GH: America's weird obsession with sports memorabilia is another clear sign that some people have more money than taste.
"This is not a knee-jerk reaction. This is part of an ongoing effort ... something that we'd been working on for a while. We have a number of promotions and programs, and this is one of them."

, Pittsburgh Pirates spokeswoman, after the Pirates dropped the price of some seats and had to send out rebates to season ticket holders who had already purchased similar seats, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Post-Gazette reports that as of April 11, the Pirates had sold 10,100 season tickets this year, about 40 percent less than the record-setting 17,000 it sold last year for the team's first season at PNC Park. Total sales to date are $1.16 million, well below last season's record $2.4 million. PNC Park is only one year old, and already its season-ticket sales are less than what the Royals sold last year in a 32-year-old park. The idea that a new baseball stadium will solve revenue problems for the Royals and other small-market franchises is nothing more than another MLB myth.
"why is everyone trippin' on 810?
