Loyal readers who happen to spend entire days glued to a computer (either at work or merely for recreational purposes): I need your assistance.

World Series tickets go on sale via Ticketmaster at 12:00 noon (central time) on Tuesday, October 18. I am going to be doing everything in my meager power to get tickets, but I am only one man. If any of our readers would care to join in on the effort, I will gladly reimburse you for the tickets (along with a commission for your services). Tickets go on sale at 12:00 and will be sold out by about 12:02. Getting tickets online in such circumstances is always a crapshoot, and getting more people in on the action increases the odds exponentially.

Games 1, 2, 6, and 7 are in Chicago. I prefer games 2, 6, or 7 and lower deck tickets, but for the love of God anything you can get will be greeted with the most fervent thanks on my part. A maximum of 4 tickets per person are allowed – feel free to purchase either 2 or (preferably) 4.

Tickets are pricey ($125-$185 depending on location) but you'll have a check in your hands for more than the amount of the purchase price within 48 hours. You have's word. And that word is bond, bitches.

    anyone who helps out will have their likeness (to whatever extent, including none, they want) worked somewhere into this webpage as one of our heroes.

    In return for all the entertainment I've gotten from the site, I'd say that trying to help you out here is the least I could do.

    Well, technically, I guess ignoring you would be the *least* I could do. But I'll try to score you some tickets anyway.

    I sincerely wish I could help. Although I don't have much pull in the baseball ticket world, I'll ask around with my friends in advertising and marketing – they're pimpin' that way.

    Hey, my friend Piper took me to a Braves game a few weeks ago and we sat right behind home plate, which I understand is a great place to sit. I don't know much about baseball, but I do so love a foot-long hot dog with mustard and a cold beer.

    Good luck, boys.

    Off topic here, but I've managed to get you guys banned from all public access terminals in Cambridge. Sorry about that.

    I could access G&T for a few days, but after that someone obviously read it. Now I just get a message accussing me of trying to access a site that is either:

    a) Porn.
    b) Entirely engaged in the business of promoting racial hatred.

    Take your pick.

    Couldn't break through. Couldn't get tickets – and I was trying.

    I offer to fall on my sword.

  7. Ed Says:

    Ticketmaster is so gay that it deserves its own parade and flag.

    The flag should be a rainbow with two male unicorns fucking on it.

  8. Ambrosini Says:

    If you didn't get any tickets I'm sure there will be some cardinals fans trying to sell their World Series tickets off after they lose.

  9. K Says:

    That *is* my flag! Shut up!

  10. erik Says:

    Cheer up Ed, at least you can still buy them for several grand on Ebay…

  11. peggy Says:

    for some reason my first mental image (yes, there was more than one, yes, I hold you responsible, Ed, expect a therapy bill in the mail) of male unicorns fucking involved them using their horns. It's like the dildo of the unicorn world. Or something.

    By which I mean, I waited 38 minutes and the page still hadn't loaded, and then I had to go to work. Sorry, dude.

    Peggy L, not Peggy K.

    Believe it or not.
