Colts Fans Scalping Tickets to Free Tour of New Lucas-Oil Stadium

Hundreds of Indianapolis Colts fans lined up for free tickets to walk through the new Colts stadium. In a month. Now you can see why Indianapolis's advertising slogan is, "Like Detroit without the culture." Tickets to tour the stadium are going for as much as $75 online now. Some Colts fans were understandably peeved about their failure to get free tickets to walk inside an empty football stadium.

Cue the IndyStar, "Rick Paskett, a lunch-hour visitor to the Fieldhouse, stomped his foot in frustration on the brick steps outside the box office after reading a “Sold Out” sign on the door.Paskett wanted to see the inside of the stadium but won’t go online to pay for tickets that were supposed to be free to the public.

"(The tour would) be about the nearest way to get a look at it other than seeing it on TV," Paskett told the paper.

About the nearest way indeed, Colts fans, about the nearest way.
