Ok, my turn for a sob story:
I have the best wife in the world. Our anniversary is on 9/15 (same as Pete Carroll's birthday!). So instead of candlelit dinner at a fancy beachfront restaurant, she says, "Hey, we should go to the home opener and stay the night in Seattle!" HELL YES, I say.
Hotel reserved already... Like many others here I camped the ticketmaster online and on the phone before single tickets went on sale, but no dice.
Short version: Two loud, insane, obsessed Seahawk fans need tickets to the home opener against the 49ers. 150 per ticket is what I planned on spending. (I'm holding to that price for now, but I might get more flexible as the game gets closer, and once I have time to sell a kidney on the black market)
