Minnesota Twins Tickets

It know that it is hard to believe, but this is the last Minnesota Twins season at the Metrodome. By the sounds of it, there is definitely some level of nostalgia, felt by Twins fans, which has lead to Minnesota Twins Tickets being a super hot commodity. Get this, the Minnesota Twins have sold out the home opener on 4/6/2009 versus the Seattle Mariners. I checked out some of my favorite ticket sites and found that lower level Twins Tickets are selling for between $69 and $199/Ticket. All I can say is WOW!!!

For the record, the Twins play the Mariners the following evening and the same Twins Baseball Tickets range in price from $19 to $79/Ticket. I think that I am going to opt for this game. GO TWINKIES!!!

Minnesota Timberwolves Make Big Pricing Move

Just days after my last post applauding the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Wild for the freeze that they put on ticket prices for next year, the Minnesota Timberwolves did one better. On Tuesday, the Minnesota Timberwolves announced that they have slashed the 2009 prices on whole season Minnesota Timberwolves Tickets. Here are some of the highlights for next year:

1) Timberwolves Tickets in the upper level corner in decent rows are only $5/Ticket.

2) Timberwolves Basketball Tickets in the lower level corner are only $15/Ticket.

3) Minnesota Timberwolves Basketball Tickets in the first few rows of the upper level are just $15/Ticket.

You have to hand it to the Timberwolves, they have made a bold statement with their new pricing. No longer will price be a reason for the average fan not to head down to the Target Center for a Timberwolves game. WAY TO GO TIMBERWOLVES!!!

Local Pro Sports Franchises Finally Get It!

For the first time in approximately eight years, both the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Wild have kept their season tickets prices the same as they were last year. It is nice to see that they have both began to understand how tough it is for the average fan to buy season tickets and that it has become even more difficult due the poor economy.

I applaud the Minnesota Vikings for keeping the prices of Vikings tickets the same as last year even though the team did show some improvement by making it to the NFL Playoffs!

I also applaud the Minnesota Wild for not increasing the prices of Wild tickets even though they continue to sell out every game while producing a competitive and quality product!

Maybe the days of greedy Minnesota professional sport franchise owners like Red McCombs are behind us and we can count on the current owners to understand that sporting events are not just a privilege of the rich.
