2003-11-19 01:37:19 PM  
Just go watch it in jail.
2003-11-19 01:37:19 PM  
It's a forgery!
2003-11-19 01:39:51 PM  
anyone have any extra tickets?
2003-11-19 01:39:55 PM  
here's that chance for al qaeda to take out those 100,000 people before the end of ramadan.

they delivered on the bengals beating the chiefs... right?

1. The law isn't that dumb. It's still illegal.
2. It's just a friggin' game. Give me the money instead, and I'll play whatever sport you want. You can be in the front row.

My parents went to the Michigan football game and all I got was this white envelope.
2003-11-19 01:42:52 PM  
Go Buckeyes! Woooooooooooo!
2003-11-19 01:43:21 PM  
Methinks the only thing more stupid than this amateurish end-run around the anti-scalping law is the anti-scalping law itself.

about the gayest thing I've ever seen was last year on Mill Ave, after Ohio State won the national championshiop at the Fiesta Bowl. Mill Ave is just a quarter-mile from the stadium, and the scarlet and silver were all over the place.

Anyways, there were these two drunk frat boy types, wearing Clarett jerseys, and they were crying like biatches. We're talking gushing tears, chest-heaving sobs, hugging each other, saying "dude we won it all", "I can't believe it" and so on.

I wasn't sure which was gayer - that they wouldn't stop hugging each other, or that they were crying like babies.

I hate Ohio State. I hope they get clowned saturday so the BCS can at least have some sense of normalcy.
2003-11-19 01:45:53 PM  
Won't keep them out of jail, but clever.
2003-11-19 01:46:43 PM  
I hate (sc)UM, but they are going to expose the Buckeyes for the piss poor program it is.
2003-11-19 01:48:06 PM  
Is that like "Envelope containing white powder?"
Got nothin else.
2003-11-19 01:48:29 PM  
Or, if you're having trouble finding a tv to watch the game on, you can always plead guilty to fraud.

As for the "buy a (insert cheap object here), get a (insert expensive item here) free" thing, how is this newsworthy? People have been doing this in an attempt to get around scalping laws since long before Al Gore invented this intramaildotcomweb thingee. It has proliferated since eBay came about, but it's still not new.
Oh, and this type of transaction is still illegal where I come from.

Personally, I think you should be able to do what you want with a ticket that you have purchased. Scalping laws are stoopid. Sure, many scalpers abuse the system, but so does Ticketmaster as far as I'm concerned.

now I'm off to actually rtfa.
2003-11-19 01:49:46 PM  
Piss poor program they have, rather.
2003-11-19 01:50:31 PM  
thats a genius idea.
2003-11-19 01:52:08 PM  
2003-11-19 01:52:28 PM  
When scalpers are outlawed only outlaws will have scalps.

Or something like that.
2003-11-19 01:53:38 PM  
GO BLUE!!!!!!!
2003-11-19 01:54:37 PM  
Damn, I got screwed. I paid over $2000 for a personalize white hat lat month.
2003-11-19 01:55:13 PM  
Fark Ohio State! Fark their overachieving community-college asses!

Kiss your BCS ranking goodbye when you walk into the Big House kiddies...
2003-11-19 01:56:30 PM  
To hell with both of 'em.

I hate (sc)UM, but they are going to expose the Buckeyes for the piss poor program it is.

Yeah, cause man what a shiatty record for playing so many top 25 (top 10 even) teams. Damn...piss poor, I tell ya...

BULL shiat!!!

Their game relies on their defense and they win games that way. Any way you look at it, they still win. Close? Who cares, they win. Is it still luck when they do the same thing every week? I don't farking think so.

2003-11-19 01:57:54 PM  
All OSU haters- Yeah, our program sucks... but not as much as the other 116 division I schools!!!

UM= old and busted
OSU= new hotness
2003-11-19 01:58:27 PM  
2003-11-19 01:58:32 PM  
A perfect example of supply and demand... and capitalism too.
2003-11-19 01:59:06 PM  
This isn't a new idea.

