al.com—the Alabama state media cartel—has a story in this morning’s edition of three of the state’s largest daily papers lamenting the plight of fans’ inability to score tickets to the BCS Championship Game on Monday night, pitting the Auburn Tigers against the Oregon Ducks:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Eric Varnadore believed in the Auburn football team so much that he bought tickets to watch the Tigers in the BCS national championship game when they still had major hurdles to get there.
"We were counting on Auburn beating Georgia, then going to Tuscaloosa and win, and then winning the SEC championship," Varnadore said. "On Nov. 9, we made a $1,500 bet that has paid off in nothing but heartache."
That's because on Nov. 9 he bought four tickets to the BCS national championship game on eBay as an anniversary trip for his wife, plus two friends. But he hasn't gotten—and most likely won't get—the tickets.
Another story in the Mobile Press-Register has a disgruntled ticket buyer filing a lawsuit against a ticket broker in Birmingham over a ticket buying SNAFU.
They should have gone to TicketLiquidator.com. The outlet still has tickets, but they’re not cheap. Some of those available are being sold by the outlet’s most trusted sellers.
