The St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams both play home games tonight. The Cardinals host the Boston Red Sox for game five of the World Series at Busch Stadium. Nine blocks north in downtown, the Rams host the Seattle Seahawks at the Edward Jones Dome. According to Elias Sports Bureau, this is only the second time Monday Night Football and a World Series game have overlapped in the same city.1 The coincidence promises to make for the worst traffic St. Louis has seen in a long time. It’s already laid ruin to the market for Rams tickets.

According to Will Flaherty of ticket search engine SeatGeek, prices for the football game have cratered as the Cardinals have progressed through the playoffs. Tickets to see the Rams tonight were selling for an average of $116.60 before baseball’s playoffs started. By the time the Cardinals reached the National League Championship Series earlier this month, that had fallen to $58.11. Over the last four days, the average is down to $21.52, with some seats going for as little as $8.
