How Much Are New Jersey Nets Tickets February 11th Edition

11 Feb

New Jersey Nets Coin

Since we last checked in, the Nets have played a home and home against the Pistons, losing both. Their next home game is tonight against Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs. If you would think that having a future Hall of Famer in the building would bump up prices, well, you would be correct. So just how much are tickets for the game against the Spurs going for tonight? $1.45, an incredible 14,500% increase from the last game, yet still amazingly affordable.

How Much Are New Jersey Nets Tickets January 8th Edition

New Jersey Nets Coin

The New Jersey Nets are a bad basketball team. They are also not going to be the New Jersey Nets for much longer, leaving for Brooklyn at the end of the season. A funny thing has happened as the Nets play out their lame duck season in the Prudential Center – ticket prices have dropped through the floor on StubHub. Literally as far as they can go. At this point, a family of 4 can get tickets to a game for less than a nickel. So, as the rest of the season plays out, I’ll be tracking just how little you could get Nets season tickets for if you were to only buy them the day of the game and posting the photographic evidence. Can we stay under $50 for the rest of the year? I think we just may.

How much are tickets for the game against the Pistons going for tonight? A penny.

Red Sox vs Phillies June 30, 2011

30 Jun

I’m at the finale of the Red Sox/Phillies series and in honor of Social Media Day, I’ll be live tweeting the game. Follow me on Twitter @andrewenzy if you’re stuck without the game, or just want to see how this goes.

Red Sox at Phillies, June 28, 2011

28 Jun

As a Red Sox fan in a National League city (Philly), I like to take advantage of the Red Sox coming to visit. They seem to make the trip every year, and I’m not complaining about it. Tonight I had standing room only tickets, which basically lets the home team say, sure, we’ll take your money, but you don’t get a seat. So, me and my buddy Ryan got to the game early enough to get front row out on the centerfield patio.

The Phillies won 5-0, and I’ll just leave it at this – Cliff Lee is a very good pitcher. And the Red Sox National League line up isn’t very good. Put those two together, and it doesn’t bode well for the team I want to see win.

UPDATE: Vancouver Kissing Couple Not Staged [Video]

24 Jun Kissing Vancouver Couple riot


Kissing Vancouver Couple riot

Last week, I wrote a post on the Vancouver kissing couple from the post-Stanley Cup loss riots. I had some fun with what was ultimately a sad situation for the city of Vancouver. This photo seemed to be the one of the few positive things (along with citizens helping clean up, and the thank you post-its covering cop cars. Which kind of seems counterproductive to cleaning up and helping the cops, but I digress) that happened that night. As always, haters gonna hate, and it was called out as being staged. Then, this video below came out a few days ago. It depicts what exactly led to the couple being in the position they were – cops singling them out of the mass of people, and beating them to the ground with riot shields and what look like batons. It’s kind of brutal, yet I think shows that the powerful image we saw may have had even more meaning than we had originally thought. A moment of love in a time of chaos.

Mark Cuban and the Greatest Legal Brief in History

22 Jun

dallas mavericks 2011 nba championsThe Dallas Mavericks recently took down the might Miami Heat to take home their first championship in franchise history. Dallas celebrated with a parade, one that DeShawn Stevenson may or may not have been sober at. Cleveland celebrated by making the Mavericks honorary Ohioans for Dirk “keeping his talents in Dallas” (burn!) and the Mavericks displaying “loyalty, integrity, and teamwork” in defeating the evil LeBron James. And Mark Cuban celebrated by giving a giant litigious middle finger to minority owner Ross Perot Jr. Let’s take a look at this brilliant legal brief, in response to Perot Jr.’s suit that the Mavericks are being mismanaged.

The Boston Red Sox and Frustrating Dice-K Matsuzaka

20 Jun
Daisuke Matsuzaka Dice K

What am I supposed to do with this?

A couple weeks ago, it was reported that Daisuke Matsuzaka will under go Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, ending his season, and possibly his time with the Red Sox. Guess how many people are upset? NONE. (Approximately.) In eight starts this year, Dice-K is 3-3 with a 5.30 ERA. He has walked nearly as many as he has struck out. And he has continued to frustrate the Red Sox and fans.

How bad has it gotten? CBS Sports actually wrote an article asking whether or not it was okay to be happy when a player got injured. Their answer? The same as most of ours. Yes. To me, it’s not that I’m happy he’s hurt. I’m happy he’s out of the rotation. He just so happens to be out of the rotation because he’s hurt.

What was most irritating about Dice-K’s tenure in Boston Continue reading
