Fenway Paaaaaahhhk

edited February 2016 in The Porch
Things are different now, but for most of my childhood and younger adult life, I was relentlessly tormented and then brutally disappointed by the main occupants of Fenway Park. By paying attention, I stumbled into the day early Fenway 1 ticket purchase and subsequent 8 hour later cancellation by tickets.com. I tried to get them at the proper time but was white screened and was shut out. Just to rub my nose in it...4 days later I'm still looking at the 212.85 livenation charge on my debit card. I also have an email confirmation from the Boston Red Sox ticket office, but no tickets.

This may be the most frustrating thing the Boston Red Sox have ever done to me, next to retiring the number of Wade effing Boggs. Seriously...Wade Boggs. The same Wade Boggs who, dressed in pinstripes no less, rode a pony around Yankee Stadium. Just my opinion but he shouldn't even be let into Fenway Park with a ticket, let alone be immortalized alongside Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Johnny Pesky, and Jim Ed Rice. The frustration's up there with Billy Buckner, the 75 Reds, Roger Clemens leaving, see ya later Nomaaaah, the Chuck Knoblauch phantom tag, and Bucky F. Dent.

I mean, Jesus.

I moved away from New England at the end of 2002. The Red Sox have only had success while I've been gone. The closest I came to reveling in any glory was walking around New York city in a fitted B cap in October 21st 2004, the day after the Yankees epic up 3 game to nothing collapse. I surely went to no duck boat parades, saw no pennants being raised, I haven't even been in the ballpark for over 15 years. This SHOULD have been my triumphant return.

So I'm still looking for 2 together in the building for Fenway 1. They don't have to be fancy, just together.
PM me if you can hook a brother up.

    Dude you made a mistake on purchasing the tickets.(wrong name or email) I did it too if your credit card number was charged they will have your tickets under file. Call them. Unless it's something else and your completely screwed. It worked for me tho

    Place the blame on tickets.com, not the Sawx. They were the ones who screwed up and put the tickets for sale a day early. Most of MLB uses tickets.com, unfortunately. But I completely understand your frustrations! Tickets.com should own up to their mistake and honor every single ticket purchased in the early sale, whether the sale was a mistake or not. That's just bad business not to. They're going to lose a lot of customers. Give them a call like pawlowski said, you never know.

    Otherwise, bump to help out!

    I'm still not entirely convinced we didn't stumble upon an insider opening up the sale early for a scalper business partner.

    I do blame it on tickets.com ... but getting the confirmation email from ticketoffice@redsox.com, it seemed like additional weight came with it.

    Great post. I appreciate the passion for your city, team and band.

    But as a Yankee fan, I would happily choose a three game collapse everyday of the week over the 86 years of futility the Red Sox endured. 27 world championships... Deal with it :smiley:

    OP, keep an eye on redsox.com. it's not uncommon for additional tickets to drop. The resale market may drop too as the dates get closer.

    Good luck finding tickets for night 1.

    I don't know man. 86 years never gets brought up anymore. Anytime a team is up 3-0 in a playoff series, inevitably, the Yankees collapse gets brought up.

    But, I don't think Yankee fans need to worry about anything. Even if most fans my age only have been alive for 5-7 of the 27, that's still way more than most.

    I'm going to raise you 5 World Series titles and many epic shows at Randall's Island and MSG.

    Don't get me wrong.... The three titles are a nice starter set for a franchise. But we may be posting about PJ50 before you guys hit double digits.

    That MAY be the greatest play by a shortstop, if not an infielder, in all of baseball's history.

    Honestly I'm not blindly anti Yankee, I'm pro good baseball. I am however quite anti A-Rod AND anti Wade Boggs too, that beer swilling, everyday chicken eating, only padding his stats, doubled up pony riding, opposite field slap hitter.
