A $54.95 price tag for Oscar-Manny, in this economy?


That’s a pretty steep price to pay just to claim witness to seeing Oscar de la Hoya take on Manny Manny Pacquiaoon the HBO pay-per-view bout Saturday (6 p.m., PDT, from Las Vegas), no matter how much some local papers are overhyping it.

It brings up a point that CNBC’s Darren Rovel makes on his blog today (linked here), that for buying a 12-pack of some beer that’s “hecho in Mexico,” or four 16-ounce cans of another overhyped energy drink, you can knock the price down by $20. And in some states, you don’t even have to drink responsibly purchase the required beer.
