Nothin for Game 2. I'll try again tomorrow

Not to piss anyone off, but, if you are "ADA"  (not ADHD) , there are quite a few pairs left.

I see it says those are restricted to handicapped people. How do they enforce that?

I was the only one of my friends to get through. Looks like I'm everyone's new best friend.

Does anyone know what happens if - god forbid - they don't make it past the Cardinals? I assume I get all my money back from the tickets, but what about the $80 in convenience charges?

The team's site says they will refund the ticket price and the convenience fee but not the $4.00 handling fee (which is a bullcrap thing if you got electronic tickets):

Quote
Refunds
In the event that a game is not necessary and therefore not played, all single game purchases for that game will automatically be refunded to the card on which it was purchased.  No refunds will be issued for played games for any reason.

Any single game tickets purchased through Tickets.com, over the phone or online, for games that go un-played will have the face value of the ticket and the convenience fee refunded. All other fees are non-refundable.

Season Ticket Holders – postseason payments for un-played games will be applied toward your 2013 season ticket plan. The handling fee is non-refundable.

They don't, check out the fans in row A along the field.

Those are by far the worst seats in the house in terms of proximity to Clint, Terrence, and the rest of that troupe of imbeciles.

80.00 in convenience fees? what? On top of the $70.00 face value?

That's what I thought. Maybe I just read the post wrong and thought he was talking about $80 for just the fees.

In total, it was about that. $7 per ticket x 8. Then $20 shipping and handling. I opted for the paper tickets.

I've sat there a few times, including for Strasmas II, amazing view down on the field, sitting closer to Zimmm than he is to the pitcher.

Terrance is cool, I've got no problem with him or Clint.

Must be great for Terrance now that the games have real meaning and the fans are into the game.  I would hate to have to do that (running around waving your arms like a lunatic trying to get people into the game) on a Tuesday night against Florida with 17,000 people at the game.

They have that, the bar codes, and they make a ton of cash from resales which is why they have a deal with Stubhub.

Do you think the Nats are listing postseason tickets on Stubhub?

the reason I ask is because I bought my NLDS Game 1 tickets for $20 over face (each) the same day of the NLDS Insider Presale and today I just happened to get a NLDS ticket advisory email from the Nats  :devil:

If someone here is looking for a single, can stand to sit next to me, and swears to meet in time to get the seats before first pitch I should have an extra in 22X. The wife, while getting more interested, won't mind a game or two off.  I am looking for what I paid and obviously am not interested in doing this for resale.

The Nats know the tickets are yours if you buy them on StubHub. So yes, they do track their tickets there.

No, the Lerner family wouldn't risk public ridicule just to make a few extra bucks.

Kidding aside, I doubt it but I wouldn't blame them if they did. If I owned a team I'd look into selling via an auction so that the highest bidders get the top seats, row B would be cheaper than row A and less than row C. Let the market set the value of the original sale price and not just the resale price.

I've purchased handicapped seats when a friend of mine was late making it to the ball game.  I met him and went in with him, so I don't know how aggressively the ushers give you a look if you are there with someone who does not have a obvious access impairment.

So...I just realized the tickets I bought off stubhub are ADA seats a little while ago (section 235 Row P). I must have missed it when I was buying them or something, but I don't use a wheelchair or anything, and neither does the guy going with me. Does this mean I'm screwed basically or what?
