$40 to park downtown? We are not kidding

Remember when we all thought that paying $10 for event parking was outrageous? Those were sweet innocent days.

The Star reported that several lots near the Sprint Center were charging $40 to park for the entire day (a bargain $20 if you leave by 5 p.m.). Someone else is going to have to finish this post because my head just exploded. Uh, that's more than I paid for a dead-center court ticket to Wednesday's opening session of the Big 12 men's basketball tournament. And it was in the lower-level -- 17th row.



Star reporter Dave Helling talked with parking attendants who said most people weren't complaining at all. Hell, I'll offer up my parking space near The Pitch for $40.

Would you pay $40 to park at an event? And if so, what would that event be? I wouldn't pay that much to see the Second Coming. WrestleMania XXVII, maybe.
