Morning Free Association: Fake Out

Embed from Getty Images

Over the weekend, an event popped up on the Boston Bruins Facebook page regarding an unnamed event occurring at 7pm on June 30th. On the mobile site of the event page, there is a link to purchase tickets which seems like a legitimate Ticketmaster link. However, it is either a placeholder address that accidentally was linked in the event or something potentially more malicious.

When clicked upon, the link sent to a real Ticketmaster page with some slightly higher than normal ticket prices.

Ha ha LOL

When using a normal browser to look for this event on the Ticketmaster website, it does not exist.

So, this has been your public service announcement regarding no hockey planned in your immediate future.

Yeah, that ‘event’ sure seems like a placeholder.
$10,000 per seat seems like a nice, round value chosen to be unreasonably high, so if someone finds the event listing that they will not buy a ticket.
It’s probably there to allocate some event number or some such in one of the reservation systems.

Am curious what they were planning for. A playoff game, perhaps?

Good Morning!!
That’s the best fake we’ve seen in quite some time!! Probably the best for a while.
Mac rolls on! Jo spoke with her last night. She’s not out of the woods yet, but seems much better.
Trying to make the most of my time right now. Super busy!! We went to the hills…. Working on the house and yard are really therapeutic activities!!. I love being in them, there hills!!

Sonia finds DIY activities relaxing. She has woodstained/painted all our fences during this lockdown! She couldn’t just sit and read a book – feels like she has to be doing something. I’m the total opposite!

Keep fighting, Mac.

Morning all. I was quite productive this weekend. Made shortbread cookies and beef stew on Saturday. Did a bunch of cleaning on Sunday. I am very proud of myself.
