Groupon, the site that offers “50 to 90 percent” discounts on everyday services and goods has a deal for you.
In a nutshell (as they say), for the mere price of $30,000 one bidder will get to:
Throw out the first pitch at a Cubs game; the experience includes a personal suite for you & 13 friends, a tour of Wrigley & memorabilia.
Other add-ons include a full Cubs uniform and your very own press conference. Sorry guys, DOB won’t be there. The Cubs face the Milwaukee Brewers that day – 1:30 pm. start.
The Cubs – who we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention have not won a World Series in more than 100 years … and counting – are in the midst of a downturn. The team is fifth in the NL Central and its average attendance swirls around 30,000. Hmm, wonder if that’s how they came up with the price?
There are still eight days left to pool your pennies and take a advantage of “the deal”. Portions of the sale go to charity, no mention whether it’s tax deductible.
