Current state of ticket demand
Some of this is no doubt due to the M’s colossally annoying fan un-friendly ticket pricing scheme (“Hey, let’s go see a game tonight!” “Sure, I think we’re still above water on our home equity line of credit…”) but even online, home to jerks buying up center field bleacher seats and demanding $20/stub for them, I looked around and found some good seats at 25% discounts from original, early-adopter prices for this, a weekend (though not primo) game.
Note to the person who managed to get buy that super-great value set out from under me: I hate you.
And reports are that actual on-street scalpers are taking it repeatedly in the happy sack. I’m not proud of this, but such news makes me smile because over the last few years I’ve found them increasingly unreasonable.
I wonder what I’ll see wandering down Occidental tonight.
Anyway — any USSMers in attendance, feel free to wave or wear a bag over your head (I will bet, actually, that the Safeco Field staff will stop you on the entirely made-up grounds that wearing a bag on your head is a security threat) and I’ll buy you a beer or beverage of your choice (offer limited in quantity to the amount of cash I have on hand).
