I don't even want to add up what I've spent on tickets for this summer. I just bought more Manchester U tickets (verses, the Earthquakes -- which for some reason is at UC Berkeley??)
You know how you're attracted towards things you're naturally good at? I'm really good at getting awesome seats at concerts/shows. I want other people to have these great experiences.
This morning in the presale, I didn't want to lose good seats by panicking over the prices like I did for Manchester U vs. FC Barcelona. And I was doing it on my phone, so I couldn't really tell if I was getting the best seats or not. But they were expensive. Okay, I told myself. If my son doesn't want to work for those tickets, I can sell them. Right? (A shopoholic must self-soothe with self-talk and justifications.)
I told him the cost. He balked. (He's in Greece right now.) But then, I told him he's in the front row on the field. Seriously? he asks. Who loves you, baby?
So for summer, I have great tickets for:
San Jose Earthquakes vs. Americas (Mexican team and a favorite of my son's.)
Manchester United vs. San Jose Earthquakes
Manchester United vs. FC Barcelona
5 Seconds of Summer
You know how many I'm going to? You guessed it. None. I just pay for them. My boss is taking us all to the Giants' game this summer though. I can people watch and have a crab sandwich. : )
Oh, and speaking of sports, my daughter ran into Stephen Curry at Santana Row. Said he was really nice. If you don't know who he is, check this out:
