Rockies have problems with World Series ticket sales

I guess the World Series tickets were a hot commodity.

The Rockies have suspended tickets sales after being overwhelmed by 8.5 million hits in an hour.

It sounds like there were a lot of very unhappy fans.  I wasn’t expecting to get tickets, but still….this is ridiculous.

As a Public Relations person, this will be a very interesting situation to keep an eye on.

Trying to get World Series Tix – The Liveblog edition

We’ll see how this turns out……

UPDATE: 10:05 a.m. and it’s not looking good.

UPDATE: 10:10 a.m. both Explorer and Firefox are going, but I’m not getting in. Will keep trying. I wish we could have sat outside for tickets. Not sure this idea was the greatest.

UPDATE: 10:20 a.m. and still in the cue to get to the server. Arrrrggggh! I wonder how many ticket scalpers have gotten through? I bet it’s a lot.

UPDATE: 10:30 a.m. got back to the please hold page. That could be good news or very bad news.

UPDATE: 10:42 a.m. still not getting any results. I’m just hoping that it’s real fans getting these tickets, but I’m not very optimistic.

UPDATE: 10:50 a.m. now my fingers are starting to hurt from all the refreshing. Depression is starting to set in.

UPDATE: 11:03 a.m. haven’t heard if they’re sold out or not, but I’m gonna keep trying until I get the “sold out” sign.

UPDATE: 11:15 a.m. now my explorer browser is freezing…nice. Still to confirmation on sold out tickets.

UPDATE: 11:25 a.m. news sites are saying tix are still available, but I’m not sure.

UPDATE:  12:48 p.m.  well this certainly explains why I was having so much trouble.  Egad!!!!
