Twins tickets for the 2011 season are purchased. Success? Partly. We came prepared to the field with necessities from last year: coffee, mittens and the spreadsheet. However, we did not factor in the mob of people that camped there since Friday morning to get tickets. The line was out of control. After assessing the situation we took a deep breath, looked around at the signs and noticed something new–we could only buy a total of 8 tickets per game and 24 tickets total per person! This meant with three people we would not buy the bazillion tickets we were planning on. We did the next best thing we could think of…we call in reinforcements. Our friend David recognized the dire situation after three phone calls and came down to TF to help us out.
We waited a considerable time to get tickets (2.5 hours)–which gave us plenty of time to see a bride and groom get their pictures taken in front of the stadium, hear the people in front of us worry about not being able to get any tickets and organize and re-organize the spreadsheet.
In the end we walked away with tickets for most of the games we wanted, but not all. Clearly Joe and the boys were planning to invite us to some of the games themselves–so it will all work out.
20 days until Opening Day!
