THE DRAMA that unfolded on baseball's final day reminded everyone just how riveting the game can be and created a stir among fans eager to see an equally exciting postseason. In a little under 24 hours, the frenzy spilled over to StubHub, the official secondary ticket marketplace of the MLB. According to a Phillies ticket office spokesperson, going through the secondary market is the only way to acquire a postseason ticket - which is perhaps the reason StubHub witnessed a 40 percent spike in page views yesterday.

The New England Patriots have won a bid to get the names of all the fans who bought or sold - or tried to buy or sell - tickets to home games through online ticket reseller StubHub Inc., a move one technology group sees as an invasion of privacy. In a lawsuit against San Francisco-based StubHub, a subsidiary of eBay Inc., claiming that the Web site encourages fans to break state law and violate team policies, the Patriots said they could seek to revoke season tickets of people who use StubHub.

Cheep! Cheep!   What's the strange sound come from StubHub and other ticket resellers? Why, it's Eagles tickets begging for someone to buy them. With the injury-riddled team floundering at 3-7, and many fans calling for an end to the Andy Reid era, many tickets are selling below half of face value on StubHub. "Given the economy and the time of the year, it's as tough as I've seen it since Rich Kotite," said Jeremi Conaway, vice president of Wanamaker Tickets in Center City.

Out on the sidewalk, business seemed pathetic. The sold-out Phillies game with the Los Angeles Angels, about to start, caused little obvious ticket buying or selling outside Citizens Bank Park. "I'm Little Joe Moe; if I make $100, I'm happy," said one middle-age guy willing to buy or sell a ticket, but not finding takers. "I'm struggling. " His customers already were inside. The box seats held plenty of newcomers. In the fourth row of Section 116, just behind the Phillies' dugout, Sam Benson of Holland, Bucks County, and three buddies celebrated his ninth birthday.

Call it frenzy, greed or hysteria, but if you planned to go to Citizens Bank Park to watch the Phillies defend their World Series title, you'd better have good friends or deep pockets. With the Phillies selling the majority of seats in advance to season ticketholders, the estimated 700-900 remaining tickets put up for lottery on the team's Web site last Thursday sold by 2:30 that afternoon, according to a Phillies ticket representative. But many of those coveted strips are finding their way back onto the Web sites of secondary ticket distributors, specifically StubHub, the official fan-to-fan marketplace of Major League Baseball.

When it comes to ticket sales, the Phillies are in a bit of a slump. For the second season running, the Phils are heading toward opening day at home (April 7 against the Milwaukee Brewers) with seats still to fill. And the team - although still a league leader - is looking at a significant drop in season-ticket sales, as well. "Our sales numbers are down," said John Weber, the Phillies' vice president of sales and ticket operations. "Last year, we had about 24,000 season-ticket holders.

Ferrer said the event page on the company's website for Game 5 had been viewed over 35,000 times, a clear indication that fans are not only searching for tickets but buying them - despite across-the-board price increases.

Piercing, dizzying, catlike yowls and screeches. Handmade posters draped with flashing Christmas lights held up by tireless young arms. Thousands raised from their seats with cheering mouths, singing and flailing away - it had to be a boy band. And it was. One Direction hit the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday, drawing a crowd of many who had bought tickets a year in advance - this show was sold out before 1D played the Susquehanna Bank Center in May 2012. The London-based 19- to 21-year-old pop band - Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson - were modestly dressed in T-shirts and jeans.

For the uninitiated, the curious and the quite confused (you know who you are . . . or maybe not), here's a rundown of the basics about Wing Bowl, disguised as a Q&A. What is Wing Bowl? It's an annual chicken-wing eating contest dreamt up by WIP morning-show cohost Al Morganti in 1993 so Eagles fans would have a reason to get excited the weekend of the Super Bowl. On radio, you'll hear the voluble voice of co-conspirator Angelo Cataldi as the master of ceremonies, with saner views from Rhea Hughes.
