A couple weeks ago the Washington Nationals put out a list of the top “81 Ways To Use Your Season Tickets” for its fans. Now, call me crazy, but I thought there was really only a couple ways to use your tickets, sell them or use them yourself. Luckily the Nationals were there to tell me that, no, there are other ways that one can use their Nationals season tickets.
The remarkable thing about this list is that there are at least 20 suggestions they offer up that involve you not going to the game. The team itself is saying “give these tickets away that you paid your hard earned dollars for”!!
Lets take a look at some of the best suggestions.
81. Offer them to your neighbor who takes in your mail while you are on vacation
80. Show your mail carrier you appreciate him or her
79. Get in good with your in-laws
76. Give your tickets to a youth team
75. Give them to a prospective employee who is interviewing from out of town
Right away, five of the first seven suggestions they give the fans are to give away their tickets and make some poor neighbor that cant afford a vacation or a poor mailman or your old ass inlaws or some kids or an unemployed bastard your tickets. So there you have it Nats fans. These will be your demographics for the stands this year: Old people, kids, the unemployed and/or poor and underemployed people.
