Noticing the hordes of folk heading to a Cubs came the other evening, I realized not only would I not pay a cent to go to a major league baseball game, but someone would have to pony up considerable coin for me to agree to go.
So I was wondering, what types of activities that seem to be pretty popular among other folk would you need to be paid to participate in. To the extent possible, try to estimate how much you would need to be paid.
For me, if someone gave me Cubs tickets and covered my transportation costs, I’d probably blow off a day of work and go to a game for $100 or so. Probably $200 for a night game, just because getting home late at night would be a hassle. For me to piss away a major portion of a weekend day at a ballpark would take at least $500. And if the weather was cold or rainy, you have to at least double all of those prices - maybe more.
