I have the best problem ever. An extra All Out ticket. Section 207 Row 2 Seat 1. A screenshot proving this is attached. Since i bought it impulsively on Seatgeek for myself before my friend confirmed he could also get to Chicago, i cant just put it up for resale so Im going to just give it away.
May I please ask you to post this on the BoD and propose a contest? Any reader who can get to the show and wishes to enter can comment with a short poem that can be one of two types.
A Haiku about Haku
A Limerick Thats Boffo
About The Genius Lanny Poffo
Or you can just have it. Whichever.
Way back in 1994 I gave an extra ticket to a praying Grateful Dead fan at Boston Garden and Ive never seen anyone happier since then. That proved to be the last Boston show Jerry Garcia was around to do as well.
I think this is a good opportunity to do something similar. The ticket will be transferred via email after I choose a winner based entirely off of my opinion of the submissions.
The deadline for submissions will be midnight Eastern US time (im in Miami) on Sunday August 29 and the ticket will be transferred to the winner on September 1 while im killing time in the airport waiting for my flight to Chicago.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you cant get to the arena on Sept 5 do not submit an entry! That would be a dick move to take it and not use it. If you want to post a poem for funsies, PLEASE write 'funsies' before the poem.
Also Id love to meet up with the winner and any other BoD readers going to the show at the PreParty hosted by The Wingmen across the street from the arena. Look for the Duggan/HBK/Zeus/Gibson-eyed chubby white guy in a Legit Leyla Hirsch shirt!
This will probably be a trainwreck but it may end up with a very happy fan and me feeling all warm and fuzzy in my tum tum. I am 100% serious about just giving the ticket to someone.
A can of Coke to ya!
Let the BoD Poetry Slam begin!
