What should have been a fairly benign good news article about the flood of ticket sales for the 2008 season took an ugly turn, when Patrick "Benedict Arnold" Elster announced that the Blue Jays are selling tickets for an April series with Detroit as part of a special package to Tigers fans.
Look, we know that the Red Sox fans are going to make their way north to throw beer on unsuspecting Jays fans, and that the douchey Yankee faithful from western New York are going to fill the seats on certain weekends. But to sell directly to the fans of the opposition? How's that gonna play when they're cheering their lungs out at a Miguel Cabrera moonshot?
Yeah, we know that Pat Elster is going to get credit from the corporate types for his "out of the box" thinking to fill the seats. "We would not offer games (to other fans) that we believed we would sell out on our own," the traitorous bastard told the Toronto Star.
We bet that fucker doesn't even remember Frank Tanana.
