NEW Way of life?

That's because the bleachers are ridiculously over-priced

And the Cubs have struggled.

I think we are the last fanbase who should be talking about ticket sales.

I think it's because that's the argument Cubs fans always turn to when "discussing" Cubs vs. Sox.

Does that say Carlos Zambrano? What the ****? I wouldn't be surprised if a few of those wound up on the field.

Just getting warmed up for his next start at Wrigley. I hope he struts to the mound like that before the start of the 1st.

:shrug:sox tix are the only ones selling at the primary market(box office) AND secondary market. cubs are struggling to compete with the massive ammount of inventory the scalpers have. an inventory scalpers are trying to liquidate.

Very true. You can walk up to those dudes on Addison standing in front of their resale shops on gameday now and buy great seats below face.

Plus, don't the Cubs have their own secondary market (read: scalping) company? They hold a bunch of tickets back at the beginning of the season and try and sell them for more than "face value".

That company might have dumped their tickets back into the general box office stash...hence the 1/2 price tickets.

Is it really that big of an issue up there?? I seriously have never heard people through attendance in other teams' faces. That doesn't do anything except help the ownership. Like I said, I'm there to watch the game no matter if it's empty or full. I just want a good product on the field.

g0g0, you must be the only Cubs fan in the world that doesn't hoist the attendance trophy over your head every chance you get when conversing with a Sox fan.

I guess I just don't see the point in it. The Sox don't bother me though. The only way you guys mean anything to me is if we were to meet in the WS. The stupid BP Cup is a joke. The Cards on the other hand...:mad:
