Hmmm, wonder why they won't announce how long it took to sell out this time?

It probably took longer then last year ;):laugh: I was thinking the same thing - OR - they probably do not know when it actually was...

Well I got thru on the phone 6 minutes after 9 and was told they were out. If that helps.

I think it's cause they sold so many Power Packs and season tix holders bought the extras they are allowed (to sell on ebay ;) ), that they didn't have very many for the public sale and they don't want anyone to know what a snowball's chance in :devil: they had to actually get a ticket.

That's my conspiracy theory and I'm stickin to it. :p:

Yeah it's pretty disgusting, I was browsing them last night. I am not going this year beacuse I am obligated to host my opening day cookout/cornhole tournament. It's called "TommyJohn25's Second Annual Official Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Cookout Cornhole Extravaganza"

The title gets longer ever week. ;)

I got through at 9:08 on my clock. My clock is in my phone and sets itself automatically so it's pretty accurate. At 9:08 I got 2 SRO tickets. I can't see it lasting any longer than 10 minutes to be honest. Possibly some other tickets existed that people let back out after that but the initial tickets had to have all been claimed in about a 10 minute span.

Maybe it was even faster then and I just got lucky and got tickets that someone else had and then dropped during the payment process. Maybe it's more like 5-6 minutes for the initial ticket to be claimed.
