opening day tickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I’m slogging through email at work, when an email lands in my inbox from one of the various “benefits” offered to us. I say “benefits” because up until now, I have found the application of that term to be dubious at best.

Until just now.

“Working Advantage has tickets for exciting Mets games this season, including Opening Day on April 9! Be there at Shea Stadium in Flushing, NY to cheer for the Mets as they battle for this year’s championship.”


OPENING DAY?!

So I click and dial TBF at the same moment. I read him the email.
“‘Upper Level Seats, Sections 44 or 46 available for $29.00 per ticket.'”
TBF: “That’s WAY out there.”
“I know.”
“Forget about pictures.”
“I know.”
“Forget about seeing the Diamondvision.”
“I know.”
“Do we even know what row?”
“‘ The general seating section listed above is guaranteed; however, specific rows and seats cannot be requested or guaranteed. You will be assigned the best available seats, within our reserved block, based on the date and time of your order.'”
“Arghhh.”
“I know. But it’s face value – okay a little more.”
I try mets.com in case they suddenly made seats available and didn’t tell anyone, and open up StubHub in another window. The StubHub ticket quantity has taken a nosedive from 1600 seats down to 900 seats. In the meantime, TBF is looking to see what’s available in Seven-packs – and that’s even worse seating locations than what we’re currently being offered.

I bought the tickets.

I am, however, pissed at the Mets that they didn’t make these seats available to the general public, or to account holders. And I should be principled enough to not buy these, given as much as I’ve bitched about things on here.

But I’m not that principled and I want to go to Opening Day. I suck.
