About 5 or 6 years.
I think I've posted the story before, but from like 2001 until 2006, my buddy and I split season tickets with two other guys my buddy worked with. They weren't close friends or anything, but we knew them well enough to split the tickets. And any additional game I wanted to go to, I student rushed (used old ID or had others buy tickets well in advance, in those days, there were no lines).
When the Pens got Crosby and the team got good again, the guys we split with just stopped taking our calls and we pretty much knew they didn't want us to go in with them anymore after doing it for 5 years. I think they just wanted to sell and profit off the tickets. So the day that happened, I got on the waiting list. So that was what, 5, 6 years ago.
During that time though, we just bought some games off of my brother and other friends for season ticket prices. But it is nice to finally have them in my name, where I control them and we can't get ditched again.
So now I have Pitt FB season tickets, Pens tickets, split Pitt BB tickets. And I've been on the waiting list for the Steelers for 12 years now, but that will probably be another 10 years before I even get a sniff at those.
