    After some banter back and forth with my rep about how unhappy I was; I told her I got tickets myself on Ticketmaster. Just got this gem of an email back:

    Scott,


    Thank you for letting me know.

    Thank you for being such a loyal fan.


    Sorry again.

    I'd go if it wasn't an afternoon game (I know tradition)... taking a half day off work to support this organization?

    And a Monday at that. If it was a Friday again I'm there, but with the amount of time off I'm taking this month I really don't feel like taking a half day and then have to work the next day.

    I'm sure I'll be there the 1st Saturday.

    I did take advantage of the Groupon patio party deal. $44 for an outfield reserved and patio party ticket. Just booked 11 tickets for my buddy's bachelor party.

    Everyone is paying for their own ticket except the dude getting married, we're covering him as a group.

    What I meant to ask was did you front the money? You're still young; don't know if you have had this experience yet but I personally will never front shit for that again. People inevitably back out and you're stuck holding the check. Happened to me more than once. It's why I only go out to dinner in groups with the same people cause I hate when people don't split the check equally or reasonably.

    Oh, we pretty much have the same friend group, some of these guys I've known since I was in middle school, so I trust they won't be dickheads. Only person I don't know that well are guy's BIL, who is supposedly in for sure.

    I did same event last year for another friend and got 100% attendance and no one backing out, hoping it goes smoothly again.

    Good for you. I just stopped doing that stuff; especially with any sort of tickets. Got burned too many times when it's like: "Oh my brother in law will for sure come; get him a ticket." "Jimmy's cousin is coming; grab him a ticket."

    I've dropped around $220 on 4 tickets to 3 games. Don't even know who's going to all of them outside of 1 person for each, just figured buy them and figure it out later.

    Yeah I totally get your point- if this was a situation where my buddy had friends from multiple friend circles and random family members coming that I didn't know, I wouldn't have bought the tickets until I received payment.

    I just remembered his college friend was invited but he gave no response, I don't know him that well either, so I didn't buy him a ticket.

    That e-mail was so bad, Cheeses probably wrote it.

    If somebody insists that I buy them a ticket and then "backs out," they still owe me the full price of the ticket. I can't imagine staying friends with the type of RF who would refuse to pay.

    Bought a 7 game package with shit seats except for slightly less shitty cubs tickets and bought an extra pair. If they sell on stubhub like they did last year I'll end up going to every game for free plus pocketing ~$50 or so.

    6 people have already paid. 1 other guy offered to stop by my place to give me cash since he's a luddite that doesn't use PayPal. I told him just bring cash day of. Looking like I will have to deal with no fuckery.

    I don't understand what this means. They're going back to paper tickets? I have yet to hear anything about it and they're all already available on the app.

    While I'm sick of hearing about 2005. Find it a little weird they didn't mention that in those tickets. Maybe this is just a sample and ones will come out. I want my Geoff Blum ticket.

    Uhh...yeah. That is only 14 of the 81 that were done. Guarantee(d Rate) that they included some from 93, 2000, 03 ASG, 05, 08.

    For as much as this franchised sucked off the 2005 WS, you think that be the first they showcase. That's the point. Geoff Blum should have his number retired ( yes, this is a joke).

    They're not the ones who put these out, Todd Radom - the designer, did.

    New giveaways put up there. 1917 jerseys (I think that is new.) Also a soccer jersey in September. Couple other ones. Also the first free shirt Thursday is up.
