Before I say who won the contest, let me say I really appreciate all of the kind words about the idea. I know I am opinionated and often people
wrongfully disagree with me, but I do believe that as long as we're all respectful of each other and back up our ideas with basketball based evidence, discussion and debate is healthy. We can all agree we are passionate about this team, and it was shown by the stories that were posted. Kudos again, I am happy to be a part of this Internet Juke Joint.
After reading all the stories, 2 people officially entered for the tickets while others kindly just posted to tell their stories. Doof54 entered for his son, and Chris Faulkner entered as well. Both had great stories, and both had impressive examples of fandom.
After careful consideration, I have decided to give the tickets
for $300 dollars to...Doof83! Chris, thank you for the entry. I just thought it was really cool that Doof54 entered for his son, and the creation of a new GBBer in the process, Doof Jr., was too much to pass up. Plus, he mentioned December 29th as a game they went to together...I will be getting married December 28th of this year. Felt like fate. Welcome to the boards, Doof83, enjoy the game! I will get you the tickets. If your fiance can't make it because of work, please let me know and I will pass them along to Chris.
Thanks again to everyone!
