Sex-for-World Series tickets defendant convicted on one charge, acquitted on another

Mar 26, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

Big day for prostitution news in baseball, as Susan Finkelstein, the Phillies fan who was charged with trying to trade a little slap and tickle for World Series tickets was acquitted on the prostitution beef last night, but was convicted of attempted
prostitution by a Bucks County, Pennsylvania jury.

Finally, the people of Bucks County, Pennsylvania can sleep soundly at night, secure in the knowledge that, at long last, their streets are once again safe from marauding hordes.

    Best part of the article — the prosecutor tried to deny that this was a waste of public money. He then explained he was a Yankee fan.
    Now even Yankee fans think they have unlimited budgets.

    And somewhere, a guy who stole from, defrauded or assaulted someone else is enjoying their freedom, laughing it up. All because the police felt the need to go after Ms. Finkelstein and not an actual, offender. A brilliant world we live in folks.

    We would have never heard about this if she was 24 instead of 44.

    Sure we would have. And, if she was half way decent looking she’d be doing a Playboy pictorial and probably getting her own reality show.

    Amazing. I remember hearing “ball ya for a ticket!” outside every Dead show I ever saw – and I saw a lot of them. Granted you maybe had to be pretty desperate to give up a chance to hear Jerry and the guys for a parking lot biffy with one of…those. But I never saw the vice squad move in on one of ‘em. I never even had a joint confiscated, come to think of it.
