Addazio Can’t Download Mobile Ticket On iPod Touch, Will Miss Richmond Game
ALUMNI STADIUM — It was reported late Friday afternoon that Boston College head football coach Steve Addazio will miss this Saturday’s game against the Richmond Spiders because he is unable to download his mobile ticket onto his 2nd generation iPod Touch.
BC Athletics implemented the new ticketing process this year with the goal of making entry to on-campus athletic events easier for fans. Many members of the Boston College community have run into major technical difficulties with this change.
When pressed by reporters, Coach Addazio made it very clear that his 2nd generation iPod Touch is his only handheld device with any sort of computer processing ability.
“My iPod Touch has been with me for over a decade, and it’s going to take a lot more than some fancy Silicon Valley AI tech startup ticketing app to make me replace it,” Addazio said, angrily holding back tears.
After fiddling with iPod for nearly four and a half minutes in an attempt to download the mobile ticket, Steve “Steve Addazio” Addazio had no choice but to accept the fact that the “newfangled” mobile ticketing system is simply not compatible with his device.
“It’s messed up,” he said while responding to a text on his LG enV3. “My iPod lets me watch all the football highlights in the world on the YouTube app, download ringtones from Crazy Frog, and even play Doodle Jump. But why in the world is it not Apple Wallet-integrated?”
At press time, Director of Athletics Martin Jarmond was seen attempting to explain to Addazio for the forty-second time this week that “members of the coaching staff don’t need tickets to get into the game.”
