Some tickets were impossible to get, for instance US Men's Basketball. We were able to get tickets to the US womens semi-final game against Russia where I was lucky enough to sit next to a beautiful WNBA player named Sheri Sam who gave us tickets to the men's semifinal against Argentina. Final and semi-finals were expensive. $75 to $150. Tickets for the main stadium track and field events were impossible to find. Not that we bothered looking. We watched them on TV.
