Default Parking Pass price gouging

Wow, I just saw a yellow parking pass on craigslist for $160 and a platium pass for $300....just ridiculous!

I know our yellow passes are $15. What is the face value for platium?

Default Re: Parking Pass price gouging

I have a yellow pass now for the Girls game. I am planning on using it however if someone wants to give me $150 for it I will be happy to do park and ride.

edit: actually I was joking. A board member gave me a fair deal on what I have so I would not turn around and sell it. Now if it were my pass I would have no problem doing park and ride if someone wanted to shell out crazy money.

Cool Re: Parking Pass price gouging

Wait until the year after we make the playoffs.

Right after 2-14 I rarely saw parking or season tickets drop below face.

PSL's were still 3x or 6x original purchase price.

My friends are lucky, as long as they participate in my tailgate, I'll sell for face plus a share of the parking costs.

Kinda' forcing my friends to hang out with me

Truth. I bought my PSL's halfway thru 2006 (or '07 can't remember) season and the best deal I could find was still pricey.

Glad you edited. I saw the original post and didn't like it much. Sure, I understand about losers weepers. I generally don't care if you resell but do realize that I specifically didn't list my tickets elsewhere because I figured it'd be my best chance to ensure they go to a Texans fan. So I lost a little extra money but it was worth it considering. I do not want to lose face with my seat mates by having an opposing fan in my seats. I have great seat neighbors. All I ask is that you at least keep 'em Texan if you sell. It'd be real crummy if a patty fan ended up there. Real crummy.

As for the parking pass... sell it to whomever! More power to you.

Nitro, I appreciate what you did for us and of course I would not turn around and sell your tickets. Actually I was only referring to the parking pass and I was just joking about that. We will be parking in Yellow.

I bought these tickets for 2 of my friends that wanted badly to acompany me to Houston. One is originally from Houston and is a huge Texans fan. The other is originally from Beaumont and likes both teams. Both guys are respectable and in their 50's so you don't have to worry about them embarrassing you.

Preston (Bullpen 1) was kind enough to offer me a ticket weeks ago and I am going to be with him in the Bull Pen. I thought I was going to have to drive down there alone which I don't care for doing. Now thanks to you I am bringing 2 of my close friends. We are all very excited and my friends are very aware that they are only able to go because of a generous member of Texans Talk.

hey, I'd hang out with you for tix at face value. like a dumbass I didn't go ahead and buy season tix when the boss gave me okay. now my other connect is crawfishing and I'm going to have to watch from the living room if something doesn't come up pretty quick. I do make some famous pico de gallo I could bring......... goes great with breakfast burritos, or beans, or chips......

I wouldn't even talk about your accent.
