On the day when Cal Ripken immortalized himself alongside Lou Gehrig in the annals of baseball history, Avrum Weiss got himself a ticket to the game for only $9."I just want to pay face value. I'm a taxpayer," said the 48-year-old Northwest Baltimore resident as he stood in the scalp-free zone outside Camden Yards before the game. "I'm not a big baseball fan. I want to be here for the history of the great moment. But I'm not going to pay hundreds of dollars for a ticket."Despite all the pageantry of the record-tying game, tickets were readily available for those willing to wait patiently in the scalp-free area.

When the national touring production of "The Book of Mormon" hits Baltimore later this month as part of the Broadway Across America series at the Hippodrome, the multiple Tony Award-winning musical will bring a bargain ticket offer with it. There will be a lottery drawing for $25 tickets before each performance during the run, Feb. 25 to March 9. This practice, a popular feature of the show on Broadway (there the lottery tickets are $32), has been adopted on the tour as well, attracting hundreds of participants at some stops.

Two tickets bore the winning numbers in Maryland's $15 million Lotto game -- one bought in Baltimore County, the other in Montgomery County -- a State Lottery spokesman said today. Only once since the Lotto game began in 1973 was the jackpot larger, the $21 million pot won last August. The prospect fueled ticket sales of close to $2 million in the last 2 1/2 hours before last night's drawing, said spokesman Carroll H. Hynson Jr. The prize for each ticket is $375,000 a year for 20 years, before taxes.

Christina Spearman dug out her best high school formal gown, took the day off work and headed down to the Inner Harbor on Friday morning to realize the dream of a lifetime. She was getting an Oscar. OK, that's a stretch. What she was actually getting, thanks to an 11-city Oscar Roadtrip that stopped in Baltimore, was the chance to pose with an Oscar — to hold the 81/2-pound gold-plated statuette for a few seconds and have her picture snapped with it. But the degree of difference between her and the movie folks who actually will walk away with an Oscar on Feb. 24, when the Academy Awards are presented in Hollywood, was pretty minimal.

Ben Cummins of Baltimore purchased two Nintendo Wii game consoles during pre-Christmas shopping: one to give his 7-year-old daughter, Lauren, the other to trade for two tickets to Tuesday's Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana concert at 1st Mariner Arena. Cummins, who last week had yet to tell Lauren that he was trying to secure tickets for her and her mom, wasn't picky about seating for the eagerly anticipated concert. "I'm just trying to get them in the building," he said. Yet since he advertised the console-for-concert trade on Craigslist on Dec. 20, he's had no takers.
