Social Media Adventure Goes Undercover at the Phoenix Suns Playoff Game

Well, not really undercover, per se… but I did get to wear a press badge. 😉

Here’s the story:

Phoenix Suns vs LA Lakers

Too bad it didn't work....

After seeing the Suns lose to the Lakers in game 5 of the NBA Semi-Finals, I decided that I needed to see game 6 in Phoenix a few days later.  The next day I was flying to Arizona, in search of a ticket.

I figured that I had it in the bag: good friends of mine who have season tickets had a conflicting family event that night, not to mention the fact that I used to go to boy scouts with one of the Vice President of the Phoenix Suns.

He he, I had no idea I’d be so lucky to score a press pass!

Here’s how it went down….

I was chatting briefly with my friend Beverly Kidd who was also trying to get tickets for the game. I thought I was so cool that I offered to check my sources to find a ticket for her as well.  She politely said “Thanks, I really appreciate it.”

In retrospect, I now know that she was mocking me…

Yes, Beverly is kind and sweet and everything nice and all that crap, but I think she really enjoyed calling me up to say that she didn’t need a ticket anymore because she had “Special VIP Free-Food-And-All-Access Press Tickets.”

Then she asked “How did your search for tickets turn out?” It was as if she knew that I didn’t get my tickets after all… she was rubbing it in, big-time, and her sadistic side showed up.

But hey, I’m not complaining. I got to see the NBA Semi Finals with a beautiful woman and free food.

Oh, and I kept the press pass. 😉
