You'll recall that yesterday I was shuffled into the Red Sox virtual waiting room at 10 a.m. and was still dutifully waiting for tickets at noon. Well, they finally let me into the ticket buying area ... at 11:30 p.m. last night. (Butt hurts ... Eyes stinging ... Who am I?)
OK, so I wasn't in front of the terminal the whole time. But 13 1/2 hours to get a couple of tickets to a ballgame seems like a bit much. I wound up with two sets of two grandstand seats each, in adjoining sections, on a school night. I could have gotten four tickets together if I went with standing room only, but I'd sooner take my kids to a general admission Who concert.
Meanwhile, I think that commenter Brian has the right idea.
