The Boss ain't such a Boss

Line short for Springsteen tickets at Eastern Michigan University

An hour before Bruce Springsteen tickets were to be distributed for Monday's free acoustic concert at Eastern Michigan University, only 20 people were in line.

The first fan arrived from Grand Rapids at 4:30 a.m. Friday. Brad Berry, 54, has seen Springsteen about 15 times and saw Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama in May in Grand Rapids. He said he was alone until 6:30 when a second person showed up. And they were alone until 7:30.

All said they were shocked that so few people were in line.