I've been selling pencils (with free beer) for $3 dollars outside concerts for years to get around illegal distribution laws.
2003-11-19 01:59:58 PM  
so THAT'S how much my ticket is worth!!

anyone looking for a ticket? ;-)
2003-11-19 02:00:26 PM  
And this is news how??? They were doing this at Penn State (and similar colleges) over 10 years ago. And this is still illegal, when I was there people at PSU were busted for it.

At this point, I'll gladly trade my Penn State tickets for some white envelopes. I'll get more enjoyment out of the envelopes.

Oh yeah, fark Michigan and OSU.
2003-11-19 02:01:44 PM  
This is illegal, yet "ticket brokers" who are magically allowed to buy hundreds of tickets for primo events and resell them for $$$$ are perfectly ok? I've never understood that.
2003-11-19 02:02:25 PM  
Way to sticket to the man.
2003-11-19 02:04:01 PM  
This is the oldest ebay trick in the book. I remember when Blair Witch Crapject first came out, they were selling strands of spaghetti, with a free copy of blair witch, or something like that.

/old news
2003-11-19 02:05:34 PM  
Why would anyone pay that much to watch 2 overhyped Big 11 teams that aren't even very good anyway?
2003-11-19 02:07:01 PM  
wonder if that flies any better than selling cups for a few bucks and giving away free beer.
2003-11-19 02:07:37 PM  
Oh, and go BUCKS!
2003-11-19 02:09:49 PM  
on wisconsin!
2003-11-19 02:13:59 PM  
GO USC!!!!!
2003-11-19 02:15:28 PM  
HOLY farkING shiat!!! I'm so pissed the ESPN Gameday is going to that little shiat game you call the OSU v UM game. Who the fark cares? No one! We've seen it a hundreed farking times. Where the action really is at is the Ole Miss v. LSU game. HELLO?!?! 15th in the nation, 6-0 in the SEC against a 3rd ranked LSU. Too bad yall don't live near here. Regardless of a win or loss, it is going to the the wildest party EVER. You think you can tailgate? STFU. You've never tailgated till you've spent a day in the grove getting shiatfaced before/after a game. Don't play. You know i'm right. BTW, our tickets go for $500 and we're not pussies. We say what we're selling. If i didn't really want to go to the game, i would totally sell my ticket and get a quick $200, but i'd be too upset about missing Ole Miss's biggest game ever.
2003-11-19 02:16:36 PM  
Whoa. Scalping is legal in Ohio? Oh, that opens up all sorts of possibilities.

"Hey, Mom, what sort of cut do you want to scalp these under your name??"

2003-11-19 02:17:39 PM  
Yup, I'll take two top-20's over two top-5's any day of the week.

2003-11-19 02:20:42 PM  
I, for one, welcome our personalized white envelope overlords.
2003-11-19 02:23:42 PM  
rickythepenguin: so "clowned" is a verb now... I gotta start using that...

and as for college football, I stopped caring when my team lost to Duke last week, but I guess I'd like to see Michigan win and knock OSU outta the BCS picture... I'm hoping for OU and LSU this year.
2003-11-19 02:27:18 PM  
Okay, being a Canadian and a moron as far as football is concerned;

Why is this game so important?
2003-11-19 02:38:32 PM  

It has BCS Championship game implications.

That, and it's one of the best rivalries in college football.
2003-11-19 02:41:37 PM  
You know, I once thought of having a "Do it yourself porn movie" shop. You know have some "actresses" in the building with video camera's in all the rooms. The customer pays a certain dollar amount per hour depending on the actress (cuz certain actresses have a wider range of.. umm skills?? :).

If this envelope thing is legal then so's my idea... just call me Pimp Three!

Any Hot Farkette's (come on.. it's possible) wanna apply???
2003-11-19 02:41:43 PM  
3rd for good measure ....

GO BLUE !!!!

CrazyStorm ... 2nd biggest rivalry in this area next to Michigan State v. Michigan. <went to both schools, graduated from MSU>

... the thrid is Michigan v. Minna-soda. <we own the M>
2003-11-19 02:42:56 PM  

IOW...errr... I mean OHIO ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Final Score Michigan 27 OSU 13

-Fark the Buckeyes and their obnoxious fans
2003-11-19 02:50:05 PM  
The players get a cut of all the money that is made from ticket sales and merchandise and broadcast rights and stuff, yes?
