One of the great things about professional athletes being on Twitter is that on certain occasions fans are given the opportunity to win free tickets. On Monday, Drew Gooden of the Milwaukee Bucks came up with a pretty gross idea that resulted in a lucky fan scoring tickets to his team’s game against the Chicago Bulls. On Tuesday, Arian Foster also gave away some free tickets — albeit in a more sanitary way. If you look at Foster’s timeline on his Twitter account, it appears he was trying to go back and figure out what the first tweet he ever sent was. However, he was getting an error message after trying to go back more than a couple months. That’s when he decided to offer free Texans tickets to the first one of his followers who could find his first ever tweet. It seemed like Foster was giving up, but 295,000-plus people can do a lot of things that they put their minds to. And then, voila: WORD! RT @jennyjohnsonhi5: @arianfoster This guy found it… @rjhegedus I found his 1st tweet, need a solid twitter.com/RJhegedus/stat… — Arian Foster (@ArianFoster) November 27, 2012 Foster then let the follower choose a game he wants to attend and promised to send him tickets. In fact, there was a discrepancy over who discovered the tweet first so he even told another follower that she could have tickets to a game as well. Whether it be tweeting out your lunch location to give away tickets or holding a simple competition, we always commend athletes who take personal time to make a fan’s day.
