Where Are You Watching the A's Playoff Game? Got Tickets?

With a slight chance of rain tonight, will you head out to the Coliseum, bundle up at home or hit your local sports bar?

As the Oakland A's face the Detroit Tigers in the deciding final game of the American League Division Series Thursday evening, East Bay fans have several options, though tickets are in short supply.

The Oakland A's web site showed no tickets available, which means anyone who wants to join the crowd at the Coliseum will need to turn to scalpers or find some very generous friends. 

(CORRECTION: Link to StubHub was incorrect. It's fixed now.) StubHub showed about 1,700 tickets at 11:30 a.m., starting around $60 dollars for standing room, but the supply had dropped to about 1,500 shortly after noon. And if you're willing to take a chance Craigslist, sellers were offering tickets there as well.

The game is scheduled to begin at 6:37 p.m. and will be on TNT.

The weather forecast calls for temperatures in the upper 50s Thursday evening with a slight chance of rain.

Update: BART has announced that it will run trains with extra cars tonight due to the baseball playoff game and a Golden State Warriors preseason basketball game.
