Thinking warm thoughts, Phils tickets

Tix to see the defending champs will go on sale over the next couple months, depending on what you're seeking

Thinking warm thoughts, Phils tickets

It's cold, Thanksgiving night and the Eagles are on the tube. 

So what better time to post a few of the Phillies ticket dates to circle on your calendar? Season-ticket packages have been on sale for the past several weeks. Six Game Packs will go on sale Dec. 10, sales for groups of 25 or more will go on sale Jan. 14, 2009, and individual game tickets become available a little more than a month later, on Feb. 19.

A chance to register online for the home opener and next year's series against the Red Sox will be announced at a later time.

For anyone planning to head to Florida for any of the Grapefruit League games, season tickets for spring training already are on sale. Three-game packs will become available Dec. 18 and tickets for individual games in Clearwater, Fla., will go on sale Jan. 8, 2009.

About this blog
Paul Vigna still has the seat he wrestled out of the concrete at Connie Mack Stadium parked in the finished basement, a 1980 Phillies championship mirror hanging above it. Now, why he’s kept an autograph of former Flyer Bruce Gamble on a sheet of Hockey Hall of Fame paper is another story. A native of Philly who grew up in Lansdale, he’s an assistant sports editor at the Daily News in charge of special projects who has written two columns related to sports and consumers: View From the Seats and Savvy Consumer.

Athletic contests were, for a long time, simply fun and games. Nowadays they’re just a small part of a sports entertainment industry that puts billions of dollars into play and a number of issues into motion. Moneyball indeed. You might be closer to the action than ever before, but that privilege comes at a price - and often it’s beyond what you can afford.

With that as the backdrop we’ll use this blog to dig out stories and swap advice about how the fan experience is changing and what it’s costing you now and in the future. Some of it will educate, some will let you vent. And in a sports panel format, it should allow for a consensus of opinion that can carry some weight.
