Last Wednesday, the BF and I went to the Warriors vs. Nuggets game at Oracle Arena.
If you’ve been following me for a little bit, you probably already know that we are huuuuge Warriors fans! You would also might know that we usually like to buy our tickets last minute on StubHub (not affiliated) to save money.
Well, something has happened starting last season/going into this season and it’s incredibly bittersweet. The Warriors have been getting good. Like, really good.
Obviously, this is an awesome thing for us Warriors fans! Our team is finally getting the recognition it deserves, not only here in the Bay Area – but also all around the US. The last road trip they went on, there were Warriors fans at every city they went to!
The reason why I say this is bittersweet is because now – tickets are expensive. My friend and I joked about how now that the Warriors are really good, the real fans can’t afford to watch them! It’s the “bandwagoners” that have driven prices up and can actually afford to go and watch.
Last season, the BF and I bought lower level tickets for $8 each! We scored those tickets last minute, literally a couple of hours before the game stated. Last Wednesday, we paid around $35 each for upper level tickets and we bought those tickets two weeks ahead of time. If we had waited until the day of, we would have paid $50 each! Granted, we did get a free bobblehead of Harrison Barnes, but still! Knowing that we paid much more to have worse seats just isn’t fun.
