Had Texans season tickets for their first year. Also had a mini-season package for the Rockets in 93-94 when they won their first title. Of course the success led them to kick up the prices around 30% the next year so I passed.

Redskins, but I only go to about 3 games per year and sell/ebay the rest of the games.

I might get G-Town hoops season tickets this season.

I've bought season tickets for BC football a few years. Trying to get Pats or Red Sox season tickets is pretty much a fantasy unless you already have them or know someone who does.

Was on the Bears wait list about 10 years ago and got called up about 4-5 years ago as they were building the new stadium. I passed for a variety of reasons (none of which included the PSL).

I am currently on the Cubs season ticket wait list. My number is pretty low -- less than 3,000, so I expect a phone call in the next 2-3 consecutive losing seasons.

Been on the Patriots wait list for 4 years now, I think it's a expected wait list of about 12 years, so I'm not even halfway. If nothing it makes getting tickets to the games, and other events easier.

However, at this rate I'll be able to have them to take my kids, which I also don't have at the moment

I purchased (for the first time) Blazers season tickets the day after we won the #1 pick.

Do most of you season ticket holders for sports like basketball or baseball, where there are multiple games a week, make it to most games, or do you give away or share tickets a lot of the time.

I've contemplated buying Clippers season tickets for a while (we usually go to around 15 home games buying packages and such)... but I don't think I'd be able to make it to every game, and I live pretty close to Staples center. Although maybe if they were actually winning, it'd be a different story.

Nope. Only sports I'd do would be WVU football and Basketball if I lived close enough.

I went with the full season ticket package to have playoff rights and other special perks (like player meet & greets and free get-togethers). I'll be selling anywhere from 15-20 of the 44 games (3 preseason included) I have tickets for.

I've put down my deposit for Sharks season tickets. This'll be the first year. I plan on attending every game.

I'm in a rather large group for SJ Sharks tix. Only get about 6-7 games a year.

The only season tickets I would consider getting, Miami Hurricanes football, will have to wait until either I move closer to Miami or gas prices come way down. Other than that, none of the local teams interest me enough. I did buy one of those 20 game packages for the Devil Rays a few years ago. I might do that again.

I bet those were a pretty penny.

For me....Los Angeles Lakers- NBA. And sometimes I wonder why I ever bother I renew every year.

BTW - how do they handle preseason games in the NBA and NHL - if you buy a full plan do you have to buy the preseason games as well like in the NFL?

I'm pretty sure they do that in the NHL. I believe the season package for the sharks includes 44 games. I'm assuming 3 of them are preseason.
