A Sun-Times report places estimates for Chicago 2016 tickets as high as $950 for the opening ceremonies.
I find it strange that Chicago 2016 brass aren’t publicizing ticket costs. Then again, I’d be surprised if they actually want people from Chicago attending Olympic events.
If it ends up that Chicagoans (and Illinoisians) have to foot the bill, they should at least get some sort of hometown discount for tickets to the Games. Even if it were 10 percent or so, we’d know that the Chicago 2016 committee actually cares about us.
Who’s with me?
