Any season ticket holder can tell you how scary it is when they start to wonder if they can afford their season tickets for next year. It doesn’t matter that they could skip a year and pick them up the following season. They might miss that unexpected playoff run….but more importantly, they lose their seat.
I’ve been a season ticket holder with my father since 2000, and our seats are OUR seats, and not just because we’re charter seat members. They are home. Sure, I enjoy sitting all over the park at times (including one glorious day as a credentialed media member in the press box, and a weekend as the pitch-count scoreboard operator), but the important moments have all happened in our seats. Records and championships, with both friends and family.
I found I’m less attached to my car than I am to my Giants seats.
