American Dollars?!?!?

I occasionally get emails from Ticketmaster about events coming up. I saw they had this cool show called Walking With the Dinosaurs and thought I would check it out and with my birthday FAST approaching (only 18 more shopping days left, everyone!) I was trying to find something fun to do. Well, I saw the tickets were priced from $29.50 to $49.50. I would naturally want the best seats, but not willing to pay in excess of $100.00 (with tax and all the charges that ticket master charges!) to basically see a MOVIE.

I digress... my hubby loves professional wrestling (I am into it now too, because of him). Before you say how wrestling is fake, blah, blah, blah, lemme finish.

He asked me to look up when and/or if the WWE would be anywhere close to us. I saw all the various events and places and saw "Wrestlemania" in April. I clicked on it for kicks and grins to see how much the tickets were. Again, I would want the best seats to be close to the action...

Guess how much the best seats were? I dare ya!

I'm waiting.......

More......

Higher......

Higher......

No, you're not even close.

One last guess, then I'll tell you.


Alright. Are you sitting down? Do you have a paper bag?

The tickets were OVER $9000.00 EACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I said out loud: "Is that AMERICAN DOLLARS???"

And I thought $49.50 was a little pricey!

Whoa ! That is just crazy ! I wanted to go see Riverdance next month but it's $75.00 each so I told my Hubs I would buy the DVD and watch it as many times as I want !

BTW,
Instead, we are going to a dinner theatre...dinner and a show for about $50.00 !

That HAS to be a missprint. $9000 Holy freaking smokes batman. (confession, me and hubby have watched our fair share of wrestle mania as well)

Maybe since everyone knows how fake wrestling is, the only people that would want to sit in the front row are those lost in a virtual reality world where they can magically create $9000 out of thin air to pay for such frivolousness? OK, it's lame but the best I could think of. :)

Nope, not a misprint, not a mistake. I even looked again today.
