True, true. Or alternatively, they could sign only players who have acromegaly, and advertise the team as the "bobbleheads - on and off the the field."

With the 5 runs scored tonight the $24 tickets are now FREE. According to the announcers, they'll be available tomorrow morning at 9 AM. I know the fan base is scarce but I would think they should at least be able to get rid of all the freebies.

Anyone on the board going to try to snag any?

I might try to order some over the internet and sell them on eBay for $1.00 a piece...

So how much money would you be losing after still paying the convenience and processing charges through ticketmaster? Not to mention the bite that ebay gets to keep...

Go down to the ballpark to get them to skip all of the BS TicketBastard "fees".

If they do sell out and you went the eBay/Craigslist route with them, I would go more than just $1!

You HAD to buy them online...no option. Unfortunately, my IT system at work blocks the Pirates site...I was hoping to score a pair to go out and celebrate an accomplishment tomorrow night. Oh well. Pens game on TV it is.

Oh, well that sucks. I avoid TicketBastard at all costs, but this would be a case where it was the only option.
