TICKET PRICES: WNBA Mercury officials will increase ticket prices next season and expect their season-ticket base to reach 6,000-8,000, up from 4,500. Mercury VP/Operations Seth Sulka said there would still be 8,000 upper-level seats for $8: "We're not talking about anything massive" (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 11/19)....The ECHL Raleigh IceCaps announced a new ticket price -- $5 -- for youth 14-and-under and high school and college students with ID (NEWS & OBSERVER, 11/18). NHL: The SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS reports that twice in the last week, the Sharks have played against teams with African- American players. In each game, the Foreigner song "Dirty White Boy" was played when the African-American players were sent to the penalty box. In San Jose, David Pollak asks, "Coincidence? Pattern? Two minutes for cluelessness?" Sharks Exec VP Malcolm Bordelon: "Mistakes. Embarrassing mistakes." Bordelon said that the team has pulled the song from the playlist (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 11/18).
