I went on stubhub.com to see what Sox games are now up and I was seeing that there wern't much for the Sox home games.

I went to look at how many people are selling Cubs tickets and there are TONS of tickets on there for insane amounts of money. We're talking $400 for the home opener! :o:

What I got from that was Cubs fans would rather make money off their tickets than to see the games.

Just a thought.

this is the best time to make money off those fools...every scalper and thier mother knows this...it may end up being worse than the jordan era bulls. Look on ebay for white sox tickets in illinois, and EVERY listing are for cubs/sox games at wrigley. If you broadened your search beyond illinois, you get yankmee and bosox games too.....I've been contemplating selling my sox/cubs games at the cell, if only to make ungoldy sums of money off those bastards(and i can still get in even without a ticket).

Well, I despite all the Cub worship around here as much as the next guy, but the other side of the coin is that there are fans who are willing to pay $400 to go see a Cubs game. You may (legitimately) challenge their motives and their sanity, but a Cubs fan would point to that fact as evidence of the devotion and passion of Cubs fans (and not as evidence that some fans would rather make money than go to the games).

It should be noted though that Sox tickets don't go on sale to the public until this Saturday. I am not saying that you will begin to see a ton of Sox tickets out on stubhub, but this may be part of it.

numbers of Homeless people standing in those cubby lines?

I hesitated to post that bc I didn't want to seem like I was supporting those morons for selling all of their tickets.

Is that true? I can't see them turning away cold, hard cash.

I was referring to the first day of sales...the cubs stated all orders, especially for bleachers and big games, would need 2 ids/credit card......that move was to "protect" cub fans from scalpers....gues sit was to direct them to the cub's scalper...the cubs!
