O's playoffs.  Game 2 of each (potential) series.

Have you already gotten your link? mine is on tuesday.

Yes.  Today at 10.  They're basing it on seniority and I've had a mini plan since '89.

$900 for Upper Box w/B Lot parking.  Oof.


Oof indeed.

Springsteen - Pit tickets

This had me tempted, until I saw the final price.

I was in that pit for the 2012 show at Nat's park.  I feel like both pit tickets then were cheaper than one pit ticket for this weeks show.  I still feel like if you got the cash, go to this.  I just don't have the cash.

I realize most people take the metro to Nationals Stadium, but I cannot believe they can get away with charging FIFTY DOLLARS for parking. Just insane.

so how much are pit tickets??


Springsteen seems to have gone like everybody else.. he used to keep prices low but no longer...

I liked seeing Bruce last time.. but its just not my thing

Probably the most memorable part of show was that I ended up sitting next to David Corn on the metro ride home and talking a bit about the election.. this was like 2-3 days before Corn broke the video of Romney talking about the 47% freeloaders/victims at a fundraiser...  I am guessing he did not know about the video at the time...I can't recall anything specific we talked about.. I think that video kind of finished Romney off....

That was the most memorable part of the evening for me...although Springsteen's performance was an exercise in giving 110% like none I have ever seen...

$189 a piece (when all is said and done).

well.. he'll give you your money's worth.. no doubt about that...


I dont' know what to say anymore about ticket prices...they seem astronomical... I'm glad I saw as many shows as I did the past 20+ years...glad I used to have some connections too....

Agree, ticket prices are high, but he is the one artist I see as many times as possible (prob around 70 times since 1980).  $40 in service charges is bullshit though.

I heard him playing in the distance at a Bonnaroo... I had no desire to go check him out.  I do not know who I picked instead, but I am sure it was the right decision. 

One of the absolute worst musical moments that I ever experienced was earlier in that fest - Bruce joining Phish on one of the two nights and they played together for a half hour; a half hour of Bruce stumbling all over Trey, and clashing guitar solos.  It was bad.  Phish were great the rest of that set and their other set, I should add. 

I would not go see him for free and some people shell out 100s of bucks...

I cant think of a single Bruce song that I have ever heard and liked.
