Not the tickets in question

Not the tickets in question

Programming note: No more posts the rest of today, and we'll see about Thursday and Friday. The house sitter is set, and we're off on a mini-vacation. But before we leave, please do enjoy this tale of ticket counterfeiting:

Two men charged with counterfeiting Super Bowl tickets at Kinko’s could be watching the big game from behind bars.

Damon Daniels, 43, of Jamaica and Eugene Fladger, 32, of Philadelphia were arrested inside a Bronx White Castle Monday for running a phony ticket operation, according to the Queens District Attorney. Not only did they sell tickets to this weekend's championship game, they also sold parking passes and tickets to Super Bowl events around town, prosecutors said Tuesday.

The National Football League tipped off the NYPD in December.

Soon after, officers set up a sting operation, posing as eager football fans buying tickets from Daniels and Fladger.

Sounds like a Hold Steady song gone awry.
