That's awesome. So that will ensure that once again when I go to a game that I'm stuck around a bunch of posers that won't even follow the game but think they're cool for being there because they spent so much money on ebay for tickets.
This is such garbage. Its times like this that I wish I rooted for a team that no one gave a crap about.
Here's to Wrigley being bulldozed someday!
I'll look past that bulldozer comment, cause I certainly hope you don't mean it.
The Tribune treats the Cubs like a business, only worried about the bottom line and not the product on the field. They hold back a bunch of tickets to give to their own brokers/scalpers to sell at whatever price they can get.
Why shouldn't I make some money off of this too? I've certainly paid my dues over the decades I've been going to Wrigley.
Honestly I'm not upset at you for making an extra buck. Hell, I got in at 10:04am on friday and for a second I seriously thought about just getting 6 tix for the White Sox and doing the same thing. I then also thought about the headache of trying to explain it to my wife when I told her 10 minutes before I'd only be spending $60 tops.
What pisses me off are the jackasses that are actually paying 3 to 4 times the face value for a Cubs/Reds weekend game in the bleachers or something like that. These buttholes sit in the stands and drink beer, and could care less about the Cubs. Last year I seriously was around a bunch of people that were more concerned with getting crocked and just hanging out than cheering and following the game. Its been a good two years since I've seen a successful "Right Field Sucks-Left Field Sucks!" chant. If you start one now, most give you a blank stare and have no idea what you are doing. Hell they keep the opponents home run balls! (Note: If you're a kid, I understand keeping them, but if you're a 40-year old and you're not a regular ballhawk, do the right thing.)
Seriously these people need to go away.
And no I don't seriously want Wrigley bulldozed, but there are days I wish they played in a bigger, newer stadium.
