I feel like I am 11

Master Haggler

The only good thing about how poorly the Boston Red Sox did this season was that I got to go see a game at Fenway Park. Red Sox tickets are the highest priced tickets in Major League Baseball. Also, it is the smallest stadium so there are the fewest number of tickets. On top of […]
