So, Eddie Vedder was right about TicketMaster?

Responding to BiL in Manglish, oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

The sad part about the demise of Manglish is that I'm guessing that most people underestimate the care that went into each post. First I had to draft a particularly clever response, I couldn't have someone bother to decipher the message just to discover that it was "Drink your Ovaltine". Then I had to craft a whole new dialect. Manglish was a tribute to the Ballpark Guys Mannyglish, which was of course is in turn a tribute to Manny Acta's speech patterns. I started with the Mexican dialect and added in generous portions of Asian, Jar Jar Binks, and Tweebonics to get the perfect mix.

PB - so are they doing a movie about you like they did about the Navajo code talkers?  Who plays you?  John Malkovich?

The United use TicketMaster and they do at least one thing better than Tickets.com, print at home tickets are all printed in one batch rather than having to open the ticket links one at a time and printing each ticket individually.

Can't wait to do some old time RFK tailgating tonight.

I warned BiL too, dumbass.

That he did. I didn't think my post was that brazen but I defer to the moderators. They're usually right on these counts.

The best thing about this board is the incredibly aggressive moderators. And if you don't occasionally get flagged, well, you're just not trying hard enough. :mg:

So if I buy 8 to opening day and have to mail 2 each to 4 partners, how do I split the links?

With Tickets.com its all one link, you have to tell the guy receiving the email which tickets to select to print. Same deal with ticketmaster, the only difference is that instead of opening one page (ticket) at a time you would either print all the tix and trash the extras or select the option to print the current page for the ones you need.

From the Sports Bog, the Nats are working to get their logo on license plates in MD, DC, and VA and they're taking pre-orders now for Maryland and the District.  Interesting note from the Bog man is that the Nats website states that the fee will be up to $100, while both MD and DC have a fee of $25 for specialty plates.   Wonder who pockets the extra $75?

Quote
The proposal introduced to the District in 2011 that paved the way for such offerings set certain guidelines for team plates. According to the proposal, the plates would all cost $25 and the team’s logo would be displayed to the left of the plate’s numbers. Maryland’s Motor Vehicle Administration also puts a $25 price tag on all specialized plates, so I’m not sure what the email’s “up to $100″ purchase price covers.

Virginia has really inexpensive affinity plates.

While on the topic, saw this in a Bethesda garage yesterday parked just across the aisle from my own "NATS 9"

Nats bases on balls?  Is that John Lannan's car?  Maybe HRod could get Nats HBP as his tags.

I've never had this problem so I'm not sure of the degree of difficulty, but have you looked into ways to spoof the MLB feed into thinking that you're located in some other state?

Yeah... may have done that once in a while. Problem is, Lynchburg's internet is so slow, download speeds of 20 MBPS, 3 MBPS per upload, running it behind an internet proxy, slows it down even further to nothing more than a collection of moving pictures.

20mbps is more than enough to stream MLB.tv in HD.  The proxy's speed is what's killing you.
