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.
Whoa! That is pricey.
Hmmm, I spend much more than I have on DSL, but it's one of those how ya gonna keep her down on the farm things. (Dial-up is excruciating.)
Do ya get a happy ending with that?
Let me be the first to say it in 2004...
Wait 'till next year.
(Didja see the cartoon of the Red Sox Bridge in the back of the latest New Yorker?)
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...
We go and see the Reading Pa, Phillies. Good Ball, low price , great kielbasi sammiches
A minor league game in a classic old ballpark is hard to beat, farmerman!
Try going to see a canadian hockey team trying to make a go of it, competing in an overpriced american market. yeesh
Craft stuff is my weakness and cloths come in second.
Pawtucket (R.I.) Red Sox
Triple AAA, beautiful park, cheap tix!
(General admission $6. box seats $9.)
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.
Ya know Slappy, you can get tickets to watch the Lowell Spinners for:
Premium Box $7.50
Standing Room $3.50
Heck, you can buy a book of 8 Premuim tickets for $36.00.
You just need to lower yer standards a bit.
(When was the last time someone told you THAT???
I need to lower my standards....uh, never heard that.
Wait, I mean, I hear it all the time. People like, "yo slap-dog, yo' bitchez so hot, you needs to be lowerin' yo standards and what not."
They have to fund those free agent contracts somehow right?
