It seems like just yesterday Citizens Bank Park was the place to be. Tickets to every game could only be obtained on the secondary market and the Phillies were enjoying a boom at the box office like never before. Oh how the times have changed.
The Phillies, desperate for people to attend games, have turned to the deal-of-the-day website Groupon to try and get some customers back. For the low (or maybe high depending on who you talk to) price of $8.50 you can take in a Phillies game on either May 8, May 13th, or May 16th. The Phillies take on the Mets on May 8, Pittsburgh on the 13th, and Arizona on the 16th.
Our own Natalie Egenolf had a great point on her twitter account, pointing out this move is the modern day tickets in the hot dog wrapper.
Tickets on groupon are the modern day version of tickets on hot dog packages.

If you do want to take advantage of this great (?) opportunity you better hurry! The deal ends in a little over 10 hours.
