Tickets.
And no, I'm not talking about the kind you get from the police officer who just happened to flag you down for going 30 miles per hour over the speed limit.
I'm talking about the kind of tickets you purchase for, well, for just about anything.
Some are easy to get.
Some are not so easy to get.
In this article we'll discuss a few of each type.
The easy to get tickets.
For the most part, movie tickets are pretty easy to get.
As a matter of fact for a flick that's a real dog you'll probably get a ticket at a reduced cost and forget about having to wait in a line and getting a good seat.
The movie house will probably be empty and you can park yourself right up front if you like.
Of course for some movies like when "Harry Potter - The Goblet Of Fire" comes out you'll probably have to stand in a line several blocks long.
In that case advance tickets are probably a good idea and you'll pay top dollar for them.
Then there are tickets small local playhouses.
Unlike the big city like New York, these tickets are usually pretty easy to get and fairly reasonable in price.
Rarely though will you be able to get them at the door and will still have to purchase them in advance.
The not so easy to get tickets.
And there are plenty of them.
Probably some of the hardest tickets to get are for professional football games in the United States.
The New York Giants football team is a perfect example of this.
The waiting list to get season tickets is years.
Don't even try to buy one for a single game.
That animal just doesn't even exist.
You literally have to wait for someone to die to get these tickets.
Then there's baseball tickets.
They're a little easier especially if your team isn't that good but even then the price is astronomical.
Tickets for a New York Yankees baseball game can run you $40 for seats where you can barely see the action.
Looking for box seats behind first base?You're looking at a price tag of hundreds of dollars.
Hockey tickets are pretty bad too.
A seat for the New Jersey Devils about mid way in the stands is about $60.
And these have to be purchased months in advance.
Basketball tickets are another nightmare that you have to wait until somebody dies to get.
Courtside tickets for the New York Knicks run about $1,000 a pop.
Yes, you read correctly.
That's why you only see people like Jack Nicholson sitting courtside.
Tickets that are a little easier to get are Broadway play tickets.
You'll still need to purchase these in advance and they are very expensive.
A good Broadway play will run you an easy $100 a seat unless you get them in a group rate.
In the next article in this series we're going to go over the various ways you can get tickets for these events.
