How to Get Free White Sox Tickets

Ankur and I arrived outside US Cellular Field a few minutes after the first pitch of Wednesday's Twins/Sox game. We didn't have tickets, and the upper deck was apparently sold out - the parking lady warned us that she wasn't giving refunds.

We figured it wouldn't be tough to scalp two lower level tickets, especially with the Sox on the brink of being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. After wandering around a bit, we found a guy with two tickets and paid him $25 each. He was very adamant that we put the tickets in our pocket immediately "because there's cops around!"

Upon further inspection, the tickets were for Tuesday night's game. We approached our salesman, who pretended to not know us and insisted that he had just gotten off the L and was looking for tickets himself. When we asked for our money back, he invited us to search him. But how to get tickets if he has no money? "People just give them away. The Sox ain't shit."

Eventually, Ankur got the attention of some plainclothes cops who promptly arrested our friend. As we were waiting for our $50 back, I started getting impatient and went to the box office to buy tickets. While waiting in line, I met a guy grumbling about how his friend was being arrested - oh and by the way he was selling tickets for tonight's game.

After confirming they were legit, I bought two and walked back to discover one of the cops had just given Ankur two tickets "…from other bad guys. But you didn't get these from us…" We declined the offer, since I'm pretty sure my tickets were non-refundable.

As for Ankur's $50 bill, we had to visit the police station after the game to pick it up so they could inventory it first. In the meantime, the Twins completed the sweep with their second consecutive 8-6 victory.

What a night.

Rhode Island

I don't think I've ever seen a Rhode Island license plate. In other news, the lens on my BlackBerry camera is filthy!

  • I don't think that dipping sauce is high enough... let's add more lettuce to set it on.

Dead Amp?

My Klipsch ProMedia amp is making awful noises (and not playing music). How do I know if it is dead?

  • I had to replace the control pod on mine. Customer service was VERY helpful, even explaining how to get a part that was on back-order without me even asking.
