There’s a ticket agency next to the parking lot I use near Fenway Park and just for kicks I stopped in to ask about today’s game.
Get this: They expect to sell tickets at face value or below by 7:45 p.m. tonight. The nice woman behind the counter said that ticket sales have been slow for the ALCS. Other than the premium seats, they have had trouble finding takers.
Red Sox Nation, it seems, is not quite as fired up about their squad as they once were. Maybe it’s the economy. Maybe the fans are spoiled after 2004 and 2007. But for whatever the reason, good seats at decent prices were readily available.
Meanwhile the tarp is down here at Fenway and there is a slight drizzle. Back later with the lineups.
