Hope no one minds, but I have to vent for a minute and this seems like as good a forum as any.
Tuesday afternoon, I got 3 tickets to last night's game and brought my sister and my dad who is handicapped and in 55 years of being a Yankee fan had never been to a playoff game. So I took one of my few vacation days left we made the 3+ hour drive from Massachusetts, and sat at the Stadium for 4 hours before they finally decided to call the game. (Not before my dad nearly got run over by 2 people who were chasing after batting practice balls, not kids either mind you, actual grown adults).
So when I call this morning to see what I can do about the tickets (My dad just isn't physically able to make 2 trips like this back to back, and I can't get 2 days off in a row). I was told by someone at the ticket office that because this is a MLB Event, and not a Yankees Game, the tickets must be used today. When I commented that its a pretty ridiculous thing to do to their fans, making them pay twice to park, spend all that money at the stadium, etc. I was told by the ticket office representative, "Yah, because its MLB's fault that it rained".
So basically I'm stuck with 3 tickets. Good seats too. 2 in Section 335 and 1 in Section 329. "Jeffrey Maier" Seats.
Just awesome. But ESPN got their prime time slot right? East Coast games definitely need to be started at 8:19 on weeknights in October?
Thanks for listening everyone.
