This according to the Jim Rome Show (info pulled from his website, http://www.jimrome.com/home/article/article_4.html):

You always hear those stupid radio station contests about ‘what would you do for tickets to the World Series’ or ‘the best email for a Matrix Reloaded DVD’. You know what I mean. You hear them all the time. The reason is because people will some stupid and crazy things. If it is free, there is a line.

Two women in New York are running ads that offer a ‘four-hand sensual massage’; in exchange for Yankees tickets.

Check out the ad:

“Two hot females will exchange four hand sensual massage for Yanks tickets. That’s correct. My friend and I do this from time to time and so we are really good at it. It is unbelievable. It ends as happily as we hope the Yankee game will. Serious replies only.”

Hmm, that’s subtle. Whatever in the world could they mean by ‘happy ending’?

And nice tag about ‘serious replies only’. Like offering a ‘four-handy’ isn’t going to get every kook in the tri-state area to reply.

Handies for baseball tickets. Can it get any worse? Is this what it has all come to now?

What I want to know is, how many ‘handies’ for how many tickets? And do I get more ‘handies’ if my tickets are to the World Series instead of just the ALCS if the Yankees make it that far? I mean, the ad wasn’t exactly specific in that regard.

One ticket, two tickets, 8…what? Do they have to be good seats or can they be behind the foul pole, high up in the corner? These are things I would need to know if I’m going to part with Yankees tickets.




Edit: Added link to the article on Jim Rome's website, plus his entire article because it will probably be taken down after tomorrows show

So, what payment does she and her friend usually accept if tickets to a post season Yankee game aren't part of the equation?

Funny, I was thinking "Can it get any better? After all, the ad does say "Two hot females". Seems to me that if you have really good seats to the game and you're willing to dicker, err, I mean bargain, well....

I have to wonder how hot these females really are. What would a guy do if he gets there and "hot" proved to be a misnomer? How awkward would backing out of that deal be?

They could just crank up the heat wherever this is going to take place. Then claim that by "hot", they meant temperature-wise.

Series is tied at 2; it's gonna have to go six. Now, if anyone has Game 7 tickets they should start shopping for a frame now because the Soxare on a roll. They ride the Fenway crowd and a kickass start from Lowe today and then with no off day the Yankees can't possibly recover. It's just like we did to Oakland, except with less travel.



Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.

Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.

I wish ANYONE but that moron who intefered with Alou in Game 6, seemingly costing the Cubs 8 runs against, would have had those tickets.

Not to mention Alex Gonzalez's complete flop of that groundball.

I'm not a Cubs fan, by any means, but that fan probably has a beating in his future.
