What a day yesterday was, am I right? I was one of the hundreds of Texans fans who descended on Bud Plaza last night to welcome our team home as AFC South Champions, and I was one of those hundreds who bought AFC South Champions merchandise from the Go Texans Store. And as the elation of yesterday's events has slowly started to subside and I looked forward to the next game, I noticed a comment from someone earlier today that the merchandise I bought last night was being sold for significantly less on the Texans' website. In some places, up to half as expensive.
I did the math and found that I'd paid over 35% more than the list price online for my shirt and hat.
WHAT. THE. FUCK?
On a night where everyone was eager to celebrate the Texans' clinching of the division, the organization responds by jacking up its prices to take advantage of a fan base that has been waiting 20 years to see playoff football at home in Houston once more?
Maybe I'm overreacting here, but does anyone else think that's fucked up?
If so, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know. I did.
