Wow, after reading all these posts, I'm thinking I got a good deal for the $210 I spent on three seats + parking to last summers Final Fantasyistant Worlds concert here in Seattle. Really the most I've ever paid for tickets.
lucky, I wanted to see that so badly

It was so great! I wouldn't even have known about there hadn't been a flier in the Sakuracon goodie bag. I owed a couple of friends Christmas presents, so I treated them.

Try doing a search on Youtube. apparently a lot of people made use of their cel phone cameras.

But you were in the stadium.

I was able to go to the first playoff game in Coors Field in 95. Last row of the bleachers, but with the airfare they probably ran about $300 each.
Yep! The seats were basically worse than the Rockpile.
The what?

As for cold weather: Giants fans will probably have something to say about that as well, at least those who remember the "Stick"...

As my late father in law used to say, "Never ask a man the price of his mistress."
I want to know if you've ever used this one to his daughter when she's noticed your credit card bill...

Do you really think she sees the credit card bill?

It's all paperless and autopaid from my business account.

I'm going to remember it. If I ever get to use it in the right context, it will be glorious.
How about the next time someone comments about your latest bespoke suit? Adjust your tie and issue the line.

My father in law used it in the context of his "toys" - the 30'3" sailboat (technically a yacht), the 69 Mustang, and of course the 34 Ford.

The Rockpile - the Center Field bleachers.

Has a game in San Francisco ever had snow? Frost? Below freezing temperatures? I didn't think so.

Re: Expensive tickets

My mom just told me that our Wicked tickets are orchestra seats. I can't believe she got those for less than $150. Turns out they were just over $100.

That's so awesome! I wish I could go see it again, but that's just over-indulgent under current circumstances.
