Boston Red $ox

I just ordered a couple red sox tickets, for the second home game of the season(I think it's Pedro, it's sat. night, and it'll be crazy there).

However, the ticket prices have gotten insane. I got infield box seats, which are in between the grandstands/lower infield box....for the tune of $70 a pop. $70!!! These are just mediocre seats...not the worst, but far from the best.

Grand-bleeds, which are tucked up back under the roof, are now $44.

I know it's all supply/demand, and the sox will have no problem filling the seats, but compared to most other parks...well, they're the most expensive ballpark to see a game at, last I read.

What's the point of this thread? Uh....nothing. Just wanted to rant at how expensive the love of my life is now. Ok, then...what will you spend too much money on? Something you know is ridiculous, but you do it anyway? For me it's usually going to bars and restaurants...and now the red sox.

Let me be the first to say it in 2004...

Wait 'till next year.

My splurge of the new year will be a trip to Atlanta in the spring to watch the Braves. Fortunately, the tickets won't cost nearly what they do at Fenway. Travel expenses will make up for it, though...

A minor league game in a classic old ballpark is hard to beat, farmerman!

I went to El Paso, TX last summer to see my friend play in a few games(AA). Besides the free tickets, best part was 32 oz draft beers for only about $4. Good times.
