What is it with the Padres and their tickets?

I love the city of San Diego.
I wouldn’t mind seeing the Padres eventually win it all.
And I LOVE Petco Park.

Got all of that out of the way.

Seriously, there is something screwed up about how they deal with tickets there.

A few years ago I WANTED to spend money at Petco Park and instead I got to use the park for free. And then they wondered why they didn’t have enough money to sign Adrian Gonzalez.

Well today I was checking my Facebook account and I saw this ad plastered on the side bar.

Um… that game was played yesterday.
It is April 6.
I guess I could get my Opening Day tickets, hop in the DeLorean, rev it up to 88 miles per hour and hope the Flux Capacitor can generate 1.21 gigawatts and we go back in time to yesterday’s game.

Yes yes I know. This is probably some outlet called Atlas Tickets and they haven’t taken the ad down yet.

It just is strange that it keeps coming up for the Padres… a team that plays in a great ballpark in the heart of a fabulous downtown and can’t sell tickets, even when the team is good.

I wonder if I am going to get an ad to buy tickets for the 1984 World Series.

Rays fans got their money’s worth

Free tickets!
It turns out Rays fans aren’t bad fans… they are just bargain hunters.

Try that out in Boston or New York or Chicago or St. Louis… free tickets for a potential World Series team.

20,000 of them.

Actually Oakland and Pittsburgh should try that out.
Hell, San Diego should have over Labor Day. They gave ONE free ticket to me. What’s another 19,999 between friends?

The Rays offense didn’t show up. Ah well… what do you expect for nothing?
