Who Needs Tickets?

With just over 24 hours remaining until the kickoff of this year's "Game of the Century" (there seems to be one every year) between USC and Texas in the Rose Bowl, LAist is loving the feeding frenzy for tickets that is raging on popular swap-everything site Craigslist.

Last year you were able to buy a pair of tickets the day before the game off Craigslist at below face value and have them delivered to you anywhere in the city.

But this year, demand is through the roof thanks to the USC/National Championship factor, and locals are scrambling to find tickets for the game and paying big bucks to get them. But what really amuses LAist are the specialized pitches that many buyers are using to try to entice sellers to hook them up with tickets for the game.
