Does Lynah East Need a Ticket Line?

Like any faithful Cornell alum living in the Boston area, I eagerly anticipated this morning. Why? Tickets for the annual Harvard-Cornell Men's Hockey match up at Lynah East were supposed to go on sale this morning. I even wore my big red underwear for good luck last night.

But now the ticketing website does not appear to be functional -- I can't even purchase tickets for the Harvard-Yale game, and it's certain that nobody would want to see that.

Rumors are flying over at eLynah: Some say that all the tickets were already bought out by the Cornell Club of Boston, others report that the website has crashed (which seems correct if I can't buy any tickets to any game), and still others say that they are only taking phone orders.

All the more proof that Harvard Hockey Sucks.

UPDATE: I just got through on the phone, and was able to secure four tickets in the Harvard student section (what could be more fun than that?) The gentleman on the phone, who made sure to tell me that he didn't go to Harvard, confirmed that the website is not functioning (it got "slammed" at 10AM), and that there were 100 people (mostly Boston College students I assume, lest the Lynah Faithful made the six hour trek to do their time in yet another line) waiting at the ticket office when it opened in the morning. The Cornell game will be sold out by noon.
