Why the h&*^ are tickets to professional sporting events so d#*& expensive?
I've been seeing the Op-Ed piece on Channel 5 for the last few days where the guy mentions that it is cheaper to fly to Tampa and buy tickets there to watch the Red Sox play then it is to watch them play here at Fenway.
I don't know how well that holds up but by gawd if it isn't true for the Bruins! The girl is a Bruins fan and while I'm not a big fan of NHL hockey I poked around to see about tickets.
2 seats in the nose-bleed section at the TD Banknorth Garden? $176 each. (I can drop down to $69 each if I'm will to take obstructed seats in the upper deck corner!)
Just for grins I poke around and I can get 2 seats in row 1 (at the glass) on the blueline in Philly for the following weekend for $46 each. Similar seats in Buffalo are about the same price.
What the heck is it with this place? I can't even get tickets to go see the New England Revolution (Yeah, I know. "Who are they?" right! Most of New England has never even heard of them! Major League Soccer...) for $46!
