    January 29, 2010:
    Virtual Waiting Room Time!

    Posted by Christine E. at 3:47 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (2)

    Yep, it’s that time of year again, where thousands of less than sane Red Sox fans (myself included) pour themselves a giant cup of coffee (or whatever your beverage of choice is), and sit down at their computers at 10:00am tomorrow (Saturday) morning and hope they are one of the very lucky few who will not have to sit in the endless void that is the Virtual Waiting Room–at least without getting tickets…

    I have doing this ritual for the last 9-10 years or so, with varying degrees of success; the best year was 2004, when I got tickets in about 2 hours–and yes, I know, it’s incredibly sad that I remember this kind of stuff…

    What’s your name again?

    The worst year was 2006 when I couldn’t get tickets at all, despite 10 hours on my machine, and even checking back a couple days later.

    All in all, it’s been a successful endeavor, averaging about 6 hours of my live on a Saturday once a year for the chance to go to the Holy Land and watch my beloved Red Sox…

    Some more info on the 2010 Home Game Sale:

    You can buy tickets on Red Sox.com (aka, the Virtual Waiting Room) or by calling 877-REDSOX9. Hearing impaired folks cal call the TTY line: (617) 226-6644…

    Tickets for the really good games (Skanks, Dodgers(??) and the really good seats (Green Monster, Budweiser Seats, etc) will be available via random drawings later in the off-season.

    So the Sox really think that the return of Manny Ramirez with the Dodgers in June warrants those tickets to be elevated as the same status as the Red Sox/Skankee games? Wow….

    As always, folks are only allowed to buy 8 tickets each–yeah ok…that is why the scalpers hire tons of people to get tickets…

    So get a good night’s sleep, get the industrial sized mug out, and Happy Waiting!
