Some of you may be aware that I won a bunch of tickets from the Vienna Beef fanpage on Facebook for Thursday's game. I finally got them via FedEx today...and they're in section 558.

obviously, it's eight free tickets, and beggars can't be choosers, but I just kind it kind of funny.

I almost got free scout seats a few weeks ago. My friend's boss gave them to her. But I didn't answer the phone in time, so she had to let them go. :(: Luckily, her boss did give her front row seats in 117, so that was almost as good.

Yes. I think the White Sox have something to do with this. What awful consumer relations. An all around terrible organization.

I sat in section 558 for game 2 of the 2005 ALDS. They are great seats. Bring your binoculars and a radio, and you'll be able to know whats going on. Or just move into some unoccupied seats near home plate.

This. People hop seats in the Upper Deck all the time, especially since attendance has been so bad. You'll have no problem sitting somewhere closer if you want.

Yeah, I've noticed that nobody checks tickets before you go into a section in the UD. We will definitely move at least a little bit down the line.

Congrats on your WIN! Keep your winning streak going:cool:

I win stuff all the time.

:)

If you don't like the seats, sell the eight and buy one scout seat. I'll look for you on tv.

I went to Tuesday's game with Row 35 tickets. By the time Omar flied out with the bases loaded to end the game, I was sitting in the 2nd row of Section 128 and could feel the snap of Feliz's curveball in front of my face.

Terrible attendance: not just an annoying WSI topic, but also your friend when it comes to getting a good seat

i'm suprised the sox sold tix in that section. that dosent happen unless the upper deck is all but sold out.

I'm surprised about that too. If you search for upper reserve tix, they're just releasing tix in Section 548 row 3. So only a few sections and a few rows in the upper deck will be taken... then a sea of empty sections leading to the corner section... where 8 lucky people will be seated in the very last corner section of the stadium. Something doesn't add up there.

Awesome! I won ten tickets from their twitter page for tonights game too. Mine are in section 557. Row 15. Think i'll be siting in the lower bowl though.

Yes its Dog Day but you need special tickets to take your dog.

Nice work on the free tickets. I got two free tickets from someone for tonight's game as that's one pro for a team not playing good baseball.

I love terrible seats for bad baseball games. Makes it easier to laugh at the horror of it all.

Upon careful counting, on their Facebook page Vienna Beef gave away a total of 216 tickets. I can't tell you where they are exactly, but it would be quite odd if they were all in this same area. We'll definitely be moving closer to the plate, because I'm thinking the attendance for this game is going to be great.

...Upon checking their twitter page, make that 30 or 40 more tickets.

If you go to the Box Office, you may be able to upgrade your tickets by paying the difference in price.

This may sounds crazy to some, but in my opinion section 558 is better than sections 548 - 557, because you actually face the action. I sat in Section 506 for the tiebreaker in 2008, and I didn't think they were bad at all. It's also a short row so you don't have to ask 15 people to get up in order to get to your seat.

Ok my bad lol :cool: Either way enjoy the game. Dog Day kinda sucks (No fireworks) but enjoy! Other than a 2 game series, I do not think the Sox have been swept at home.

Well, now... I stand by my originaly assertion. You CAN upgrade your tickets by paying the difference. Only, in this instance, you will have extra tickets.

This is what I'm worried about. I won 4 tickets for picking Putz's song, and I really don't care were they are, but I don't want to be all the way up there. Either way, free tickets are free tickets.

the vienne beef tix are a large group order. your contest tix are probably vouchers redeemable for tix.

Don't knock the free tickets-

I was given free tickets on a special day.
This day was July 23, 2009.
My seat was in section 509 row 7.
It was still magical up there !

No doubt! My fam got free tickets as the fireworks shot off and will never forget that day.

Freebies are freebies, but it is kinda strange that a walkup customer can get better tickets.

if vienna bought 216 tickets for the game, then YES, they are ALL together.that's how group ticket sales work.
What if they bought 108 down EACH line?
