I went with my brother the the ticketmaster outlet across from the Quakerbridge Mall and got on line with over 100 other people doing the same thing. The lottery system was set up so that everyone got a number and then the person whose number was pulled became the first in line. We got screwed based on the drawing, and wound up at the back of the line. Luckily, I asked a guy around the front of the line to buy 4 tickets for me and I gave him the cash so we got tickets. I sat in the seats one row behind Fireman Ed (may he rest in peace) for $80 a ticket for a playoff game! Man, how times have changed in only 10 years.
Yeah, we had the lottery system too. I didn't get picked but my buddy did.
