Oops

Last week the Rockies were bragging about how cool their online World Series ticket sales were going to be.

Today they're holding press conferences explaining why they're completely effed up.

My guess: Ticket brokers will end up with 90% of them, just like they always do.

The system couldn't handle the demand.

The demand is so extraordinary because CO is excited about the World Series but also because in the digital age everybody is a scalper.

Why not try to buy World Series tickets from the Rockies at 60 - 250 a throw. Everybody knows they can resell them for way, way more than that. E Bay - who own Stub Hub ( and others ) - make it so easy, why not?

The era of "tickets, anybody got tickets?" is coming to an end.
