Bloggers beware! If you write anything negative about ticket scalpers, they will write you scathing emails! Watch out for Higs, he’s a family friendly bad ass!
As a result of a certain article published on this site (The Wisdom Tooth of Red Sox Nation: Ticket Scalping), I got a nasty email from Higs Cityside Tickets themselves.
Here is the email verbatim (with expletives altered of course, who would have thought such a family friendly business would resort to so many curse words?)
I hope this email finds you, not well. I recently had your blog posting on RedSoxSuperFan.com forwarded to me and just got through reading your overly derogatory remarks regarding our operation here at Higs Tickets. I’m not sure why of all ticket scalpers you singled us out. Calling me brazzen? We facilitate dreams buddy. We sell to those who want and can afford. So f*** you, F*** your contributor Sean Caulfield, and f*** your blog, it sucks.
PS - The poker references were quite childish and downright stupid.
Sounds like the guy I want to buy my tickets from! Really Jim, you facilitate dreams? I’d say that is a description better served for the Make-a-Wish Foundation or the Jimmy Fund. You facilitate your own dreams of expensive scotch, boats and gas guzzling SUVs.
Currently, Higs’ cheapest ticket is selling for $330 - an upper bleachers ticket that sells for $12 during the regular season. That’s only 2,650% more! Don’t play the moral card with me, your job is to rip people off. End of Story.
