Here in Hamilton I share a pair of season tickets with my son . The problem though is that I don't have a cell phone and the tickets are both downloaded on his . He used to just print off my ticket and drop it off to me before the
game and I would meet him there .
Now with it going paperless the problem is that he's coming from the West end of the city to the THF and I'm coming in from the East end of the city . So now if I get to the park before him I have to wait until he shows up in order to gain entrance through the gates .
Another problem was that for convenience for gameday I usually just ride the city bus because luckily I have a bus stop right across the street from my house . On game day they have the Ti-Cat express which basically lets you ride to the game for free as long as you have a ticket . Well there was a few games last year (2019) where I'd run into a strictly by the rule book driver who wouldn't let me on the bus because I couldn't produce a ticket to show them as proof that I was going to the game even though I was dressed head to toe in team colors and gear and it was obvious where I was going .
I would explain that I had season tickets with my son and they were both on his phone and I was meeting him at the game . I wasn't the only person though who got this treatment as others did as well . Fortunately most times the other fans boarding the bus for the game would stick up for us and the driver would relent and let us on . Fortunately this only happened once or twice but holy cow what an unnecessary hassle .
