THE FLYERS ARE in the Stanley Cup finals, which can only mean one thing: The Craigslist crazies are on the power play. Remember the female Phillies fan who tried to trade sex for World Series tickets? Well, she either isn't into hockey, or she learned her lesson. As of last night, no such offers had been made. However, someone in Phoenixville posted the following: "Help! I am a dedicated Flyers' fan and my wife will not let me buy tickets. I am willing to trade her washer and dryer for two tickets to Games 3 or 4 in Philadelphia.

THE DELAYS WITH the process of applying for tickets to the first- and second-round NCAA Tournament games at the Wachovia Center next spring have been well-documented. But if you've waited this long and haven't heard anything, be assured they aren't still doubledribbling the lottery. Spokesmen for the Wachovia Center and Saint Joseph's University, the hosts for the games set for March 19 and March 21, said e-mails were sent to everyone who applied several months ago and that letters went out to all those who were picked in the lottery and would be receiving tickets.

Hundreds of Rolling Stones concert tickets are still available to fans who didn't wait in line at JFK Stadium on Aug. 5. There's just one catch: You'll have to win a contest or pay inflated prices to get them. "Four Rolling Stones tix. Good 200 lvl. $75 each," read one classified ad in the Daily News and the Inquirer. Entertainment Plus, a Marlton-based ticket agency, advertised Stones tickets without mentioning a price. A call to the agency found them selling from $50 to $75, the latter price for 100-level seats.

Ah, the creative promotion. It is a staple at NBA arenas. Bobblehead dolls. Celebriducks. Spiderman giveaways (a recent fad). Now, the Memphis Grizzlies have pushed the creativity envelope. Winless in their first 11 games, they gave two tickets to a future Grizzlies game to anyone displaying a permanent tattoo last night. The jazzy name of the promo: Tix for Tats. Allen Iverson will be proud (although the Grizzlies' public relations department pointed out that Jason Williams also sports many a tattoo)

WHEN PHILLY native Michael Bayer heard about the ticketing system for papal events in Philadelphia, he was beside himself knowing that it would be nearly impossible to get 55 tickets for the busload of college students he was bringing from Iowa. So Bayer, director of outreach and education at the University of Iowa's Newman Catholic Student Center, took to traditional media and social media to share his story and to air his concerns. Over the weekend, his prayers were answered when a courier delivered 55 tickets to Bayer for both the Festival of Families and the papal Mass on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
