If you know what it takes to play the game, and you see the very best in
action up close, it's pretty entertaining. Me, I'm easily entertained, and
the one game I do watch is so ridiculously priced in this town that I doubt
I'll ever go. My first and last Leafs game was in 1966.
Well thats it right there Mike.
I've played all the sports, cept the ones that require snow/ice and I still
don't get it.
I'd much rather play it than watch it.
Watching sports is like watching someone eat an ice cream cone.
I prefer doing it than watching it.
My wife has been a football fan since before I knew her and I accept that.
Just as she accepts my faults. >wink<
I paid $250 CDN for a Stones concert, dead centre beside the rolled
out sub-stage. But then again, I live in a small city and we don't
normally get the big name acts so it was more of a special thing.
Apparently 90,000 turned out or almost 1/2 the city during the two
I paid $150 CDN for Grey Cup seats and I thought that was a steal
Television just isn't the same thing as a live performance!
Now, those would have to be stage tickets for that price. IE, you sit
in the stage platforms looking right on top of the stage and out onto
the core audience, that also comes with a backstage pass IIRC. Robert
Di Niro (apparently a big Stones fan) and Charlize Theron were also in
town and that's the type of ticket they had (but I bet they didn't
actually pay for them!) For what it's worth they all stayed at the
same hotel so they could have had some interesting parties going on.
Mick and the boys were in town for 4 days because of the double
concert (the only 2 show performance they gave in North America).
I paid $250 for the normally $308 tickets.
Our football championship. But I believe the top price of the tickets
were about $275 vs. the min. price for a Super Bowl ticket at $500??
Actually I'd pay more for Rush than for a Stones concert, which I'd pay
- the going rate for. Yes, that's right, you'd have to pay me the going
rate to go and see them. I'd score a profit with the Stones, and break
even with Rush.
I was listening online to these cheesy-yet-kinda-cool retro-disco-style
tunes the other day and was reminded of one from around 1998 that I
decided to see if I could find, because I recall wanting it at the time
it came out, but could not bring myself to part with the gouge.
Well, my 8-year patience was rewarded upon its find which was posted
today for your listening, er, pleasure. ;)
(Dust off your platforms and leisure suits, kids! Are ya ready?! =)
BTW, if someone has a copy of Kate Bush's 'Cloudbusting' and would like
to post or email it for me, it would be appreciated.
I have seasons tix to the NY Jets.
Regular season games are $75.00 per ticket but in the NFL the teams MAKE you
buy the pre-season too. So if you only go to the regular season games, the
ticket per game goes up to $95.00.
For the playoffs, the wild card game face value ticket is $150.00 and
divisional/championship game is $200.00 per ticket.
So if your son got them via open market or via a broker, he got a bargain.
