I received this message from the Flubs for a season ticket auction. http://mytickets.tickets.com/buy/TicketR...amp;trxstate=31

So far the bid is $218.75 per ticket or $35,000 for 2 tickets for the season.

I'm sure you could have a lot more fun for $35,000.00 than you would at all those ball games.

Use your imagination.

Would your seats be next to Jena Jaimeson?

That sucks! Sorry to hear it. Hopefully unlike being a Cubs fan it turns out to be a good thing you didn't get the job and you get a better one.

Well that's not going to happen; this one was a pipe dream I was lucky to even be in the final cut for. But I'll be ok. I'll bring back what worked (Dempster), let go what may let me down (Wood), bring in a potential difference-maker (Bradley), pray my best talents shine through over the long term (Harden), hope for continuing development of my nascent assets (Soto), and rely heavily on that which has brought me success in the past (Lee, Ramirez, Zambrano, Soriano).

Now, if only they'd pay me for trite baseball/legal job market analogies. I'd be set.

I don't know which is worse for Cubs fans: Having a competitive team that still breaks your heart or the rising cost and relative unavailability of tickets for that competitive team.
Plenty of seats available here in Arlington.

So the Dodgers chose Man Ram over you.
