I couldn't believe it when i went to the tourney at Metra this weekend and it cost my wife and I $24 to get into a high school basketball game. Really?

Can I afford it? Yes. But it just seems to me that they are starting to price a lot of people out of the tourney.The crowds are proof of that.

I remember the tourneys back in the 80s and 90s; the place was full on Friday and Saturday nights no matter who was there.

Would you rather have 2,500 people there at $12 dollars or 8,000 people there at 5 bucks, plus revenue from refreshments.

Seems like a no-brainer to me.
