Buyer Beware

Maybe this goes into the you-can’t-blame-a-guy-for-trying department. Maybe it’s just mean, mean-spirited and stupid. But a guy was arrested before Saturday’s Notre Dame-Penn State game for allegedly selling counterfeit tickets.

School officials indicated at least 100 people were turned away with counterfeit tickets, which must have produced a lot of interesting comments at the Notre Dame Stadium gates.

With demand at an all-time high, Penn State game tickets were being sold on the Internet for more than $1,000. That price is likely to climb for Saturday’s battle with No. 10 Michigan.

So what’s a high roller to do? Either be very careful with your disposable income or become Charlie Weis’ new best friend. Otherwise, you could be very disappointed come Saturday.
