Insulting a mod is never a smart move... although in this case pfim does work in the exciting world of fast-food (what it do, Arby's fry guy!).

It wasn't because of this message board. And, if you REALLY wanted tix, perhaps you should have taken a vacation day.

Lol whatever. i'l get tix i'll just have to pay a lil more. I love how venting my frustrations to my fellow fans instaead of my coworkers gets me all kind of negative attention. Now that im calming down i honestly looked at my watch at 9:30 before heading into a meeting and thought to myself "theres no way that the game will be sold out in less than a day. i didnt know that they would only be selling 41000 tix today. Oh well water under the bridge.... whaaaaa cry cry whaaa .........:)

Jealosy is fun!

Anyway, yeah, I'm actually homeless. But I got my tickets on a computer at the West End Carnegie Library.

All I'm saying is this: Not everyone gets everything they want. There was obviously more demand than people thought there was going to be. I'm sorry. Honestly that sucks that Pens fans couldn't get tickets... but I should also remind you that a lot of us got tickets without a problem.

I almost guarantee you'll be able to get tickets close to face.

Right now there is an obvious rush and excitement.

Besides, I don't care. One of my grad school buddies is a Sabres STH and he's getting my seats.

But the fact is these are the Sabres tickets to sell. They and only they should decide the best way to sell their product.

If you don't like it, don't give the Sabres any money.

Yeah, where's your dedication, you fairweather fan?

My office has a phone, internet access, and email. I'm assuming yours does too. That means that you had 3 ways you could have gotten tickets between 10 and 10:30, when they sold out.

But just because you had no trouble doesn't mean others didn't.

Complaining won't fix it. People are blaming the system because they werent able to get tickets after it sold out. That's how life works. If you couldnt be somewhere to try at 10:00 that's nobody's fault but yours.


And waht about the people who could be around at 10:00 but couldn't get through? That's not their fault.

But Judy, I think what people are getting at is it didn't matter whether you had the special STH code or not. If you weren't buying at 10 am, you weren't getting tickets. To blame it on the Pen's office or someone posting a secret code here is quite childish. It was an open process, that maybe could have been done better, but it had nothing to do with message boards.

Oh im sorry i have a real job that i have to be at. My responsibilities at work come before buying tickets for if i dont make money i cant spend money. You should at least thank me for paying my taxes next time you get your welfare check cuz you must not have a job if your online at 10:00 a.m.............


I'm online all day and I have a job.

I have a job that pretty much puts me online all day!

Yes, mine does as well. He stated he had to work, and thus could buy tix at 10 am.

You went on a message board and posted "I'm so mad at message boards." What did you expect?

there is a difference between venting and whining. Your approach was asking for ridicule.

I was thinking the same thing.

But, I guess anyone that would insult someone by using a derogatory term about disabled people isn't that bright.

If he was smart, he would have looked at the clock at 10 am and then used that telephone thing on his desk and he would have tickets.

I gave the poor woman at the pens box office an ear full. Wtf didnt they put a link on our sth account page where we manage our account, email tix, and so on, so that in order to access it you needed an account number and password. Doesnt this make more sense???? asdfg.... :(



it's not a penguins home game. the game is in buffalo, you know.
Good point!

At that time of the year up there, that is a possibility! I wouldnt say its likely but far from impossible.
