Ten Reasons to Go to the Oakland Game On Friday

I interrupt this spontaneously non-scheduled haitus to bring you an important message:

Frequent blog commenter and Inventer of the Define Your Verification Word Game, Jeremiah, is in a bind. He can't use his 2 season tickets for Friday night's 7pm game against Oakland and is looking for someone to buy them, short notice. They're in section 232, row 21.

In order to help, I have crafted a super helpful list. Obviously.

Ten reasons to buy Jeremiah's Tickets to Friday's game vs. Oakland

1) At $20 apiece (with maybe even a little wiggle room there if you ask really really nicely), it's less than face value at single game pricing. And let's face it, friends don't let friends pay retail for Oakland.

2) This is the Next-to-Next-to-Last-Friday Night you can spend at the Dome.

3) This is an excellent oppotunity to mock the A's for wearing white shoes after Labor Day.

4) Two words: Craig. Breslow.

5) It's something to do between the NFL Thursday night game, and college football on Saturday.

6) Buying these tickets from Jeremiah is at least 7 times less sketchy than buying tickets from the loitering scalper brigade.

7) If you don't go to the game, it is entirely possible that Glen Perkins will file a grievance against you.

8) In the upper deck, you're a safe distance away from the Oakland players. The chances that one of them will be able to climb up that far and shank you during the 7th inning stretch are slim at best. I mean, anything is possible...but you're probably out of harm's way.

9) A rousing game of I Spy Terrifying Facial Hair is so much more fun when we play Oakland. Only the White Sox offer up a more satisfying competition.

10.) OK. I lied. There are actually only 9 reasons I could think of. BUT they are 9 really good reasons.

If you're interested, or know someone who is, send me an email and I'll pass it along. I have an email listed on my blogger profile.

And if the tickets are spoken for by the time you read this, the logic of my awesome list still stands, and have no fear, there is always the loitering scalper brigade. Or....you know....the ticket window.

Substitute "the Nationals" for "Oakland" and this could be about the Mets. Except that there isn't a ticket in the ballpark to be had for $20 face.

I thank you for the valiant effort. And as you said, the list was awesome.

Hahaha...loved the list! After I read #7 I was laughing out loud!

Sarah said...

#7 was my favorite too :)

Well...besides Craig Breslow.

Ummm... Those Girls. Where is the very important pump-up post before this very important series?? Hmm?

Oh, Girls? You are missed. Because the Twins have finally turned it on since your last post, are you staying silent to avoid jinxing them? I hope it isn't something silly like...living your lives or something.
