So I bought this package.
You may recall that I wrote about how I didn’t like the 2014 ticket plans and how the Mets may have lost a customer.
At first glance none of the plans worked for me. The Saturday plans had some dates that don’t work because I travel and the kids play soccer in September. The pick-your-own doesn’t offer the Promenade for some reason I still don’t get.
I had moved on a little. I mentioned to Junior we might not get tickets and he gave me a “whaddaya mean???” face. He too quickly moved on but it registered with me that he likes going to games with dad.
Concurrently my new ticket rep, who I mentioned seemed nice, and I kept emailing. He let me know I could swap some games which I hadn’t realized.
That allows me to dump the one or maybe two games I know I can’t make and swap them earlier in the summer (before the annual August death march to September 30th).
I was able to get “my seats”, Opening Day and a bunch of Saturdays. My ticket p, whose job it is to get me to buy tickets, pointed out that this what I wanted anyway, no?
He was right and for like $600 after bullshit fees and nonsense I re-upped.
I’m not saying you should buy tickets or not. I don’t care. I continue to have low expectations for 2014.
For me, I get another season of memories with my kid.
I also do this blog, which brings in not-quite but about $600 a month in revenue. The blog needs content. The more involved I am with the team the better the blog is and the easier it is to do. So in that way this is a business expense.
You can agree, disagree, call me flip-flipper or stupid. It’s been a slow month so I thought I’d share my experience and decision making process.
