WEIRD OBJECT FRIDAY

I don't know if this is as "weird" as it is outlandish.
You may have the honor of sitting in this seat for three hours for a mere $528.00 It is located in Yankee Stadium. This is Yankee Stadium's last year. The team is moving into a new facility across the street. Normally the seat would cost you only $325.00, but since it is the final season most seats sold out early this year. You have to get them at something like stubhub. My daughter and her friends went up to see a game. They wanted to be able to say they went to Yankee Stadium where so many great baseball moments happened. Lots of history, but she did say it really was falling apart and needed replacement. I am just happy she survived the trip-- she wore an Orioles cap to the game.

Baseball used to be a sport where families with average incomes could enjoy an afternoon together to watch their favorite team. It is sad to hear about how expensive it is now.

Wow! That's a lot of money to watch a game. That's weird in my opinion to spend that kind of $ for a game.
They sold the seats after tearing down Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati; they will probably do the same there. I wonder what the cost will be to own one then.

Wow, from the looks of that seat it looks like they need a new stadium. Maybe they are charging $500 dollars so they can pay for that new stadium. I've never been to a professional baseball game. From the sounds of it I may never go with those prices.

I will never complain about Camden Yard prices again. Wonder what a hotdog costs up there?

Hey, Ger- did they do that with Memorial Stadium? I don't remember...

They did sell off some seats.

Sorry, can't get worked up over the "d*** Yankees". Nah, it's cool - the house that Ruth built and all that.
Your O's cap story reminds me of chaperoning 4 marching band members (my son and three buddies) in NYC and one guy insisted on wearing a Boston Red Sox cap all day, every day (that year Boston was beating up on the Yanks, too). No incidents.
