In The Midst of Positive Feelings, The Cubs Still Manage To Frustrate
So I received an e-mail informing me that I was not fortunate enough to be selected to purchase tickets through the Cubs. Balls.
However--even though playoff tickets have not been put up for sale yet--the same said e-mail informed me that I can purchase tickets on StubHub. For just $400 a ticket, I can sit in the right field Bleachers!
You know, I'm all for the free market. I think the lottery system is probably fair. But the double-shot of finding out I will not be able to buy tickets when they go on sale, but can buy them for, I'm guessing, 7 times the face value...well, it's enough to put me in a pretty bad mood.
Did anyone get *good* news through their e-mail?
