Tell me about it! I bought 3 tix during halftime of the MSU PSU game when it looked like Sparty had a shot. They proceeded to get dumped and I was left with 3 lousy tickets. Bought for 145 with fees and finally was able to unload for $50 per. In some ways I can't blame these cheap bastards for not wanting to see a game with limited implications but I would have liked them to bail me out! Probably some $5 seats by game day.

I'm glad we have DJ and crew to scan the depths of despair that is Mgoblog to deliver us nuggets of sadness and depression so we readers can be spared from such a nasty and arduous task. In fact, it's been a favorite part of my regular post "The Game" celebrations.

You're exactly right. This "model" is catching on in a lot of other industries as well. Cruise ships are segmenting passengers to a far greater degree than they did in the past, allowing folks to pay up for "premium experiences". I used to hate it with the airlines but I'm beginning to get sucked in. For a few extra bucks on a domestic flight you can snag premium economy or even business class. The service level is demonstrably better. I flew premium economy from London to Atlanta on Virgin Atlantic and was ruined. I'll never be able to do economy again on a flight longer than 3 or 4 hours.
