Today I won a silent auction for two courtside tickets to tonight's Timberwolves-Hornets game. The face value of the tickets are $750 each. I paid (for a good cause) $110 for both of the tickets. In case you were wondering I paid 7.3% of the face value. For that $110 I get two courtside tickets, valet parking, and free drinks and food before the game and also at halftime. Just recently I paid $100 for two lower level (20 rows up on the first baseline) tickets to the Twins home opener. Who knew for only $10 more I could get courtside tickets to the Twolves? Anyway, I am taking M, who gets to celebrate not only courtside tickets, but also the end of college basketball season and the end of the Twolves season.
There will be more to come later, but for now this will have to do.
