View Full Version : Anyone have their name drawn for Opening Day?

02-14-2009, 09:29 PM
I entered the chance to purchase Opening Day tix on the Reds website. Didn't hear from them. Did anyone get lucky?

02-14-2009, 09:37 PM
I thought they wouldn't send them til Monday.

02-15-2009, 08:05 AM
Maybe that explains why I haven't won yet. :cool:

Opening day is overrated anyway.

Opening day is overrated anyway.

You probably have never been to opening day

02-15-2009, 12:38 PM
opening day is amazing.....except when the reds start in 4 straight years...corey lidle, jimmy haynes, joey hamilton and paul wilson.

I have been to one, the tie that did not count and I had to walk 4 miles to the park, not fun.

Opening Day is (obligatory, "next to my anniversary date") my favorite day of the year....I am "middle aged" and still get so jacked up that I cant sleep the night before and leave for Cincy from Columbus at 6 am the day of....

02-15-2009, 09:54 PM
had to walk 4 miles to get there.. pretty sure the 10 dollar lot within 1/4 of the stadium would have been a better idea.. heck.. the 5 dollar one 1/2 mile away.. or the 1 dollar ones bout a mile away are far better investments in your time.. sounds like it was bad planning on your part.. or i woulda called a taxi....

I went to my first one last year. Nothing like opening up Natty Lights at 9 in the morning.

Opening Day should be a Nattyional Holiday.

02-15-2009, 10:28 PM
For me personally - Opening day is a holiday. I would always skip class, and this year i have already called off work. There is something about that first game/first week of baseball that is just magical. It's what keeps me coming back.

Park at Newport on Levee for 2.50

Drawing results have been emailed.

Not a winner here

02-16-2009, 09:08 AM
Denied. :(

02-16-2009, 09:14 AM
I have done this like 5 years in a row lol i never get it :( I always end up buying my tickets off ebay!

02-16-2009, 09:27 AM
Denied, again. Guess I'll cough up some dough and go thru eBay, again.

I think it's fixed. Probably a handfull (few thousand maybe?) of actual random drawn names for tickets.

02-16-2009, 09:35 AM

02-16-2009, 09:47 AM
No luck for me either.:(

02-16-2009, 10:18 AM
Negative here as well!

02-16-2009, 10:19 AM

02-16-2009, 10:46 AM
Struck out, again

02-16-2009, 10:56 AM
No love here...but I just registered for friends

02-16-2009, 10:56 AM
Count me in with the rejects.

02-16-2009, 11:02 AM
Hey I Won Diamond Seats!

Just kidding, everyone should know no one wins this crap!:rolleyes:

02-16-2009, 11:09 AM
Yeah, I didn't get drawn either

02-16-2009, 11:15 AM
Nothing here...maybe they send out the winner names later? There maybe is still hope for others!

02-16-2009, 11:23 AM
Man, I am [I]almost [I]glad I dont live near Cincy to make it to games, it would piss me off to be a real fan and not get tix cause its the popular hip thing to do to go to Opening Day, then not show up again all season-at least until the first bobblehead giveaway. I know it would never happen, and dont even know how they would do it, but OD tix should be based on fan points, attendance or something so the Real Reds fans can get in (and I know its not all the crowd, but sure a good % there for the social aspect of OD more then the game itself).

02-16-2009, 12:31 PM
Me and the wife struck out again. Since they started this drawing I do not personally know anyone that has won.
I was lucky a number of years ago and was able to get through the old-style waiting room. Saw the Reds defeat the Mets when Joe Randa, I think, hit the GW HR. I remember looking at our driver in the 7th, and he was passed out.

02-16-2009, 01:06 PM
I didn't get my name drawn either. Although I may still buy one of the packages that include an Opening Day ticket for the simple fact that I've never been to an Opening Day game and it's always been a dream of mine.

02-16-2009, 02:04 PM
I won last year! But not this

02-16-2009, 02:12 PM
Anyone win? Anyone? Bueller?

02-16-2009, 03:09 PM
denied x3

02-16-2009, 03:10 PM
i know someone who used to work for a ticketing agency and they would have to create as many email addresses as possible for various drawings like this. i think some people had over 100 email accounts there.

02-16-2009, 04:48 PM
Struke out again. I will find one some where

02-16-2009, 04:48 PM

02-16-2009, 04:53 PM
still batting .000 on these things.

02-16-2009, 05:40 PM
I struck out also. I should know better than try. This is the same as every other thing people are so willing to sign up for. Just a way to get as many email addresses as possible for marketing. All the while noone really wins anything. I guess I'm just a sucker for the Reds though. I'd love to experience an opening day.

02-16-2009, 08:23 PM
MY COUSIN WON!!! lol thank god no more paying 125 till next year lol

02-16-2009, 08:38 PM
Me, got my ticket from buying the 20 game pack, but no Lottery luck X 3 now. Same for my bro' from Fla, nephew from Columbus. I'd think it was a hoax but my bro' did hit it 2 years ago. Guess it's an attempt to keep scalpers from buying them up, although got several of the family's tickets last year from a scalper anyway.

02-16-2009, 08:39 PM
i lose, i get nothing! good day sir!!

Ghosts of 1990
02-16-2009, 09:30 PM
Sorry that there are no sun deck winners.

I'm probably heading towards Ebay or stubhub if i am not working

02-17-2009, 12:11 AM
didn't get a denial or a winner either, signed myself and the wife up. Anyone else not even get an email yet?

02-17-2009, 04:42 PM
nothing again ! same as every other year! guess i will have to wait to go when the cool crowd gets their fix lol

02-17-2009, 06:27 PM
I got denied.

02-17-2009, 07:13 PM
HaHa! This is definately a loser's thread! So,------- I fit in!

02-18-2009, 12:31 PM

looks to be the best deal
