I put this is the Talking Baseball forum because it's an article on the Fan Cost Index of attending a game.

At the risk of being accused of being flubsessed, I'll state that my favorite part of the article was this:

Chumps pay $25 for parking. Cheapskates take public transportation, which provides valuable life lessons for the children:


"Daddy, why is that man talking to himself, picking at his sores and not wearing any pants?"
"Because he roots for the Cubs, son."

This had me laughing for a little bit...

And two beers? C'mon, who drinks only two beers at a game? Especially if Jeff Weaver is pitching?

$25? From my (relatively) little experience with Wrigley the last ten or so years, you'd be lucky to find parking there for $25.
