Completely off topic, but I paid about $200 for a Saturday evening ticket at the US Open a couple of years ago. It was supposed to start at 7pm

The afternoon session had a mammoth 5 setter (Roddick against someone), and didn't finish until 9:30pm.

So, I got to my seat at 10pm, and then had to watch some crappy presentation to the family of some tennis star who'd died about 20 years earlier.

The tennis started at 10:40pm, and I had to leave at 11:00 to get the last train back
