Rangers games at that time (while I was in college) I used to get the 300s seats for $40 I remember. (vs the islanders)

One time we splurged for 100s ($120) and once for the 200s ($65).

Tower records had tickets for sale all year.

That was reasonable for a college kid making $80 a week. Now you have to usually pay over $100 just for the worst seats. Am I sounding like my mom talking about how much she paid for her house in 1970?
