You know... thanks to a homestate team being in the World Series, the Rockies, everybody is suddenly all about baseball and the world series. It's a state fever thing. That's cool. But it's interesting these people wouldn't pay $8 to see them before but now they're willing to pay <$150.
What I really hate is the scalping and money grubbers. I had a girl in my astronomy class brag about how she got tickets and she only got 2, and then she whined about how upset she is she wasn't thinking clearly and didn't get 4 so she could sell the other 2 for a tidy profit.
That's what bugs the crap out of me. Call me a socialist... but I think it's just plain rude that she gets to buy the tickets for, say, $150 a piece, but now if someone else wants to go they have to pay whatever mark-up she desires on it.
It's a 2 way street though. Basically this kind of crap can only stop if people would stop buying the price-gouged tickets.
It's just a disgusting way of humankind.
