Bears Tickets, Shmears Tickets
Think I'm probably headed to Stubhub for my next ticket search. These guys have tried to build a secondary market-maker service around tickets alone; they're attempting to out-eBay eBay in a single (very lucrative) domain. Seems like they've gotten all the right relationships and have tickets to a tremendous variety of worthwhile events. Will they put neighborhood and workplace networks, and the brokers who help power them at street level, out of work? No, or at least not entirely. But this sure seems like another perfect application of the transactional lubricant the web has become in so many markets.
That said, $161/ticket for 4 top deck tickets to see the Lions? C'mon. Does that at least include bottled oxygen?
