Blasted by a chorus of furious boos, Colorado Rockies officials suspended World Series ticket sales early this afternoon until computer server problems are fixed. "Virtually the entire allotment of tickets that were on sale are still available," Rockies spokesman Jay Alves said at Coors Field as fans chanted: "We want tickets! We want tickets!" "We certainly hope to have it back here shortly," Alves said.The company selling the tickets claims to be surprised:
Paciolan Inc., which provides ticketing networks to Major League Baseball and 700 college and professional teams, was "amazed and overwhelmed" when it was flooded by 8.5 million hits for tickets in 90 minutes, Alves said.Here's the Rockies' press release (pdf). Stay tuned for news as to when the sales will resume. It's ridiculous that this wasn't anticipated.
