  1. Breaking news::::St. Louis Blues beat Bruins to capture Stanley Cup and to be honest with the prices they were charging to attend the 7th game I’m not disappointed with the outcome.

    1. One of the prices for having a successful team. I have been able to work scalpers for tickets for Celtics and Redsox tickets when they are having lousy years. But to be honest, with big screen HD TVs, I think I enjoy the games more at home.

    2. Face value is what it is. Secondary market is based on supply/demand. You really feel the need to let everyone know you’re happy with a loss because others were willing to pay up? Lame….

  2. I too watch the games at home but with the salaries these guys are making it’s getting harder and harder to be a fan.
