This is either one of the smartest things I have done or one of the dumbest. Yeah, the above line is a good start to a movie, or a book.  Or a crappy blog.  Whatever works. I own probably more playoff tickets besides someone called Herb Kohl. Here’s the deal and try to follow…  there’s a lot going on here. Here’s the theory: Last time the Milwaukee Bucks played the Miami Heat on December 29th the lower bowl tickets at the BEMO were between 300 and 800.  I know because I wanted to see Lebron in his prime but couldn’t justify the cash.  (I never saw Bird, Magic, Jordan, or Shaq and I regret that.  I will see the King in his prime!)  Since Dec. 29th, the Heat won 27 games in a row and became the best show on earth since the Rodman / Jordan Bulls.  So, I checked what game 3 and 4 (home games for the Bucks) were going for and they were $129 for the lower bowl.  So I bought 32.  15 for game 3, 17 for game 4.  (My ideas was to get 4 tickets with some buddies, 1 each and that snowballed to my current investment)  So…it should be a $4,000 investment  that will turn into at least $8,000 in a few weeks and stubhub.com will make a few hundred off the transactions.  Or I double my money and STILL GO SEE LEBRON for free.  No FRIGGIN BRAINER.  Right? The Risk: Bucks hold the 8th spot and the Celtics are up 2.5 games for the 7th.  Let’s say David Stern gets involved (what?) and rigs some games (never?!?)  and decides a Celtics/Heat match up is way better than the Bucks and Heat and somehow the Bucks make up 2.5 games with 8 left.  They would play the PACERS.  (Basically the 1 is locked.)   Holy moses I own 32 tickets for the Pacers (is Rik Smits still on the team?) and the Bucks.  There’s a game I don’t want to see (nor will anyone else.) Or Lebron gets hurt.   Value goes way down. Or the Bucks don’t make the playoffs (almost impossible.)  But upside, I get all my money back, so really no worries there. I haven’t told the boss lady at home yet.  Maybe she has a weekend getaway or a 40th birthday, can’t miss, party I have to go to.  I will tell her after I made the money. The Upside I triple my money take some customers and some buddies and take them all on my dime, they pick up dinner and drinks and we see Lebron and the time of our lives.  (All tickets are in 211, row M and N, so they are all together.  I still net some coin and SEE LEBRON AND HAVE A GREAT TIME.) The dates and times are not rolled out yet.  Based on last year’s playoff schedules (yeah I went deep), one of the games will be either Friday or Saturday night which is sweet. I bought them 24 hours ago and as of this morning they are up 7.8%.  For real.  Go Celtics! **************** Keep an eye on this article… I will keep you posted…. — Roste Beefe P.S. I don’t recommend this form of investment…but it sure is fun!
