I Bought Mets Tickets for the 2020 Season

I received an email from the Mets today stating that until Monday at midnight tickets can be purchased online without fees which add a substantial amount to the cost.  I jumped at the opportunity to save money so I purchased tickets for 11 games.  I could always buy tickets at the last minute for other games.  I thought about buying a 20 game package, but decided not to for 2 reasons:

  1. 20 games is a little too much with the high cost of tickets
  2. The team chooses the 20 games in each of the packages it offers.  I picked the games that I wanted to see.
It averaged to about $33/ticket for the 11 games.  I remember back in the 1960s when tickets in the entire upper deck at Shea Stadium was $1.30.  Somebody has to pay for the players' multimillion-dollar salaries.

I'm glad you saved money, Bruce.
That said, I do think you could have invested your money on more worthwhile forms of entertainment.
But - I also believe you can spend your money anyway you want, even if it results in inevitable disappointment.
