    Re: 2010 Olympics Ticket Prices Announced

    I have TOTALLY been waiting for this announcement all day.
    WTG vancover2010.com for not sending out THAT e-mail LOL

    Ummm... so if I get an Canadian friend to buy the tix... can I, as an American, use them?
    And will anyone outside of Canda be offered worse seats than Canadians? (in this lottery?)
    Time to start saving
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I don't know if I'll be able to go see any sport event, but I would like to get to Vancouver for pin trading during the Olympics.

    The real question is: How many of us can even afford those tickets?

    The other thing is, if you live in the US, you have to go through the official ticket broker of the USOC, we won't be able to just buy tickets directly through VANOC. And usually they don't sell tickets individually, you have to buy a package, and they usually suck too and are pricey

    Unbelievably pricey, but so unique, they don't have a problem selling out many events. When I went to the Athens 2004 closing ceremony, I hated myself for spending $850 PER TICKET (plus "processing fees up the ... well, you know), until I got there -- being in that crowd in the home of the Olympic Games was very touching and a once in a lifetime experience.

    When I took my wife to the Torino Winter Games in 2006, we spent over $300 per ticket to see ice skating, but she really enjoyed it also. It's just the price to play - everything in the olympic cities is more expensive during the olympics, but the atmosphere is wonderful, and in my opinion, worth it.

    See you in Bejing...
