Virgin Mobile FreeFest tickets are still available -- for a good deed

Still looking for a ticket to the Virgin Mobile FreeFest? It's going to cost you some community service.

This morning, festival organizers and Howard County officials are expected to unveil the Summer of Service, a program that trades volunteer work like giving blood and cleaning parks for a much-coveted ticket to this year's FreeFest. Nearly 2,500 tickets will be available as part of the initiative.

The festival, which features headliners Blink-182, Weezer and Public Enemy, is being held Aug. 30 at Merriweather Post Pavilion. Here's a link to a piece in today's paper with more details about the Summer of Service.

What is this? Russia?

No. In Soviet Russia, volunteer works you.

I think the best part of this is that Larry the Cable Guy just got trumped by Yakov Smirnoff.
