Sir, just how badly do you want to see the World Series?
- Since the 14,000 tickets set aside by the ball club are expected to sell out in a matter of minutes this morning, fans who aren’t so lucky will have to turn to alternative sources for seats.
Buyers and sellers have already posted hundreds ads on the Internet message board Craigslist.org, including one seller who has a very unusual proposition for the male fans.
In a message posted Tuesday, a woman likely to acquire a pair of upper reserve tickets to the World Series says she’s looking to trade the seats for healthy sperm.
She’s trying to get artificial inseminated and needs a sperm donor. She says frozen donor sperm from a reputable sperm bank costs $250-$350 a vial, and the insemination process requires two vials a month.
Two upper reserve tickets for a World Series game between the Giants and Anaheim Angels, however, cost anywhere from $250 at face-value to more than $1,000.
“You can bet that the child will be raised a Giants fan,” the woman wrote.
The message was removed by late morning – maybe she got her man.
