Golden Tickets for Chargers Playoff Games?

Taking a page out of the Willy Wonka playbook, the San Diego Union-Tribune buried 10 “golden tickets” in their Sunday papers, causing a frenzy in Daygo. 

“There will be one ticket, the actual ticket to the game, with a coupon for that second ticket.  But the Union-Tribune wants to avoid a frenzy. People shouldn’t form an assembly line to hunt for tickets, nor should you try to snatch a ticket from a winner’s hand.”

They want to avoid a frenzy?  Right, that’s exactly why you creat a promotion as such.  Sources in San Diego said it was complete madness on Sunday – people were out in search of papers like they were giving away free Jessica Alba peep shows.  At least the good sign for Bolts fans is that tickets to a sporting event are finally in demand.  Tickets for Sunday’s game against the Patriots are going for well into the hundreds and even thousands on ebay.

    Hey did you just say Jessica Alba peeps shows I’m there. Seriously though it’s sad what tickets cost to these events ( Playoffs ect ) you almost have to get a loan or a 2nd mortgage just to go see your team . I have to admit I was ready to give up my first born in 2004 for Red Sox tickets .
