Just got 6 tickets in the 3rd row for 30 each. Not bad!

I love making fun of Cubs fans, but man, at least they go to their games.


What is going on??????

How available and cheap were Red Sox tickets last year when they really sucked? Apply same thing here.

The amazing thing was Boston fans showed up in September anyways....tickets were around but you had to pay face value ( which ain't cheap )

I lost my butt on some tix I had for the Red/White Sox series in September last year over Labor Day... I paid like $200 face and sold em on Ebay for $50, and that was a last minute rush... Course that jag never even paid me for them so I was out the full amount but...

All I know is season ticket holders were putting them up on Replay and they were being sold at face or more. Ortiz going for the HR record helped.

The Yankees suck, and Thursday is the 7th time they've played here in the past 3 weeks. Nothing worth seeing there.

It always cracks me up to see the swarm of people arriving in the 3rd and leaving in the 7th.

It's a shame though, because the people who do go to Comiskey know their stuff. Usually I'm surrounded by 7 year olds who can have a real baseball conversation with me. At Wrigley, earlier this year against the Reds a guy behind me, in full Cubs gear, asked "now who's this guy?" when Soriano stepped up to the plate.

sigh....Let the record show that on June 6, 2007 at 11:09 AM, the dreaded "attendance" thread has made its return to WSI.

I thought we were over the "at least Cub fan go to the games" bull**** on this site. Fenway, you've been here long enough to know a) why the Cubs always draw people (namely: bars, tourists, bars, larger fan base, bars, etc.) and b) we're more worried about winning than attendance.

EDIT: Good response from "Comiskey" that you posted. I doubt he's a Yankees fan with that name.

Ho hum.

I guess you haven't ever watched games at The Shrine when the Cardinals play there or when the Sox do and the place has half or more of the "visiting" teams fans.

For the most part, my fellow Sox fans are realistic. The Sox play in the best division in MLB. And the way the Sox are playing the Sox will probably end up in 4th place. So, making a bit of money or just plain selling your ticket(s) seems reasonable to me.

If Boston Red Sox fans choose to attend games when they're out of contention, good for them is about the best I can say.

"Strike three, ball four, walk, a run'll tie the score. Fly ball, double play, Yankees win again today. Those damn Yankees. Why can't we beat 'em?"

I think it may have to do with two under-.500 teams playing each other?

Thursday game, lost the series to a team not in our division. Nothing to celebrate. I don't want to see that lineup v. our bullpen right now, it'll just be a lot of my screaming and pulling my hair out.

If they win tonight, they split the series. But don't let that stand in the way of claiming all hope is lost.

I guess you're right. Still not gonna celebrate a split. All hope isn't lost, but the majority of it is on the DL or in the minors.

Becuase the Sox should be paying their fans to watch them play.

I say why not? I'd rather not go and plop down money that I could use toward other things like gas, bills, transportation, than watch this sorry team play.

They have a point...It's not like there's over 1000 listings that come on craigslist when you search for "Yankees tickets (http://newyork.craigslist.org/search/sss?query=Yankees%20tickets)" or anything....What? There really are? Well then...

The only reason people love going to Yankee Stadium, Fenway, and Wrigley is because everyone knows it's always a sellout. If it's always a sellout, it's always a party, no matter what. And that's more of a draw to the casual fan, or a tourist, than a winning team. The majority of people out there who call themselves Cubs/Yankees/Red Sox fans are only fans because they want to be proud of belonging to a huge loyal fanbase; it's like a domino effect. Notice how proud and arrogant Cubs fans are, and they haven't won anything, ever?! And they're most proud when they invade other stadiums in swarms. These same people would never latch onto some team that supposedly has a small fanbase, according to ESPN or any other uninformed national media.
