The real question is can I do it for less than a grand since anymore and my wife will start protesting that it's too much for five innings of baseball
Smart woman that wife of yours. It's a good question even if you were able to stay for the whole game.
I'm just not a big believer in paying big bucks for games, concerts, etc. It just doesn't feel right to me, for whatever reason. Maybe because I don't have money to throw around but I doubt it.
