The Lansdowne Village
A Lansdowne Village
There are tents set up on the sidewalk, and chairs and pillows and people. It turns out that a rabid group of fans has been camping out since 1 p.m. on Thursday, hoping to score tickets for Game 3. The fans don't even know if any tickets will be released for day-of-game sales, but they're there anyway.

We start asking a few questions. Who are these people? "Talk to Dave," we're told. Who's Dave?
