Frustrated beyond belief…Cubs Playoff Tickets

I’ve come to a realization that like it or not, unless you are willing to sell your soul, your girlfriend (assuming she is hot enough), your firstborn, or just be FILTHY RICH, you are NOT going to be able to get tickets to a Cubs playoff game.


For instance.  I’ve been doing my thing to figure out how to get inside the stadium and have been confronted with the following solicitations.


Bleacher seats for Sunday’s Game 4. ($500 each)


Section 216 seat 46 for Sunday’s Game ($950 each)


Two tickets for Sunday’s Game ($2,500)


To make matters worse, I slept in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart last night and am typing this in the Apple Store since my plush hotel didn’t have wireless Internet.  Add in the fact that $2,500 is equal to my entire trip and my frustration is building.  


Now don’t get me wrong, I understand the history of the Cubs.  The fact that there are people in Chicago that would gladly not eat food for a month to get inside, but seriously folks, it’s just another slap in the face that maybe I should have kept my job so I could afford tickets.


Alright, enough bitching, sorry, I’ll just find a nice sports bar in the heart of the city.
