Found March 28, 2013 on Down and Distance:
PLAYERS: Troy Aikman
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens

Robert Pham (Credit: Alameda County Sheriff) According to Mike Rosenberg of the San Jose Mercury News, 37 year old Robert Pham was arrested after advertising himself as a Baltimore Ravens fan, and selling 4 tickets to the Super Bowl on Craigslist. Sharon Osgood of Hayward, CA allegedly paid $5,900 to Pham for the tickets, however when the package arrived all that was found were taunt letters. One of the letters said “GO Ravens! LOL!” Pham has a bail set at $20,000 and is held in Coral Springs, Fla. he has been charged with one count of felony theft by false pretenses. Pham had told officials that he did indeed sent the tickets, and that someone had removed them, but evidence does not seem to support his claim. After hearing about their story the 49ers, Ticketmaster, and StubHub offered the Osgoods free tickets to attend the game. They even got to spend time with Troy Aikman for breakfast in New Orleans. “We got to go to the game, and that’s all we ever wanted,” Osgood said. “Yeah, we lost $5,900, but we still got to the game, and we had an awesome time.” The family did say however that they wouldn’t be purchasing any tickets on Craigslist ever again.
