    No clue, maybe a late arriving crew for the night? I missed the top of 1st is all. I could have missed the entire game and I still wouldnt have missed anything😠
  5. My GF and I hadnt been to Sox game in 2 yrs, last one at GR, so I ordered tix on ticket master for last nights game in Milwaukee and when we got parked and she went to download the tix TM website didnt allow her to do so since I had ordered seats (which she was allowed to do so 2 yrs ago go figure) So I was unprepared to download the tix on my cell and didnt have my passwords and mobile app, so I did the Forgot Password, got a 6 digit code but never found the place back on TM website to paste it to. So we are boiling hot in the sun so I suggested we go to ticket window and explain our dilemma. We asked if we could get a paper tix, and after a series of security questions, I paid the $8 printing fee and the lady handed us our 2 tix the old school way, on printed paper stock The 2 tickets we paid for online w all the service fees (in section 412) came to $106 ad some change. I cant recall the face value, maybe approx $42 each...... So I look at my paper ticket this AM and see the price of one ticket was $21 face value, for same seats vs Sox Why was face value double via ticketmaster and could I have walked up to window and scored same tickets for half what I paid TM? I guess I'm out of the loop!! I thought the broker made money by buying in quantity and adding service fees. Buying in quantity yes but doubling the price and adding SC? Is it a case of charging what the market will bear??

    Question on Brewers/Sox tickets last night

    I did the "Forget password?" button which I did and got a code number which I was to insert in the TM website but never saw a place to insert the number....hence the printing of ticket at the window. Was I blind?? I'm not much on computers, I mean a server is a bartender right? and a hard drive is a trip thru a snow storm!!

    I too had similiar drama, took forever to get in, huge line at all entrances ALso had really hard time finding my car as there are what seemed many parking lots and the light poles had very few signs indicating where you had parked, we were in lot labeled G gate 6 which didnt reference much to me. Took at least 30 min to find my car

    Does TLR need to light up the umpires more?

    Seems many yrs ago there was about 3 players from a team get ejected over a terrible blown call and IIRC their logic was that this would make sports news and the umpire would get exposed as blowing the call can umps get demoted to AAA if they are deemed incompetent?

    I think summerfest is over, FWIW the Milwaukee Zoo is outstanding. The historic THird Ward is worth checking out for a few beers. Gotta love those cheeseheads ! Of course they LOVE to take Flatlanders money

    Cubs 2021

    IIRC both sides have won 3 World Series now, but the tiebreaker goes to the Sox as they defeated the cubs the one time they played eachother

    In fact with some exceptions, I'd say most of my cub fans are actually pretty nice people. Its their team that sucks!!
