Capitalism at work

I'm going to visit my cousin in DC in the middle of October and decided to get some tickets to see the Eagles play the Redskins.  I got on StubHub since they have a great selection and a convenient process.  I found some seats just a few rows up the field and bought them.  They're expensive, but that's too be expected.  The tickets came this afternoon and see that they were marked up 152%!  Crikey.  I'm definitely in the wrong racket.

However, it doesn't really bother me because I had the opportunity to pay less to sit further away.  I only make it to a few sporting events per year so I don't mind shellin' out.  It just sucks to see by how much you got gouged.  At least I got a parking pass.
