Welcome to From the Cheap Seats!


FTCS is a sports column for the real fans...the fans that scrape together their budget to justify season tickets in the second to last row.  It's easy to find commentary from sports writers that get free tickets to the press box or the first row on the 50-yard line.  But these thoughts are coming from me...and chances are I'm sitting right beside you in the cheap seats. 


I encourage you to send in any suggestions/feedback/comments.  But most importantly I encourage suggestions for article topics...after all, this is a site for us--the real fans!
