So that's what happens when cops seize tickets

Get right the fuck outta town.

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
About 10 city police officers are being investigated by internal affairs for allegedly using World Series tickets that had been seized from scalpers, Chief Joe Mokwa confirmed Sunday.
Really. Used them?! Monsters.

We weren't at the scene of the crime, but we had a feeling this is how things played out once the dirty cops confiscated the tickets:

Officer A: Hey guys, what should we do with these tickets?
Officer B: Turn them in as evidence, of course.
Officer C: Pussy.
Officer B: You have a better idea, C?
Officer C: Yeah, we sell them.
Officer A: And do what with the money?
Officer B: Buy our wives something nice?
Officer C: B, throw yourself off a fucking bridge.
Officer A: We could buy some nice stuff -- these tickets are worth a lot.
Officer C: My vote is for hookers. Or blow.
Officer A: I second that.
Officer B: I know how you guys like your drugs and women, but what if we give the tickets to our friends and family and all go the game?
Officer C: All those things I said, B...yeah, forget it. Great idea!

Don't know if the officers will do time in a minimum-security resort for this, but regardless the punishment, it'll be a small price to pay for seeing a World Series game. And for your home team winning it.

Damn, so THAT's what happened when the cop took my 2004 Sox-Yanks Game 5 tickets after I tried to scalp them. That's a real story too...

Sony Ericsson Takes Over Title said...

The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for four consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros – 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action. The men’s final is best 3-out-of-5 sets with every other match in both men’s and women’s singles and doubles will be best 2-out-of-3.
Known as Tennis' 5th Grand Slam, the Sony Ericsson Open is second only to the US Open in attendance for American events. Championship Tennis Tours since 1987 sells Sony Ericsson Open Tennis Tickets and Sony Ericsson Open Tennis Packages. Well also sell tickets to the French Open, Wimbledon, Sony Ericsson Open, Australian Open, Pacific Life Open and the Sony Ericsson Open.
