    Yes I can afford $50 tickets. No I can't afford $1800.

    Many Chicagoans were stunned to hear that tickets to a potential Olympic opening ceremony in Chicago would cost upwards of $1,200.

    Those same Chicagoans should be pleased to hear more than half of the tickets to other events will go for $50 or less.

    Some events, such as sailing and rowing and the triathlon and marathon, will be free of charge.

    Furthermore, the Chicago 2016 spokesman Patrick Sandusky says that at least half a million of the proposed 7.6 million tickets available for the Games will be donated to schoolchildren and families around the city.
