Virtual Waiting Room

It may be called the Virtual Waiting Room, but there’s nothing virtual about the stress it causes…

Spring Training tickets went on sale this morning, which meant I was camped out in front of three different computers, watching the Virtual Waiting Room refresh itself every thirty seconds. Luckily I had some help from my cat, although let’s be honest – she was only watching one computer, so I had to keep an eye on the other two all by myself!

I actually got through after only an hour, and my mother and father both got through two hours later. They spend three months in Florida every year, conveniently matching up with Spring Training. We were able to get the games we wanted – three during the week when I go visit, and one game a week for them after I go home. While I was waiting, I watched Game 4 of the 2007 World Series from the commemorative DVD set.

I’m really happy I was able to get everything I wanted. I didn’t even have the computer crash midway through, or lose my internet connection, or have the image verification picture fail to load, or have the “you have 1 minute to complete this page” take more than a minute to load, all of which have messed up potential orders of mine in the past.

But the real test will come next Saturday, when we try for the elusive Sox Pax and games in April and May. The cat’s ready to help out again, but with three computers going, I may need to get a dog.
