When I saw this on a BBC site I thought I would have a look expecting to be shocked by the amount the youngsters of today do spend but allowing for inflation the amount was rather lower than I expected. When I used to go out on the rasol some years ago now I expected to get away with spending a couple of fivers and usual no more unless there was food and taxis to pay for. Yes that was a long time ago married now over 45 years.
The figures that I'm seeing quoted by some wouldn't even cover parking in many a city.
When I was in London and went out in the capital or various boroughs. The parking could run anything from £5-20 for the night. Now with the congestion charge, charge for diesel emissions etc. it would be more expensive than ever.
Still all cheaper than a day out at a sporting event.
I went to watch a basketball game last year. The tickets for seats quite a distance from the action were $70.
A small plastic cup of beer and a slice of pizza came up to $25. The same franchise that they have in the stadium is on the outside and what they charge for a slice literally gets you a whole pizza on the outside.
Want a t-shirt with the team logo on it to remember your visit? That'll be $50. And don't get me started on the price of the official kits. You can buy a good graphics card for your PC and have change left over for a game to show it off.
