Cubs NLCS Tales From The Virtual Waiting Room

If you were lucky enough to be chosen to buy NLCS tickets Friday, you still might have to wait.

For those of you who were selected to get a chance to buy Cubs National League Championship Series tickets for the three possible home games at Wrigley Field next week, congratulations. If you didn't get selected, don't fret, because you still might get the chance to get something even more precious -- Cubs World Series tickets.

Having said that, let me not get too far ahead of myself. There is still work to do, both for the Cubs to get to the WS, and for you to get NLCS tickets if you were one of those selected.

The sale of NLCS tickets begins Friday at noon CT. They'll be opening up a Virtual Waiting Room for the email lottery winners shortly after this article posts. Usually that happens about 30 minutes before the sale begins, so I'd expect the VWR to be open around 11:30 a.m. CT.

I'd like to hear, and I'm sure others would too, about your experiences in the VWR if you're one of the lucky ones. How long are you waiting? Did you get tickets? Did you get bumped out of line by a browser glitch?

Post about your experiences here. And good luck!
