The worst Christmas present ever!

I've been quite the downer why stop now?

Today the Cubs announced ticket packages for the holiday season.

This is the first time I can ever remember them doing something like this.

My question is, who the hell would actually want a Cubs ticket package for Christmas (or Hanukkah or whatever)

Last year, I couldn't give tickets away. I'm not sure why demand would have changed.

I can just see it now...

"Merry Christmas mom and dad! Here are tickets to watch a crappy, overpaid baseball team, in a crappy, cramped, cruddy stadium with crappy over priced souvenirs and concessions. Don't worry, parking will only cost you $35 for each game as well."

It's the gift that keeps on taking.

Oh...and don't worry, all the games are rather blah match-ups anyway to make it all worth while.

And if you wanted to get your loved ones good seats with this deal...too bad. They can sit in the bleachers and get beer dumped on their head (or get into a fight), sit in the back of the lower deck behind all the support beams, or bring a gas mask and sit in the 500 section of the upper deck.

Anyway, if you want to buy this package for someone you love (or hate) can go here.
