I Hope This Red Sox Fan is Enjoying Game 1 of the World Series for $6

Yup, you read that correctly: there’s a fan at tonight’s Game 1 of the 2013 MLB World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox for a whopping $6. All of one Abraham Lincoln and a George Washington.

Or as Deadspin put it, full of the lucky fan’s proof of purchase and printed ticket, less than his first (or second, or third) beer’s going to cost him. I don’t think he could buy the gum off the bottom of his seat for $6. We are talking about Fenway Park, after all.

I mean, for chrissake, his entry to Fenway was less expensive than my New York City breakfast this morning. And that’s including his StubHub fee ($3, as much as he paid for the actual ticket)!

Considering the Red Sox are up 7-0 with one inning left (!!!), it certainly seems this Erik character picked a good game to rip someone off. I almost feel bad for the person who clearly just put the decimal point in the wrong place, but at least one of the terrible fans who decided to pawn off their World Series tickets – instead of going themselves – deserved it.
