Originally written December 07, 2012 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
We've seen some pretty strange NBA-related Craigslist ads over the years but this one posted by a Washington Wizards fan is up there.Usually, Craigslist posters will ask money for their tickets but in this strange twist, this Wizards wants you to take his tickets and he'll pay you.You can see the entire ad at this link and below is a small snipet from the lengthy ad:"My Wizards tickets are making my house feel like the one in Paranormal Activity. So how do I get rid of these pesky Wizareds tickets that make my bones shiver every time I walk past them? I must get rid of them before it is too late...These Wizards tickets are...PURE EVIL! In order to determine a proper strategy in giving away my tickets, I decided to use a few economic skills I learned while spending a billion dollars on graduate school. Costs incurred when going to a Wizards game include stress from commuting to DC, transportation costs, food & drink costs, ticket cost, opportunity cost of your valuable time, and the irreparable brain depreciation you get by watching Jan Vesely airball foul shots. Those costs are offset by the entertainment value gained from attending a game, more specifically the humor you experience by watching other Wizards fans yell funny negative things from the crowd after Jan Vesely airball foul shots."Here is what you need to do to earn the $10 dollars:The recipient must take a picture that shows the scoreboard at some point in the first quarter and then another of the final score.The recipient must also wear some sort of Wizards gear to prove that they aren't a Warriors fan. A hat or a shirt will suffice.And finally, the fan paying to give these tickets away requires that the recipient write a paragraph or two about their experience(Courtesy of Bush League Chronicles)
