Pendulum swings

This first exhibition game with the Yankees is sold out - and tickets are being scalped at many multiples of face value - for a game that Damon and Jeter say they will not even attend. How long ago was it - 2-3-4 years - when you could fly down to Ft. Myers for a weekend and pick up tickets at the gate?
It is nice to see the pendulum swing our way for once, but I'd just as soon see it swing back a little from the extreme. Get too high, go too low for a damn exhibition game.
Great satirical piece, by the way, by Kenny Mayne on the importance of this game to the players. Saw it on ESPN last night.
