Gone in 11 minutes

The New York Football Giants had 6000 playoff tickets available for sale at 1 PM on 1/3/2006. I decided to get in line at a Ticketmaster location in Manhattan. I was 36th in line at the Broadway and 66th St. Tower Records. I think 13 people got in the door and got tickets before all 6000 were sold out across all of Ticketmasters retail locations. It was raining and real cold, but it felt good to at least try and score tickets. On Giants.com, it says the tickets were gone in 11 minutes, which seems about right to me. No permanant link on the 11 minute stat, its just there on the main page.
