Someone from the Jets just called to offer me an opportunity to buy season tickets for 2009.
It seems I landed on the team's waiting list when I registered for the new stadium PSL auction last fall, and my less-than-a-year of waiting paid off with my big chance to join the Mark Sanchez/Rex Ryan fun at the Meadowlands.
I politely declined. The woman politely asked me why. I said because I just don't want to buy season tickets. She asked why I was on the list. I told her about the PSL auction thing. She asked if I were interested in tickets for 2010. I told her I was not.
She asked whether she could take me off the waiting list. I told her I would like to stay on to continue receiving information about tickets in the future. She said the list mostly is for people actually interested in buying tickets. I said she could remove my name.
