Hey Bill - what'd you do with your playoff tickets?

[I posted this over the weekend at Sweaty Men Endeavors, but just in case you don't like the sports and usually don't make it over there, I thought I'd post it here, too. Because it's too funny to keep restricted to the sports blog.]

From Saturday 01/06/07:

As we've heard all too often, the playoffs are a whole different game. And apparently, that applies to scoring playoff tickets, as well.

According to today's Philadelphia Inquirer, there's an ad on craigslist.org from two "very attractive" grad students who will let you watch them have sex in exchange for Eagles-Giants seats.

Even better, these kids will let you do more than watch. You can even script the plays, if you know what I mean.

And if you're bringing your own play calls, you might want to make sure that Denny's menu-like play sheet is laminated. (Sorry - that was over the line, wasn't it?)

Just before you think this couple doesn't have any standards, there are certain plays that you wouldn't be able to call. Again, if you know what I mean. (And I really probably should leave it at that. You can go ahead and fill in the blanks yourselves. Pervs.)

So if you're at the game tomorrow, just for $#!+s and giggles, it might be fun to ask the guy next to you how he got his seats. Or maybe not. You might be eating at the time. Or with your son.

Meanwhile, you can always try those ticket brokers we bloggers have listed on our sidebars...

[Unfortunately, in the days since this story broke, I haven't been able to find any follow-up. I guess no one's talking to the press. Did those young lovers get tickets to the Eagles' 23-20 victory over the Giants? If so, how good were the seats? And what did the seller get to watch, in exchange? Don't leave us hanging, man.]
