Basketball, lesbians, idiots, and goat ropers. And a ticket giveaway!
The sad thing about this entire story is that some local news outlet will ask the Lynx to comment on this idiot’s take on something he doesn’t appear to know anything about. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised; it looks like he makes his entire living by making stupid comments about things he doesn’t appear to know anything about.
Here’s my suggestion as to how to handle this situation: everyone should take the time to visit Chris Baker’s KTLK web page. Download one of his podcasts, pop it in your car, and drive on down to the Target Center to catch a Lynx game. It will take all of about 2 minutes in the 1st quarter for you to realize which entertainment option is actually worth your while.
… It’s a tough choice, I know. World class athletes playing a game of precision skill and agility or social commentary that you can find at the end of a bar in your local pub or on the rear bumper of a rusty old 57 GMC pick up truck with a gun rack.
There’s more to it. And visual aids. But you get the gist. (via locally-born awesome-tastic WNBA resource Women’s Hoops Blog)
If you’re still not sure and need help making your decision, I’ve got a pair of tickets for Friday night’s Lynx game vs San Antonio. These are my regular season tickets in Section 111, Row K; we’ve got a seat upgrade for the night and will be down in front (a season ticket holder perk).
First person to email me at elmauter AT gmail DOT com gets ’em. UPDATE: Tickets are spoken for. Thanks for playing.
We just beat them in San Antonio on Sunday. They’re the top team in the Western Conference and have only lost twice on their home floor, so for us to beat them by 14 was huge.
Other good reasons to go to a Lynx game:
- Friday, July 25, is Ladies Night Out. Get dinner before the game at the Melting Pot, a spa gift certificate, and a pretty good seat at the game, all for $30.
- Sunday, July 27 is the last home game before the Olympic break. If you show a valid transit pass at the Target Center box office, you get a discount on your ticket. It’s also the official Seimone send-off and the first 2500 fans get a t-shirt.
- For any game, you can get a meal deal package (pizza/pop/ticket) for $15.
- Dads and Daughters get 50% off tickets for every Sunday game.
- Bike to the Sunday, July 27 game, and get free, secure bike parking and half off a $10 ticket.
- Sunday, July 27, is your chance to see Candace Parker who can dunk the ball (though hopefully she won’t dunk on us).
- The Lynx are having a better season than the Timberwolves did.
