New York, NY--After negotiations between the NBA owners and the players union disintegrated to the point where many believe the 2011-12 season is all but lost, Knicks season ticket holder Bryce Collins lamented openly of how much he’ll miss charging true fans exorbitant prices for nosebleed seats.
“The atmosphere in the Garden is incomparable,” bemoaned Collins, whose season tickets were a gift passed down from his grandfather. “The history, the crowd, and now a team with real star power, I’m really going to miss using it all as leverage to extort genuine fans.” Collins later added that without his soiled Stub Hub profits, he may be forced to find a part time job. A prospect not nearly as dire, however, as the loss of the his beloved con.
“It wasn’t so much the money, though not having to work was nice. What I loved most was the rush," said Collins. "The power of possessing something people want passionately, it’s like ransoming them for their first born, which, come to think of it, may be a good option for a part time gig."
