 per event. San Diego State had 6 events averaging $40,617. The Poinsettia Bowl brought in $92,303, and the Holiday Bowl $117,800. Super Cross (one event) brought in $126,530 and the Monster Truck Show (one event) brought in $164,932. Thanks to Matt Potter for sending this along.

the Monster Truck Show

LOL..that people would actually pay money top see a "Monster Truck Show" is so funny it kills me.

I know the old saying to each his own, and if I offend anyone I apologize in advance.

No car would dare run over SurfPup. He has been trained not to chase cars. Best, Don Bauder

Pray for the pup if the cops nab him or his house catches on fire. He has annoyed the police and FFs with his insistence on sane pensions. Best, Don Bauder

Well, have you noticed that Donald Trump is tied for second in one poll for Republican candidate for president? San Diego's deferred maintenance is $600 million but the establishment wants to subsidize the Chargers, at bare minimum, to the tune of $600 million? Palin may challenge Trump for president?

Trump will not run, this is being done purely for the publicity he is getting-free of charge.

He could never run the US Gov the way he runs a private business where he is the one and only "boss". He would be like Ross Perot-very smart business people but their mind set would not work in gov.

I woudl LOVE to see trump Secretary of Labor.


Don Bauder April 8, 2011 @ 9:03 p.m.

Trump Secretary of Labor? How about Colonel of the Urinal. Best, Don Bauder

What little, and by little I mean miniscule, credibility that Trump might have ever had went out the window the very moment he made the galacticly stupid move of bringing up President Obama's birth certificate again. the ONLY reason Trump is opening his yap again is for the free publicity


Don Bauder April 8, 2011 @ 9:05 p.m.

Well, he knows nothing about the Middle East, China, Japan, the Federal Reserve. The poor guy has to talk about something. Best, Don Bauder

No serious candidate would bring up the birther nonsense-that is an automatic death blow to credibilty.

The only reason trump is doing it is too create buzz for himself.

Unless you a tea party member. For some insane reason,they still seem to think that they are going to "convert" the rest of the GOP and win every election in sight.


Don Bauder April 8, 2011 @ 12:51 p.m.

And there is obviously demand for the Monster Truck Show. It would be interesting to compare Monster Truck attendance in San Diego with attendance in other cities. Best, Don Bauder

viewer = HUGE Monster Truck Show fan :)

Many years ago they had paid events for "tractor pulls" where the people would pay to watch tractors pull stuff.

I just don't get why anyone would want to see these things.

BUT, I would PAY to see this;

I always wondered what the tractors pulled at those pulls. Best, Don Bauder

The NFL has nixed that. Best, Don Bauder

Cable TV better make some moves. It is losing market share. Best, Don Bauder
