    Told Mind-Screw By The Yankees Ticket Office

    So, I have a partial season plan this year. I was hoping they'd come around at some point and cut us some kind of break and give us a shot at All Star tickets.

    Today at work I step away from my desk for 3 minutes, I come back and there's a recorded message from John Sterling saying to call back the ticket office immediatey to make payments for my All-Star tickets.

    I was pumped. I dialed right away. It was busy for like a half hour. The website was busy, i couldn't get on. Now I'm getting nervous that I had the shot to get them and blew it by running out to take a dump at the wrong time.

    I finally get through to an operator, before I can even explain, the guy says "Oh, you're probably a partial season ticket holder, right?"

    Me: "Yeah"
    Him: "Dude sorry about that, we weren't supposed to make that call to you guys. Our mistake. You can try to buy tickets when they go on sale to the general population"

    My sister's friend is interning at MLB right now. Not only is she working at the All Star Game, she's supposed to assist the players all weekend long. I think she might be staying at their hotel, too (which is a top secret location, btw. She signed a confidentiality agreement).

    yeah, a fan.

    God forbid the FANS attend the game instead of the millionaires in suits who don't know the difference between a shortstop and a backstop.

    In the latest development, recorded apologies by John Sterling went out today. Got it on my work and cell phones this morning.
