(I’m serious. Click the last link. You probably didn’t realize basketball could be written about like that.)
In a terrible move on my part, I assumed that this game would be like every other non-Redskins sporting event in DC, mainly that it wouldn’t possibly sell out too far in advance of the game. Well, surprise surprise, the Lakers do have a certain cache when they travel, and now the cheapest tickets on StubHub are going in the $150 area.
Extended update if I get time this afternoon, but definitely coming tomorrow before, after or maybe even during the Super Bowl, considering I couldn’t be less excited about it, especially after my quick run-through of the commercials didn’t inspire much hope. But still, Go Bears, and Wilbon and Kornheiser live-blogging the whole thing should be fun, right?
