I Scored Tickets For Tonight's Game!!!

Petco Park at NightI scored tickets for tonight's sold-out Padres-Dodgers game at an auction yesterday on the Marketplace page of the Padres web site! The auction was scheduled to end at 12:05 p.m. and I placed a bid at 11:36 a.m. At 11:53 someone outbid me by $1, so I knew I had competition for the tickets. I waited until 12:04:15, then I bid $2 more than the previous high. I figured that if someone else also tried to sneak in at the last second, they'd probably bid just $1 higher, and I'd beat them. I don't know if that happened or not, but I do know that I won the auction!

My buddy Marsi and I thus will be sitting in section 302's row 9 at Petco Park for tonight's opening game of this weekend's important series! I took this picture from section 301's row 22 during the Padres-Giants game on Sunday, April 11.
