St. Louis Blues Go Full Wonka, Hide Free Playoff Tickets for You to Find

First, you need to like the Blues on Facebook. Then you follow them on Twitter, and then you fill out a form found here
. On the day of the giveaway, those three elements come together to give you an email clue early in the day about the general location of the tickets, followed by a tweet that announces the time the tickets will be hidden, and then comes a photo posted on Facebook that will show the exact location of the tickets.
That's a lot of social media interaction, which means a 12-year-old is probably going to win it. Darn kids -- get off my lawn! And give me those tickets.
The first two games of the Blues vs. Los Angeles Kings second-round playoff games don't have set dates yet, but they're guaranteed to be at the Scottrade Center. They'll set you back a tidy $65 to $442 a pop, plus service fees of course, and they're going fast. You could, however, win a pair if you're willing to play the St. Louis Blues Playoff Ticket Hunt game, a sort of high-tech scavenger hunt set up by the team.
