Red Sox Win Before The World Series Starts

Well – that was predictable.  Rockies Blow Ticket-Sales Tech; World Series Next?  About 30 minutes after Rockies world series tickets went on sale online (the only place you could buy them) their systems crashed.  According to the Rockies Press Release, under 500 tickets were actually sold.  The MLB ticket vendor – Paciolan – claims that the traffic (8.5m hits in some unspecified period of time) took down all their North American customers.  Oops.  Glad I was wearing my Red Sox jacket around town today.  Maybe the Rockies should consider outsourcing the whole shebang to StubHub!
