I got a weird email in my inbox today about purchasing Mariners post-season tickets. Without thinking much, I simply deleted it and went on my merry way. Just a few minutes, I got a follow-up email, and this made me realize what had happened (bold mine):
“Earlier today, an email promoting Seattle Mariners postseason tickets was sent to you. This, unfortunately, was a mistake. We regret the error and apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.
The StubHub Team”
The bolded part is my favorite! I am currently wondering how many phone calls they might have received from Mariners fans who were unaware that the Ms didn’t make it to the playoffs this year.
