Do you want some kind of steetfair/block party? And frankly, aside from the players and their parents, who cares about HS games?

The majority of the fans decided it was too expensive and to either wait it out or not go entirely. I choose to wait it out til day of, and it looks like by that time I may be able to get in the door for $50.
Agreed on the price. Should have made the price similar to Giants tickets pricing (Aside from the club seat prices) at 85-125, maybe a LITTLE higher. Both games would have sold out and there would be a decent secondary market. But, at these prices, too many people decided to buy both, go to one sell one. 5 people do it, no problem. 5000 people do it? Problem.
