Packer season tickets… THAT MUCH CLOSER

Taking a break from excessively annoying to people who don’t follow baseball exciting Brewers news…

From GreenBayPressGazette.com:

 Stock sale possible to help Green Bay Packers fund 6,600-seat Lambeau Field expansion Packers are adding 6,600 seats to Lambeau. This is good for me two reasons: 1. There will be a nice dent in my season ticket waiting list number by 6,600 (now at 44,467), and 2. I might get a chance to be a Packer shareholder if they decide to sell more worthless stock to fund this! Then I can put “Attend Packer Shareholder Meeting” on my bucket list. Here’s my latest Packer season ticket waiting list graph:

Since I’ve been reading a lot of Advanced NFL stats (I love constantly looking back at win probability chart of the Superbowl and seeing the “100% win probability for the Pack at the end of it), and since I’ve been trying to fill the football void, I decided to try to figure out being more aggressive was the right move or not for baseball. read more
