Figures

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

So if you couldn't tell I'm a sports nut. Big time Ranger fan, uh hum cough, choke, Cowboy fan and Dallas Stars fan. Anyway, Rangers are one game away from taking down the Evil Empire called the New York Yankees and going to the World Series. First time in their history (Rangers have been in Texas since 1972 and were previously the Washington Senators since 1961).

Well, I have tickets to game six. I was given them by someone else that couldn't go (well not given, but she's has a flexible payment plan). Now I'm in a dilemma. Because my hubby decided to call in sick, his check is short and yeah, we can't go. I can't even pay for parking much less have the gas to get there. So, my greatest hope is that they win today and I don't have to worry about this. It would be super awesome to get to go to my first post season game of the Rangers, but it looks like life is not going to let it happen.

So, yeah I'm happy for the Rangers, but boo I'm majorly depressed now because I'm freaking 47 years old and can't come up with $50 to pay for my gas the next week. My life totally sucks. and it's my daughter's birthday this weekend and my anniversary. and a negative checking account and I can't do this any more.

    Awww - I feel for you with the whole money situation. I was in that situation before I met my husband so I know how it feels. It stinks. Keep your head up and think positive - It will all work out for you guys.

    We are hoping that there are many like you rooting against the Evil Empire. Yeah I've heard about the parking in Fenway. That's twice the cost of a normal ticket down here in the sticks. Our NEW owner already lowered parking and concession prices the day after he took over. It's greatness... that and having Nolan RYAN the great as our President and owner.

    Speaking as an avowed member of Red Sox Nation... I'm rooting for the Texas Rangers too !! As the saying goes,"I root for the Red Sox and any team that beats the Yankees." LOL !!! Speaking of parking, you have no idea what parking costs until you come to Fenway Park for a game. Let's talk $50+ !!!

    I'm sorry you're having financial difficulties. I know you'd love to go to the game, but since you need money, have you considered selling the tickets you have at face value to another friend ? It wouldn't be scalping if you did. It's only scalping if you charge extra.

    Try not to worry about your finances. At least take the weekend to enjoy your anniversary as well as your daughter's birthday. I'm sure everything will work out okay.
