Boston Sports Demographics -- An InsightThe suburban liquor store was empty enough at 2:30 p.m. today that the manager was able to chew the fat with a younger guy with a fabulous tan who was clearly a distributor's rep. They were talking sports, and the rep joked he'd be able to score Super Bowl tickets if the Pats won the AFC title game.
Tickets are never a joking matter for long in this town.
"No, really," said the younger man, "for us, getting Celtics tickets is easy. Bruins tickets are hard, real hard."
Not wanting to disappoint a good customer, the rep offered some advice. "You probably ought to talk to one of the beer guys for those," he said.
