You know who deserves to get ripped off? The NIU fan in Chicago who nearly bought fake Orange Bowl tickets.
This just defies logic.
A man was arrested over the weekend after attempting to sell a police officer fraudulent tickets to a Bowl Championship Series college football game, authorities said.
Christopher Smith, 22, of the 6800 block of South Merrill Avenue, was arrested at 7:35 p.m. Saturday and charged with misdemeanor theft, police said.
Through Craigslist, Smith had arranged to meet with a buyer and sell him two tickets to the Orange Bowl for $600 each.
The purchase proceeded as planned, but the buyer became suspicious after discovering the tickets he had bought contained multiple mistakes in grammar and spelling, according to a police report obtained by the Tribune.
Look, you can buy $15 tickets right now on StubHub. Want a 4th row seat? $200. The most expensive Orange Bowl seat on StubHub is only $429.
Hence, the moron actually deserves to get ripped off with the $600 seats.
