Getting Eagles tickets

The day the NFL schedule is announced has become almost like a national holiday. Within minutes of the unveiling, Eagles fans are scratching down their W's and L's to see what they expect the Birds' record will be.

The second quasi-national holiday is when Eagles single-game tickets go on sale. That comes Thursday at 10 a.m.

They usually are all gone within minutes, except for the lucky few who manage to snag them.

Tell us your stories of finally getting those elusive tickets, or of the many ways you have tried in the past only to come up short.

And if you have been one of those lucky few, or want to be, give us a hint as to what your strategy will be?

Don't worry, we won't tell ...
