Gooden tells fans to put Bulls jerseys in toilet
by Michael Katz, USA TODAY Sports
The Bucks are playing the Bulls on Monday night, and Milwaukee forward Drew Gooden had a really good idea. It involved Chicago jerseys, and toilets and … well, I’ll let him explain.
@DrewGooden: First person that can twit pic me a Chicago Bulls jersey in the toilet will get my tickets for tonight’s game
Of course! So the gauntlet had been set, but would anyone answer the call? Again, this is the Internet so the answer is of course.
Now we’re here, together, looking at three fans who just put Bulls jerseys in the toilet for a chance at free tickets to an NBA basketball game. Here we go!
1. This guy!
2. This guy!
3. This guy!
Considering tickets are available on StubHub for as little as $4.50 for the game, this feels like a bit much. But it was never about the money, was it? It was about being a loyal fan, connecting with your favorite athletes … and the opportunity to stick a jersey in the toilet.
This is what it means to be a sports fan in 2012.
