Tony Seminary is a 1996 graduate of the University of Oregon and a season ticket holder for the Ducks football team. He attended the Boise State game, and witnessed the loss to the Broncos and LeGarrette Blountís PunchGate up close and personal. After the game, Seminary wrote an email to Chip Kelly, and did what you may have dreamt of doing after traveling to watch your team put in an embarrassing performance on the road: he asked for a refund, and attached an invoice bureaucrat-style. From the original email:

I was so angry with the game (even before the post-game melee) I am sending you an invoice for my trip to Boise. The product on the field Thursday night is not something I was at all proud of, and I feel as though Iím entitled to my money back for the trip. Please see my invoice attached in this email. I will happily send along receipts if need be.

Unlike most fans, he actually wrote this up and sent it. Unlike most coaches, Chip Kelly responded with a personal check written to one Anthony Seminary.

bahahahahah that's hilarious

Chip Kelly was our (UNH) offensive coordinator a couple years ago and we used to just tool on people. It's cool to see a guy from my school making it so big but God damn did they look terrible in that game.

Chip is the man and Oregon is already looking alittle better this year. I think he'll have a long stay at Oregon

Oh, the irony....I remember going to BSU games and getting in for free at halftime when I was in high school. Yeah, they didn't win but 5-6 games each year and almost always got smoked by Montana. Yesssrrrr, those were the days.
