first_imgWhat are you going to do with your weekend sport time?  At this time of the year, the NBA is already in their basketball season, the NFL has still more than two months left with football games, the NCAA has both basketball and football right now with basketball starting and football winding down.  Just in case this hasn’t caught your eye the high school winter seasons are already underway or will be in the next 10 days.  That adds girls basketball, boys basketball, swimming, and wrestling to the sports menu.  With all of these things going on, the pro sports paid no attention to any other of these sports as they fill the TV schedules with games.  Football in college used to be played only on Saturday, but for television revenues they will play any time, any where.  This leaves high school sports fighting for their revenue checks.  The only thing the high schools have going in their favor is that you can get into all of these for less than $10 a ticket, and some of them as low as $5 a ticket.  The NCAA and pro sports consider low price tickets where the first number of three is a one.  You are lucky to get a pro ticket (or some college tickets) for $100.  At least at many high schools fixed-income adults get in for a very reduced price; whereas, in the other sports, they don’t care if you are 1 year old or 100, the ticket price is the same.last_img read more
