Giants fans get unwelcomed emails

Less than one hour after earning a trip to the Super Bowl with Sunday’s thrilling 20-17 overtime victory in San Francisco, the Giants started delivering some bad news to many of their season ticket holders.

The team sent out emails announcing the results of
a random computer selection that determined who would get a chance to buy Super Bowl tickets. It was based on seniority, but the randomness of the process left many fans out in the cold.

“Talk about a downer,” season ticket holder Bob Gray of West
Caldwell told The Associated Press after getting the email while he was still
celebrating. “At least they could have waited until the next day.”

The Giants are allotted roughly 9,700 tickets for the game. Players, coaches and officials get a share of that total.
