@Kcmatt7 We could debate this for a while ( you’d win because you’re smarter than I am ) but, the bottom line is I think we’re both agreeing that pro sports are becoming less and less important to us.
I had to laugh about the Royals comment though - last year was the first Royals game I’d been to in …20 or so years. Again, four of us - we paid something like $38 apiece for tickets. For some reason, the angelic parking attendant just waved us through so we didn’t have to pay the $20 or $30 parking fee. We bought a couple of programs, a couple of pops, couple of beers. I don’t remember the prices, but they were exorbitant.
So, while we’re waiting to get into the stadium, people are coming up and buying tickets at the gate for $8. If i ever go to another game, that’s how I’ll do it.
