Trixadexaphobia: NYY Vs. Sox Tix On 3/13 Crazy

If you want to temp fate on Friday, March 13th and catch the Sox and Yankees at jetBlue, bring along your 401k debit card. The average ticket price for this Spring Training game is $165.18. That's for a fake game—with no relevance to anything. The cheapest seat in Fort Myers that day will be $40—the cheapest. After what will soon be the snowiest winter in Boston history, it's understandable that many would want to bask in the warmth of a ballgame—but for 165 bucks? That's around the cost of five driveway plowings, or 55 gallons of home heating oil, or one shopping trip to Whole Foods (actually this one would be a lot more—maybe Stop & Shop). Geez, games at Fenway are starting to look cheap by comparison.
