This guy just gets more bizarre with every newscast. :-? :-? :-? :roll: :roll: this is getting very freaky. I don't like these things played out in the press. If he did do it, he is doing a very good job confusing the public. If he didn't he is even a bigger dirtbag than the person that actually co...

This is the only Buffett show where the scalpers lose money. Perhaps the tickets are priced correctly to match supply with demand?

have you checked Delta? You will have a connection but they seem to be pretty cheap out of PGH. I booked my flights the day the arrests were made in London. Prices were $50 lower that day. I flew Southwest - once, never again. If you have flights early in the day and show up early, probably not too ...

Check SKYPE. There is no 911 service with VoIP. We mucked our land line service last year and use strictly cell phones.

The cheap seats are not bad at all for the price. The arena is a giant oval. The sight lines are good. It is a great time no matter where you sit.

Planning my first trip to see Jimmy in Vegas. I was looking at the seating chart and noticed that there are different ones for different performers. Anyone know what type of seating chart to look at for MGM. Do they use the normal end stage setup Thanks Stage is set up on the end. All seats are good.

Old stadiums Wrigley, Yankee and Fenway are the best, each has something about it that makes baseball special. New stadiums, Camden Yards gets my vote. It was the prototype for all the new stadiums that replaced the multi-purpose toilet bowl stadiums. In addition to being a wonderful stadium, the fa...

It depends on where you stay and what you want to do. Weekend rates in LV get high on the strip. Forget MGM they bump their rates and most promo rates are not accepted that weekend. Strip prices are $125 and up for weekends. Excalubur is probably one of the lowest the property is also older and show...

It could be that the person wants to go and that price is what he would accept to miss the show. I have sold some prime seats in the past to other events for outrageous money. It all depends on your priorities and perspective. What might be 5 months income to one person could be one hand of blackjac...
