At the zenith of the luxury movement in sports: New Yankee Stadium, where the best tickets cost $2,625. Not per season–per game.
Faced with this absurdity, a Yankee fan has developed a solution. It’s actually cheaper–far cheaper–to fly to Seattle and see the Yanks and Mariners play twice at Safeco Field than it would be to see the same two teams play just once in the Bronx.
An NYC podiatrist named Gary Cicio claims that you could fly to Seattle, stay in the city’s best hotel for two nights, eat at the city’s two best restaurants, and get top tix to both Saturday and Sunday’s games for just $2,800.
