It's a Buyer's Market for Game Five Tickets...

Tonight's game will be announced as a sellout, but there will be plenty of green seats visible to the nationwide viewing audience. The sea of red has been parted by White Sox pitching, leading many Rally Monkey bandwagoners to sell their seats.

Three days ago, the Angels Ticket Exchange had less than one hundred seats available for today's game. After Friday's loss, that number increased to over three hundred. This morning displayed over eight hundred, and as of a couple of minutes ago - there are well over nine hundred seats available at the exchange. (The Angels Ticket Exchange allows season-seat holders to sell their playoff seats to the public up to three times face-value. Regular season seats can be sold up to five times face.)

People who are attempting to sell ticket on eBay are even facing tougher times due to the decreased demand. Many of tonight's tickets are being sold for below face - and most auctions are ending with zero bids.

If you don't have 'em yet, now is the time - as it's definitely a buyer's market. The upside is the person sitting next to you is more likely to be a true Angel fan - your Angels. And the downside...well, the worst that could be said is that you supported your team. The picture above was taken in the top half of the eighth inning last night. I hope I don't witness the same today.

Win or lose, it has been a great season, and we've all had a good time. It doesn't seem right that it should end this way, with empty seats and fans motivated only by success.

So when the Halos take the field and David Courtney says over the loudspeaker, "Ladies and gentlemen, here are your Angels!" I hope to see you there!
