    You know...the Super Bowl hasn't even been played yet and Uncle Bob is already asking for my hard earned $$$.

    The statement for my season tickets came in today...

    As expected, Yellow Lot went up 3 bucks..to $18 a game. Time to reduce the balance in my checking account... :(

    It's so high because they let people drink free(their own) beers in the parking lot. Either way, they get the drinker's money.

    Crazy isn't it? My tickets to the game are only 47 per seat per game.

    Unfortunately yes, that's what I'm saying. $430.00 for the entire season.

    Platinum is the most expensive (that I know of). But a) we have assigned parking and b) our gates open an hour earlier than the others.

    Raising ticket or parking prices in this economy is downright criminal.

    Beyond that, (and I like ya'll but come on) .... I'll just say that P.T. Barnum was right and leave it at that.
