So I bought 3 tix to the Lakers' playoff games, but I live in Northern California so I planned to sell 2/3. The one I wanted to go to was Game 1 of the 2nd round (yes I'm counting my chickens before they hatch, worst case scenario is a refund anyway).
Anyhow, the other 2 were for Round 1 Games 1 & 2. I sold game 2 on ebay for double what I spent. Game 1, not so much. I screwed myself by getting greedy and having a friend outbid a legit buyer by 1$.
Now I will be driving down Sunday from south San Francisco around 4am to watch the game in Staples. Sleep at a friend's place in Hollywood and drive back-up Monday around 4am. There's no way I'm just eating the ticket and I might as well watch my first Laker playoff game while its the first playoff game of the post-season.
But now, to re-coup my expenses I will be selling the Round 2 ticket. Let's just hope they get that far, for my love of the Lakers and my wallet.
