welp I tried.

Postby awwchrist » Mon Jan 16, 2006 1:21 pm

got up at 9:40am his morning.

got my coffee goin.

turned on ESPN.

grabbed the phone.

turned the computer on.

grabbed my cup o joe (seahawks mug of course)

eased into the desk chair.

programmed 888-nfl-hawk into the speed dial

got my browser to seahawks.com

waited.

waited.

waited.

9:57am..."redial" "7"

refreshed browser until I got the "purchase NFC Championship playoff tickets here"

....
....
...

I'd say in 8 ten minute span I musta got a busy tone a bazillion times. TWICE I was able to get the automated seahawk response prompting me "if you'd like to purchase tickets for the nfc championship game...push 2 now". where I was sent to "your call cannot be completed as dialed" hell.

I was never able to get anywhere online. There's talk that ticketmaster sold out in 4 minutes. Which is boggling.

I just wanted to go to the game. I had the money. I would have given it to you Mr. Seahawk.

So if you're reading this and it's YOU that's taking my seat, you better make yourself heard.

Capiche?

I sat down at 9:45 and got all set to fire off to ticketmaster online. It wouldn't let me in at 9:59 and I was right on the money at 10:00 but I couldn't get a thing.

Rats! Oh well, I haven't given up. Got a couple irons in the fire.

And prayer.

Heard that a guy was able to get through on the phones and has placed his ticket on e-bay for $1,000. Freaken prick!
