Seating Dilemma

The Bobby Cox Tribute Night (Saturday, October 2, 2010) game against the Philadelphia Phillies (who we will, naturally, crush) appears to be sold out.  I haven't yet contacted Ticketmaster to see if this is true, but there don't appear to be any tickets left.  So I looked over at StubHub.

Did you know that there are people trying to sell their Upper Box seats for $50 a pop?  Are you out of your mind, seller?  That's nonsense.  Why in the world would I pay fifty bucks for this:
when I can pay $20 for this:

or this?:

Anyhow, any opinions?  Should I go to the game, or should I stay home and watch it on tv??  I like crowds, but... then again, I really hate crowds.  (big crowds cheering for the home-team = excellent; being in a sea of people, totally surrounded = not cool)

I think you should go! I'm not a huge fan of people either, but I did go out for the Red Sox World Series win in 2004, game four. It was totally worth it, and it sounds like this could be another event you'll remember a lot better if you're surrounded by people who will properly appreciate it. I'm guessing you're not going to be surrounded by a ton of casual fans on a night like that.

You know what? You're right. Now, I get to figure out... picture 2? or picture 3? (picture 1 is out of the question because I'm not paying $50 for the upper deck)
