Tickets to sporting events are a luxury in this day and age. They are also a valuable commodity. Online ticket services have made it easy to unload and profit off of your assets.
Conversely, it also gives opposing fans an opportunity to gobble up huge chunks of real estate in your stadium for game day.
Such is the case this week for the showdown between the Giants and the Jets. The game is on Christmas Eve in the toughest economic climate in this country in eight decades. There will be many Jet fans looking to sell their tickets. This week, the green facade will be peppered with a lot of blue.
Supporting your team is one thing. Supporting your family is another. There will be other Jet fans and many Giant fans seeking tickets. Season pass holders could potentially make thousands by selling.
Jets head coach Rex Ryan hopes the fans don't sell out on his team. But they will. The money's too good to pass up.
It has nothing to do with how great a fan you are, either. It is no shame to cash in on the riches that await. The players they are paying to see and their bosses have no issue with cashing in so why should they?
This is America, after all....
