    Did anyone else win the lottery for OD Tickets?

    I just got my second confirmation from the Reds that I won the lottery for a chance to buy Opening Day tickets later this week. Did anyone else win?

    I didn't win, but I would love to have some tickets.

    I didn't win either.

    I lost, time to look towards the scalpers unless a fellow RedZoner wants to help me out!

    Lost out. No opening day for me this year as a result since I could only pay at max $20 or $25 over ticket value which makes any respectable, semi-respectable or non-respectable scalper laugh in my face.

    I really loathe the lottery system. But I have an HD TV for the first time so I am looking forward to the game on the TV to make the best out of a bad situation.

    This happened last year as well, 95% of Redszoners who applied for the lottery were denied.

    I was denied again this year.

    I'll be paying above face value again this year it would seem. I miss being able to wait in line.

    Didn't win either for the umpteenth time. It's an exercise in futility.

    I'll go either Wednesday night or Thursday's business person special. Never a problem with parking, getting tickets, etc.

    It's just Opening Day for me.

    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.
