What is it with the Padres and their tickets?

I love the city of San Diego.
I wouldn't mind seeing the Padres eventually win it all.
And I LOVE Petco Park.

Got all of that out of the way.

Seriously, there is something screwed up about how they deal with tickets there.

A few years ago I WANTED to spend money at Petco Park and instead I got to use the park for free. And then they wondered why they didn't have enough money to sign Adrian Gonzalez.

Well today I was checking my Facebook account and I saw this ad plastered on the side bar.

Um... that game was played yesterday.
It is April 6.
I guess I could get my Opening Day tickets, hop in the DeLorean, rev it up to 88 miles per hour and hope the Flux Capacitor can generate 1.21 gigawatts and we go back in time to yesterday's game.

Yes yes I know. This is probably some outlet called Atlas Tickets and they haven't taken the ad down yet.

It just is strange that it keeps coming up for the Padres... a team that plays in a great ballpark in the heart of a fabulous downtown and can't sell tickets, even when the team is good.

I wonder if I am going to get an ad to buy tickets for the 1984 World Series.

  1. I love to go to that stadium because there is something really special about it, I think it's the fans and the ambient they create and that pic is a very good example of it
