    Going, Going, Gone.....

    If you wanted tickets today were you able to score any? I was able to get 2 tickets to the Steelers/Browns on December 28th. When I went back to try and grab 2 more nothing but singles were available which tells me they went pretty fast today.

    Any of you get shut out alltogether?

    Re: Going, Going, Gone.....

    I had my mother-in-law, my wife, and I all on at the same time. I had them try a
    few games, while my target was the Cowboys and chargers. They couldn't get
    through, I failed on my first two, then just for the heck of it I tried the bungles.
    It was probably about 7 minutes after 12, but I scored on those.

    A little disappointed I only got 1 game, but happy I didn't get shut out.

    I'm just hoping the Steelers last game means something. I would really hate for them to be sitting all the starters.

    Yep, that's why that game was on top of my list. Didn't get lucky though.

    Also, I was surprised I didn't get the Cowboys game. I thought I got through
    pretty quick and had a less than 2 minute wait time.

    That's 2 years in a row I was able to get tickets to the games I wanted.
    2007 -Dolphins, Browns and 2008 - Browns

    Ticketmaster 3
    Mailing in my request 0

    I actually like the Ticketmaster idea because it gives the folks out west some chance to get tickets at face value. For as long as I remember I was never able to get tickets by mail order. By the time I got the request letter from the Steelers, filled it out and mailed it back I was already a day or two behind everyone in the east. I had no shot because of where I lived. Now with Ticketmaster everyone is on the same playing field which I prefer.

    I respectfully disagree...

    I had a buddy (cowboys fan) who i told a couple of weeks ago, "let's both get on and go for it"... he agrees... later, he adds a buddy who wants tix.... "he'll be online, too", he says.

    "Good, we need to be there early. Last year, they were all gone by 10 after. Be online, pressing refresh as noon rolls around and we'll get each try." (During the last 2 weeks, I've said this about 10 times, with a re-assurance every single time that he'd be there).

    I call my buddy around 5-til on Sat and say, "you guys ready"... "I'm en route... be home in 10 minutes".... "that'll be 5 minutes too late.." I hear his wife talking in the background, mumbling something... and what it is, doesn't matter... he's out with her instead of handling business. i'm now realizing that instead of going for a pair of tix, i now have to shoot for 3 (or 4), which is less likely to be available. Still, I try... wait 2 mins, not available... I go back for 2 (which I know isn't gonna happen NOW)... not available... I could just kick him in the sack... especially since he possibly cost me an extra $100 (or more) for my ticket... if i even bother to go.
