As Jeter Gets Closer, Ticket Prices Soar

What price are you willing to pay to see history?

The secondary market prices for Yankee tickets has skyrocketed for the next few games. As of Thursday morning, StubHub’s prices for the Tampa Series are way above face value.

The cheapest tickets for Thursday’s game are 20 dollars, which isn’t bad, but the chances of seeing Jeter get three hits in one game isn’t great. Friday and Saturday however, now that’s a different story. Friday’s cheap seats are going for 84 bucks, and there are left field obstructed-view seats available for 86 dollars a pop. So you get to pay 7 times the face value amount and see half of the game.

Saturday continues the trend, with the cheapest tickets sitting at 55 dollars. If you can’t get there by the subway, add in another 35 dollars to park, or a train fee, and you will really have to ask yourself, “What price am I wiling to pay to see 3,000?”

If Jeter gets two hits tonight, the prices will skyrocket for Friday. If he is sitting at 2,999 entering Saturday or Sunday expect those tickets to skyrocket as well.

I live about an hour and twenty-minute ride from Yankee Stadium, so usually I wait until I am just about to leave for a game to order tickets; they are much cheaper then. That philosophy isn’t going to work this weekend. If you want to see 3,000 you are going to have to guess the game right, or you will be paying a lot of money to see hits 3,003 and 3,004.

George Steinbrenner’s Best Television Moments

In honor of the late, great, George Steinbrenner’s birthday, also known as Independence Day, I bring to you his best moments.

Steinbrenner had a knack for using the media to his advantage, all in the name of getting more publicity for himself, and the Yankees.

George and Billy Martin for Miller Lite

It tastes great!

George on 60 Minutes with Ed Bradley

Steinbrenner admits to putting his foot through a television and being a sore loser. Also says that players shouldn’t be heroes unless they act like heroes. Now I see where Hank Steinbrenner gets it from.

Steinbrenner and Jeter Visa Commercial

Steinbrenner in the Conga line= priceless

Steinbrenner’s interview right after winning 1998 World Series

I love how he admits he knows nothing about computers. Also gave a lot of praise to a lot of people, not himself.

Steinbrenner helps ANSKY

The “ANSKY” guys’ commercials were popular at the end of the 90’s. “What the hell is ANSKY?” you ask? GOOGLE IT!!!

Steinbrenner on Seinfeld

“SINGLES TABLES ARE FOR LOSERS!”…”I don’t like putting undo pressure on people.”

Steinbrenner Hosts SNL

This was saved for #1 because it’s all about George.

Love him or hate him, George really did love New York, and all of the media attention being an owner brings. What else do you think should be on here?

What to Do On a Yankees’ Off-Day

The Yankees aren’t playing tonight and the only other thing that’s on is the NBA draft. If I wanted to see badly-dressed people celebrating I would just go to a bar in Poughkeepsie.

So my night looks pretty empty, and yours may be too, so here are a few things you can do:

#1- Talk with your family

This is your typical family of Red Sox fans.

-Try to have a conversation that doesn’t involve the Yankees. It could be about the weather, politics, or the neighbor’s ugly dog. Here’s how a typical conversation in my house goes:

Me- “Dad what’s the score?”

Dad- “2-0”

Me- “Yankees?”

Dad- “No. Garcia sucks!!”

Me- “But it’s the 5th inning, he’s keeping them in the game.”

Dad- “They’re losing–He sucks!”

#2- Read a Book

Lots of losing in this one. Title was originally supposed to be "100 years of Sucking", but an old French Prostitute already had that one.

The are these things with covers and paper with words inside of them. Sometimes you can actually learn something. Just don’t read too much at once, your head may hurt since you haven’t done it in a while

#3- Workout!

"I didn't get my rock-hard abs by sitting on my ass. Go ahead, touch em!"

Chances are you haven’t been watching the Yankees while pumping iron or running on a treadmill, so maybe it’s time to do something that involves you getting off the couch.

Here’s a typical Hank Steinbrenner workout:

100 12-ounce curls

3 reps of pointing at himself in the mirror and saying “Hal was NOT Dad’s Favorite”

1 rep of Cheeseburger eating

Watch one jazz-ercise video (Not to do anything, just to check out the ladies)

2 laps around the Yankees clubhouse. (The usual amount of laps needed to berate every single player after a loss)

10 smoking reps

#4- Go to bed!

Seriously, without the Yankees, the night will just suck anyway. Are you really going to talk to your family, workout, or read a book? Didn’t think so.

Goodnight.
