Ticket Availability Remains High For BCS Title Game; Prices Dropping As Game Approaches

IT PAYS TO DISCOVER: Davis in a separate piece reports Notre Dame fan Dan Scaminace sent an e-mail to Discover Chair & CEO David Nelms, whose company sponsors the national championship game, "pleading his case" for tickets, and his words "struck a sympathetic chord" with the credit card company. Soon after Scaminace's e-mail, Discover reps "showed up at his home in Minnetonka, Minn., to award him with tickets for two club level seats as well as airline tickets and hotel accommodations." Scaminace in the e-mail "promised to cut up all of his credit cards from other companies, transfer outstanding balances to Discover and donate his earned cashback balance to charity." He also plans to "name a new dog Discover" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 1/4).
