As I previously noted, the cheapest tickets are sold out, and only expensive tickets are left (Judd Zulgad says there are $80 tickets remaining, but at a Ticketmaster location I was told all remaining tickets were $120 or more. Either way, the point is the same).
I wonder how many other fans want to go to the game but are unable or unwilling to pay $120 to do so. It is not that there aren't a bunch of fans that want to go to the game, but that there aren't enough fans willing to pay a high price to do so.
Now that the weekend is here, I'm more optimistic the game will sell out. Perhaps a fair number of people didn't want to commit to the game too far in advance (holiday plans, Minnesota weather), but will be ready to now that the weekend is upon us. Still, $120 is a lot of money (today I was setting up an outing to the game with some family and friends, but we balked at the high price of tickets).
