Kevin, I got in on just a 56K modem. Got through three times, actually, trying for $55 and $75 tickets before hitting on the $105 tickets. I'm guessing what happened was those who went "best available" snagged all the top ones, those who are fans but not rich snagged the bottom ones quickly ... and I was able to luck out and get the middle ones because no one was requesting those specifically. It was either "down close" for the rich fans or "cheap as can be" for the not-so-rich fans. lol.
Not to be overly critical (oops), but seeing a thread about being super-thrifty when buying groceries on one part of the board, and then reading this thread about spending several hundreds of dollars on a WM ticket... makes me scratch my head.
