Mikey Boy Brown is so excited about last season that the Bengals just announced they will be raising ticket prices for the 2010 season! Single-game tickets will be raised $3 per game for seats in the field level and convertible club and $1 per game for the canopy level and second-level end zone. The average ticket price for 2010 will be $73.34, compared to $71.04 last season.
That doesn't sound like much, but if you do some basic back of the napkin calculations you see that this adds up to approximately 377,770 more Denny's Grand Slams for Mikey Boy, per year.
Here is how we came to that calculation:
Average ticket price increase of $2.30.
Capacity in Paul Brown Stadium of 65,535
10 home games (2 pre-season and 8 home games).
Grand Slam Cost: $3.99
$2.30 x 65,535 x 10 = $1,507,305/$3.99 = 377,770.7 more grand slams per year for Mikey!
