She looks alarmingly like Peter Gammons.

I saw this woman at the Cell for Game 1 of the '05 World Series. She was on the thirdbase side of the upperdeck. I vividly recall that parka with all of the World Series tickets pinned on, and I thought it was pretty amazing.

Fan of the century really. That's just ridiculous.

How does one go about getting tickets for every single World Series game since 1964?

I would say that being wealthy would be a good way.

Ticket holders have been willing to part with their tickets for cash for some time now.

I suspect by now MLB just gives her the tickets.

So if I start going to every World Series, years from now MLB will give me free tickets? I'm on the next plane to Denver.

If that guy in Cleveland gets free tickets because he bangs a drum all game long, then anyone can do it.

That guy gets free tickets? I couldn't imagine having to sit near him. It annoys the hell out of me to hear that banging when Cleveland is doing well against the Sox. I'm glad Cleveland blew it and didn't win the pennant. Between the drum, the red Indian guy on their hats and the story Fenway told of getting beer thrown on him, because he was wearing a White Sox hat, makes me think of them as less than human.
