Phony Texas Tech ticket confiscated

3 Nov

Desperately seeking admission into a sold-out event sometimes causes people, The Max included, to purchase tickets from strangers at the venue who have somehow come across an abundance. There’s a high risk of being ripped off… and that’s exactly what happened on Nov. 2 in Lubbock, Texas.

About 500 fans that thought they’d be permitted to enter the stadium to watch the Texas-Texas Tech game were surprised when they were refused entry for possessing counterfeit tickets. After forking over about 200 bucks for what turned out to be worthless pieces of paper, the guys and gals who got scammed were outraged. And so was The Max … until we actually looked at one of the phony tickets. Then we reversed our decision and felt it was the buyers’ fault. You be the judge:
