With football championships on the line, the annual scramble for impossible to get tickets is underway, with newspapers chronicling the desperate “Hail Mary” efforts.
For example: If you have tickets for the Eagles-Giants NFL playoff game on Sunday, and have always wanted to “call the plays” — not on the playing field but in someone else’s bedroom — here’s your big chance.
A purportedly “very attractive younger couple, both in grad school” took out an ad on Craigslist on Thursday offering to let some voyeur direct the action as they have sex in exchange for two tickets for the game, to be played in Phildelphia on Sunday.
“We’ve talked about it and figured we’d see if anyone had two tickets that would want to offer them up for watching us do what you choose in real life,” reads the ad, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report.
But some things, after all, sacred. The couple claims they will not listen to any demands for what they call “pain/potty/or anal.
Tickets are probably even harder to come by for the college football championship tussle between Ohio State and Florida. The Columbus Dispatch tracked some local bartering, opening with the following.
Gary Galat has a big-ticket item that he?s willing to trade for the hottest ticket in town.
“Look at it,” he said, patting the hood of a 1972 Mercedes Benz 250 sedan. “It?s beautiful. Someone coughs up two tickets, this is theirs.”
Galat and other Buckeye fans desperate to see Ohio State take on Florida in the BCS National Championship Game on Monday night are turning to creative offers: cars, Hawaiian vacations, a weekend of free lodging and more.
So far, though, their tactics aren?t working.
Galat, 43, who owns the Phoenix used-car dealership Kendall?s, received exactly one call about his offer to make ticket holders a sweet deal on a clean vehicle.
