I saw it in JSOnline.com, and thought...sure...nosebleeds, but I thought I'd try anyhow.

I ended up with four Loge Infield box seats for free. This is an extremely classy move, and my kids are extremely excited.

I've been too poor to pay attention lately, so this is going to be a real treat for my gang.

I don't know if it's still open or not, but go to the Brewers website and click on the Gagne giveaway graphic. The password is Gagne.

Now hopefully they win!

That's a really cool idea. It's nice to see a player give back to the fans like that

Heard on the radio that those tickets sold out in 19 minutes. I estimate that it cost him slightly less than $250K, so that's 1/40 of his yearly salary. But good for him. It won't stop the boo birds if he costs them a game though.

We had a fun night courtesy of Eric Gagne, and got to see a walk of grand slam to boot!

PLUS...they handed out vouchers for a free ticket to a game in the 2009 season as well. So this ended up being 2 games for the price of none...not bad at all.

We also got to see karma in action. When Gagne came to the mound, some drunk started yelling "Thanks for the tickets now wheres our other 9.9 million"...he ended up wearing someones soda when Braun hit the grand slam.

I think 1/40 of a salary for one night to give back to the fans is a LOT OF FUCKING MONEY and a really classy move.

They shouldn't boo this guy even if he does blow a game. It's just A GAME and all.
