What are you willing to pay?

My kids enjoy going to concerts.

I went to a couple and needed binoculars to see the stage.

For me to get a good seat is way to expensive.

I am not saying that they are not worth it, I wold prefer to buy a new fishing rod.

The US Figure Skating Finals are in St. Paul, Minnesota.  The good seats going for around $150.

Now, I am not that much into skating, but my wife loves it.

All of the good tickets are gone so, although I offered she said no...not worth the money for marginal seats.

Now, If I take and replaced skating with my favorite band for the same seating would I go...

NO!  The fishing rod will win out.

But for those that enjoy that I am glad...keeps my lakes less busy
