I haven’t written much about the sports ticket bubble lately (though there’s plenty to comment on, including the Pittsburgh Pirates‘ no-fee week and some impressively low StubHub prices for the New York Liberty). If you’ve been wanting an overview of the lay of the deflating-ticket-price land and what it could mean for the sports industry, check out my new article on the same in Slate.
On a related note, I’ll be on ESPN 1080 in Orlando at 10:05 am tomorrow (Friday), talking about my Nation article and the Slate article. If you’re in Orlando, tune in on your radio; if not, use the streaming doohickey.
Just a note that I’ll be on 830 WCCO in Minneapolis for 10-15 minutes this morning starting at 9:35 Central time, talking about the Minnesota Vikings stadium situation. Tune in online, or via one of those radio things if you’re actually in the Twin Cities.
Quick programming note: I’ll be appearing on Minnesota Public Radio today in the 9 to 10 am hour (Central time &mdash that’s 10 to 11 Eastern), discussing the Minnesota Vikings stadium situation. Ted Mondale, the state official appointed to lead the push to build a new stadium, will be another guest, so expect fireworks, or at least some heated debate.
Those of you who actually live in Minnesota and listen to old-fashioned radios, I assume you know what channel to turn to. For everyone else, you can listen online here.
I’m going to be on 1010 AM CBS Sports Radio in Tampa Bay this afternoon from 4:05 to 4:20 pm, discussing the Rays stadium mess. If you’re not in the Tampa area, you can still listen live online; I’ve been promised that the show will be a “debate” on the Rays’ situation, so I’ll be bringing my back hump.
UPDATE: This has been rescheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, May 4, same time and station.
A quick programming note: I’m scheduled to appear on Rob Breakenridge’s show on CHQR radio in Calgary tonight, starting at 8:05 pm Mountain (10:05 Eastern); listeners elsewhere should be able to tune in via the web stream. Not sure what we’ll be talking about, but this is a pretty good bet, as is the ongoing Phoenix Coyotes imbroglio.
No joke this time: Barring A-Rod getting caught eating baby seals or something, I’ll be on ESPN Radio tonight at 8:25 pm Eastern to talk about stadiums and the economy.
Then on Friday, at the ungodly hour of 6:30 am Eastern, I’ll be on WBAI-FM in New York to specifically talk about the new Yankees and Mets stadiums.
Both shows will be streamed live online, and I’ll post any archives here as well.
I’m scheduled to be on ESPN Radio’s Brian Kenny Show on Monday, starting at 8:27 pm Eastern time and running till 8:34 or something. The topic: “sports and the economy,” which is sure to touch on the Citi Field deal. You can listen on your local ESPN Radio affiliate, or just click on the web stream here.
UPDATE: My interview was postponed because of the A-Rod thing. I’ll post here if and when it’s rescheduled.
