Why don't you wait until the very last minute to see if you can get a cheaper one? Are you going alone? You can get one cheaper if you're buying a lone ticket and you wait as long as you can before first pitch. Try to be patient. There was a dude last night selling a single because someone in his group backed out at the last minute for face value.  :lmao:  There's no way I would've given him face value for a ticket he was almost desperate to unload. Especially since he was trying to sell it at the home plate entrance and it was clear that he was itching to go inside.

I was at the park about an hour before the game started and the cops did a sweep on all the scalpers. I'm not sure if they made it back, but when I walked from the metro there were no scalpers out there.  they were even giving a guy crap for GIVING A TICKET AWAY.

I'm going to wait for quite awhile. I think I may just head down to the bullpen and figure it out from there. I don't think I'm going to purchase a 100$ ticket just yet.

I have a group of people (4 total) trying to get standing room tickets but none of us can go down to the park right now and grab them. I think we're all just going to go to the bullpen and play it by ear.

Something is giving me hope about the nationals website though. They're putting up all types of sections randomly.

I called and they told me it was a bug. They have nothing left; that's what the sales person said at least.

May do the same. Thankfully, I live close enough that I can check stubhub at 7pm and hopefully grab something on the cheap.

...do we break the Nats Park attendance record (set at Game 3 on Wednesday) of 45,017 tonight? Or the all-time NL Nats record of 45,157 set at the 'Who's Your Daddy' Sunday finale against the Yankees in 2006?

Tonight was originally supposed to be the Capitals regular-season home opener (vs Devils)...well there goes that main competitor for fan dollars.

Have an extra parking pass that I bought on the nats site. I printed it out already, but can I forward it by email to someone else?

Yes, just forward him the same link you used to print the pass.

I'm stunned. Glad I got my tickets locked in. Really wishing I had bought those extra strips.

I'm not sure, but StubHub might deactivate the bar code for the sold tickets and then assign new bar code numbers on the tickets the buyer receives and prints out.

The Nats issue a new bar code via StubHub when a sale is made. Just make sure that it's an Instant transfer ticket, I got burned on Wednesday because the guy I bought a parking pass from never entered the bar code. I suspect that he sold it to someone else for more cash. Major inconvenience from a work perspective, but by leaving over an hour earlier than planned I got to drink beer in the sunshine.

I'm getting that question a lot today, about the extra ticket, not the arm candy, I work with a bunch of ugly dudes.

This is a premium game so it would take a little more than eye candy to secure one.  :lol:
