World Series Ticket Mess
The Rockies Ticket System has turned into a complete disaster. The whole idea of selling the seats online is a bad one to begin with, but to do it now with tickets this hot is inviting trouble. I've got problems with the way tickets are sold anyway. I love what Bruce Springsteen does. He holds back the first two rows and waits until right before the concert starts to find people in the last rows to give them to. That way the brokers plans are thwarted. and generally the real fans benefit.
These big sporting events, as you know, are never for the fans anyway. Like the Super Bowl, most seats are given to high rollers, movie stars and corporate sponsors.
Let me know about your experiences in trying to get tickets and what you think of the system the Rockies are using. Remember, keep it clean.
