    My experience was with the lottery sales. Those were the reasonable prices. The resellers are selling now. Get a 2nd mortgage.

    Good friend is going to the World Series in D.C. Huge Nats fan. Been shopping for tickets. Says he thinks he will have to pay $800 to $1,000/ticket. He is trying to buy 4 tickets next to each other. He can afford it. To me, NO sporting event is worth that much to attend!!

    A Washington based baseball team hasn't been in a World Series since 1933. Every true fan of D.C. baseball wants to go. The real problem, though, is every government official and every Congressman will be "gifted" with tickets from lobbyists. It's just a bidding war with no upper limit as to what some will spend to be able to remind certain people who made it able for them to attend.
    The Nats started out 2019 with a horrendous record. Many had written them off well into the season. The past few years, their record was nothing to be proud of. Sound like a number of folks sold their season tickets for pennies on the dollar. Season ticket holders get first dibs on Series tickets. Bet some are really kicking themselves.
