Detroit Tigers vs Tampa Bay Rays; Or, Rays no-no




Hey guys, I created a facebook event but in case I missed anyone I am trying to put a group together to go to the Tigers vs Rays game on July 26. I know many of you have expressed interest but I want to try to get tickets this week so I'm asking for some commitment! Not sure it includes anything but if 20 people commit I would be willing to put down the 50% deposit. It is non-refundable though so if you want to go let me know! Otherwise we are looking at tickets in the Party Deck that would be $11 a ticket. Post if your interested and haven't replied on the Facebook event. Can't wait, it'd be super fun of course and a great way to recover from Savannah! Hope to see you all soon! And it's Bull's birthday!

I'd be careful with the loge box seats. Those are under the overhang of the club level and if you get stuck towards the back it's a pretty awkward view of the game.

My Rays-haw recommendation: buy the cheapest tickets possible and move the group down to the first level to the inevitable mass of empty seats. It's a Monday night game against a team that typically doesn't have fans showing up in droves. I don't think most of my fellow Rays fans will be showing up for weeknight playoff race games until at least mid-August, either.

I'll be at the game either way. Let me do some research later tonight as I might be able to make some ticket magic happen. I'll keep you posted.

How many are you expecting, Maria?

Chandler said...

I have to agree with JW on this one. Cheapest tickets possible... move down to the Rays bullpen.

There should be 10-15, JW.

Jack said...

We could get well beyond 12-15 if yall want to. The group rate for cheap upper deck seats is probably $8 a pop.

Also, where's the grammar police? I saw an improper "your" in there.

Chandler said...

Maria is a lost cause with the "your" vs. "you're." So is Teneille and SarahBukkake

Maria said...

Haha where did I use a your / you're?
Anyways, yea 10-15 cheap tickets is fine with me! I just wanna see my Tigers Play Ball while they are in town! Thanks Rays-haw let me know!

Smithkey said...

I cant make that game Maria but if you plan on going to the game on the 28th let me know.

Jack said...

"Post if your interested and haven't replied on the Facebook event."

Boom.

Ticket magic can't happen that game, but I will let DPT know when it does. If we want to combine forces, I bet a DPT/Rays-haw alliance could easily get 20 folks, and probably more. I don't think we've had fewer than 40 when it's happened before. I'll ask a couple friends, you might even get a Tiger buddy in there.

Maria said...

Alright I have another guy to call to inquire about group tickets too. People don't seem to be volunteering to go so obviously I don't know enough people to get 40 like you JW.

Chandler said...

Maria... you got me and JW going. Who else do you need?

bull said...

And me

Jack said...

Happy birthday, bull. I'm sure all you've ever wanted is to spend time with me, Chandler, and Maria at a Rays-Tigers game.

Nate's in, too, btw. I know BEARDFACE will go. Maybe that announcement will encourage others to join in. Most DPTers haven't gotten a good dose of BEARDFACE in months.

I would say set a deadline for the 18th and call the tickets in on the 19th. Let's see how the numbers look then. If a block of tickets wasn't tough to get for boston games, it won't be tough for detroit games either.

Chris said...

I clicked the "attending" button on the facebook invite. Maybe Bull's birthday is the day the two of us attempt the burger challenge at the stadium.

Alison said...

Did someone say BEARDFACE?!?

I'm in for the 26th. I also vote for the proposed cheap seats.

bull said...

What is this burger challenge nonsense you speak of?

Chandler said...

"At the Centerfield Brewhouse they offer a "fan versus food challenge": 2 pounds of burger, four slices of American cheese, half-pound of bacon, 1 pound of fries ($29.98). Finish it all and you get two free tickets to a Rays game."

You get like 30 minutes to finish it. You also get a picture on the wall.

bull said...

Pretty sure I got that

haha

Nate Dawg said...

Hmmmm I would at least like to watch if I dont compete...

Red Headed Step-Child said...

Allison
Nate
Bill
Souder
Dawn

Karen
That's only 11, I know JW already has tickets. So now what?

bull said...

So we get party deck tixs and show up early so you can watch Chris, Nate, Chandler, JW, Beardface and myself do the burger challenge. And eat birthday cake...someone bring birthday cake.
