In the mean time, I have a ticket for sale. It's a tier 1 ticket, so I paid $210 for it, but I'd be happy to take any offers. I'm in DFW, Texas, but if you are out of the area and willing to pay for the shipping costs, I can rush mail it with insurance and everything.
Hopefully my not getting to go will help someone else get a chance they may not have gotten otherwise. :)
