Greg Packer Punks Philly Columnist

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:22 am

The latest guy to be suckered by Greg Packer is Ed Barkowitz of the Philadelphia Daily News:

Robinson was like a lot of Yankees fans who made the trip to Philadelphia for a chance to see their team close out their 27th World Series Championship. Tickets would be easier to get last night, they reasoned, than if the series continued in New York tomorrow.

Greg Packer, from Huntington, N.Y., paid $200 for a $125 seat in Section 302.

“That’s a bargain,” he said, “because if it goes to Game 6, tickets are going to be impossible.”

Ah, nothing’s impossible. You might have thought it would be impossible for Greg Packer to get himself quoted in Big Media any more, but you’d be wrong about that . . .

  1. We have a guy up here (NU Evanston) who decided to see if he could have fifty jobs in fifty states in fifty weeks. He did it, too. Now he’s writing a book about it.

  2. I applaud Mr. Packer, a one man wrecking crew of media credibility.

    Perhaps the media will eventually figure out that there are lots of publicity hounds like Packer, who says he only lies 5% of the time. Sort of like drinking, oh yeah, maybe a beer now and then, said he sipping his 4th of the day.

    Speaking of lying publicity hounds, what’s new in politics today?
