The Family Entertainment Dollar

July 1, 2014
By

What does your family like to do for recreation in the field of sports?  Can you afford to go to more than one Reds ball game a year?  Do you have Bengal or Colts tickets or do you like pro-basketball, such as the Pacers and the Fever?

No matter which one of these is your favorite, a calculated guess is that a family of four cannot go to one of these for less than a couple hundred dollars unless you are able to take in the Cincinnati Reds’ Sunday Family Special.  That truly is still a bargain.

When I was a kid, you could take your own snacks into the games.  Now you are lucky if you can get into the game with your purse (if you are a lady).  Coolers are a thing of the past.  This means you are subject to their concessions which are at least double the price of normal everyday outlets.

This has made taking the family to a great, wholesome outing a once-a-season event at best.  For a good portion of the working public, I doubt that they can do it even once.
