The newness of PNC Park has worn off. The All-Star Game has come and gone. There was no Adam LaRoche-type player added to the roster this offseason. This summer, against an improved NL Central Division, the Pirates will field pretty much the same team that lost 94 games in 2007.
My question for you is, are you still buying tickets? And if so, what keeps you coming back?
I’m interested in hearing from season-ticket holders, especially the long-suffering folks who’ve been going to 20, 40, 60 or 82 games a season for decades. Did you renew your season plan this year, or have you finally said “Enough of the Bucs!” and plunked down the money on Penguins tickets or a Cancun vacation instead? Are a small business owner who gave up your box at PNC Park or are you thinking about ponying up the cash this year to get one?
Drop me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). I’d like to hear your stories.
