Marlins: The Punchline

Continuing from Thursday... So I had a nice time at the game on Saturday, though they lost. But I had fun with my brother and my friends and their beautiful daughters.

More problems getting straight with my tickets, but I'm not going to drone on with the details.

Well, maybe a little.

I wound up downgrading my tickets because the seats were more expensive that night since it was a "Super Saturday" with entertainment after the game; Lou Gramm of Foreigner, who also sang the anthem.

The very nice lady in the ticket office tried to take care of me, but her butthead supervisor refused to let her do an upgrade exchange, so I wouldn't have to pay extra. No. Can't. Won't. Whatever.

When I said I didn't want to pay additional and I was willing to be downgraded to less expensive seats, he wanted ME to pay the difference.

The nice lady had to explain it to him a couple of times. So I took the tix, lost a few bucks and thanked her profusely — and said that I understood how it was to work with stupid
people. Her smile was one of the brightest I'd seen in a long time.

Oh, and the punchline? They announced during the game that it was... Fan Appreciation Day!

Go Marlins!
