    Chio says Susan Finkelstein will pick her two World Series tickets up at 3 p.m. on Friday at Gary Barbera's on The Boulevard.

    The woman accused of offering sex in exchange for World Series tickets to an undercover police officer told a local radio host that she and her husband are not swingers, despite recent reports.

    Susan Finkelstein, the Phillies fan who posted a Craigslist ad saying that she was in desperate need of World Series tickets and “maybe we can help each other,” is having her 15 minutes of fame, as she makes her way around the television and radio circuit today.

    At 8 a.m. today she spoke to “Chio in the Morning” on Wired 96.5. Chio announced Wednesday that he’s giving Finkelstein free tickets to the Phillies-Yankees championship series.

    “In America, you are innocent until proven guilty,” Chio said in defense of his decision.

    In the brief interview today, the 43-year-old married woman said that despite reports by other media, she and her husband Jack are not swingers.

    “The only swinging she’s interested in is Chase Utley swinging the bat,” said Finkelstein’s lawyer William Brenner, who also spoke on the show.

    The West Philly woman described her love for the Phillies as “diehard.”

    “I live and die with every pitch,” she said.

    Finkelstein was glowing in her newfound fame, saying that more than 800 people have “friended” her on Facebook in the past two days.

    Among the listener e-mail Chio read aloud, one said, "If you legalize prostitution, women would rule the country."

    “Thank you for standing behind me,” she said to her “fans.”

    Finkelstein also spoke on the “Opie and Anthony” radio show, saying that she was only flirting with the undercover cop, hoping to get a cheaper price.

    She is also slated to appear on Fox News and Inside Edition today.
