On opening day for the Philadelphia Phillies, my wife and I were anxious to attend but we did not have tickets.
The night before the game, we decided to arrive at the ballpark early with a cooler full of tailgating food and drink, and try to find a scalper that would give us a deal on some good seats.
Much to our surprise, there was not a scalper in sight. Very strange for the city of Philadelphia.
Like twilight zone strange.
I said to my wife, why don't I just try the ticket office? Maybe they have some standing room only tickets.
She told me it was a waste of my time because the game was sold out, which it was.
I said what have we got to lose? So I went to the ticket window to see if I could get some Phillies tickets at face value.
And sure enough I did.
I didn't even have to settle for standing room only. We got two tickets in the outfield and got to watch the Phillies lose in the cold and rain.
I was just happy that I was able to get my Phillies tickets at face value and not have to pay a ridiculous amount of money to a scalper.
