Last Thursday I was diligently sitting at work, sifting through client intake files waiting for that digital clock to strike 10:00am so I may try to purchase some Boston Bruins tickets.
Now for those who are not in the know, a group of my friends and I have a tradition where we have been to the Bruins home opener since about 2002. Every chance we got, we made it to that wonderful home opener two weeks after the season started because it was officially the beginning of the Bruins season. It didn't matter if they went 0-for on the road trip because now they're home and they will rectify all the mistakes made on said trip.
This year, although the group would probably be smaller in size, was to be no different...no different until after 2 hours of trying, I realized I wasn't getting tickets. Sadly, my friend Capps was the same way.
So we tried StubHub. We looked at Balcony, row 14...$90 a ticket. WHAT!? $90 bucks a ticket, for the Balcony!?
Well, "I'll give it a few days"
I told myself and here we are, a few days later looking at ticketmaster for tickets. Oh wait, it found some!
AT $272 A TICKET!!
Many Bruins fans have complained of a substantial increase in ticket prices, something that DID
happen even when the team blew.
Seriously though, $272 a ticket is preposterous to the point where I have to use the term preposterous!
