I am having a good day. I am taking the family to see Bee Movie which I am sure will suck, but it’s opening night/afternoon and I want an Icee.
Max has basketball practice and it’s also the opening home game for the Phoenix Suns. It has been a long summer without basketball here and although I am boycotting the league (over the Stoudemire toss) and cancelled my Sun’s season tickets (travel too much), I still will be going to games…for the kids :) .
BUT, I just realized I need some tickets…
To pull off tickets this year will require ultimate networking gamesmanship. Facebook is for weenies and posers when you need the real shit like Sun’s tickets.
That’s why while everyone is yacking about Facebook and now Google’s Open Social blah blah blah, you should remember that a friendly round of golf with some connected people is the way to get shit done.
Just so happens that I was golfing at Bandon Dunes with the head of Sun’s tickets. Random but relevant. Stay with me. He could give a rat’s ass about Facebook and Wallstrip and my personal blog and Techmeme. He does remember my sweet 74 that pocketed him $400 bucks (sorry Mike , not Acebucks).
Now get this…I picked up the phone AND CALLED HIM. Very 1990.
Guess who’s got 4 tickets in the second row….
PS – Note to nerds…golf is done outside. You talk to people. No linking or tagging.
