I realize they reserve the right to ask for my ticket at any time, but seriously? GMAB. Stop harassing me. I've been a season ticket holder for nine years.
Some things never change- in 1987- a buddy and I went to the last game of the season- mostly to see what was Reggie Jackson's last game of his career.

In the 7th inning- we wandered to some seats near Nancy Faust (after getting our picture taken with her)- and had an usher check our tickets and ask us to move- 9 outs left in the last game of the season- a "crowd" of about 17,000- 26 years later- nothing has changed.

My complaint today is based on a footnote in today's Trib coverage of yesterday's rain delay- saying that fans with tickets for yesterday's game can exchange for a game in April, 2014 (good), but cannot exchange for Opening Day (reasonable) OR the Red Sox series (****ing ridiculous!). In what universe do the Sox expect such high demand for an April series with the Red Sox coming off a 100 loss season? Is it really worth it to make this exception? Are they that desperate for another 40-50 ticket sales in April- to even do this?

Just pathetic.

Hell- ANYONE who buys a ticket to ANY game in September to watch this mess- should get 2 free tickets to an April 2014 game- I have a feeling- plenty of seats will be available.

I was at game 1 of a day/night DH up in the stadium club. Right after the first game ended (the makeup game), they were kicking people out to get ready for "the next crowd". Well that's fine and dandy, but the gates didn't open for that game for another hour and a half, and there were 5 people they had to "clear out". The bartender asked us if we wanted another round, then when we ordered one she said "oh we're closed", and a waitress chimed in that "we must have been on the elevator when we called last call". Um, I was sitting there the whole time thank you very much. Don't ask me if I want to keep my tab open then tell me I missed last call when I order a drink. I understand rules are rules, but don't act like everyone that goes up there is an idiot.
