Anyone else sense a lack of demand for OD this year? They have had a lot of "deals" out there to try to move tickets.

Ticket prices still seem to be up for opening day on ebay.

They did the same thing last year.

Everyone wants to go to Opening Day. My brother would love to. But he lost his job. Gotta feeling he's not the only one. I got 2 tickets to OD and 2 tickets to the Civil Rights game vs the White Sox for 145.00

I went a few years ago and loved it. I think one of the problems might be a lot fewer people feel they can ask off work in the current climate..I myself have two personal days available but would feel uncomfortable using one for OD. Add the people who have lost their jobs in and you are bound to have soft demand. Just my .02 on the situation.
