Man Auctions Off Daughter and Football Game Ticket on Craigslist
So a girl that enjoys going to football games, plus a free ticket to a game? Oh Internet you fooled me again…wait, this is real.
Gary Yates of Gainsville, Florida, a lifelong Tennessee Volunteers fan living in Denver, purchased four tickets to Saturday’s SEC tilt between the Vols and the Florida Gators. After his 27-year-old stepdaughter, Jessica Flanagan, had her date for the game bail on her, Yates was left with an extra $150 ticket on his hands.
Most in Yates’ situation would probably just try to resell the spare ticket to recover some cash — perhaps back on StubHub, where Yates originally purchased the seat. But Yates, an airline pilot, had a better idea: He’d give away the ticket for free on Gainsville Craigslist in exchange for a replacement date for Flanagan.
So late Monday night, the Craigslist ad was born:
1 Free ticket for the Tennessee-Florida Football game this Saturday (cost to me, $150) on the 40 for the right gentleman. You must be an attractive, professional, single well educated gentleman, with a good sense of humor, 25-33. You also must not be threatened by an attractive, professional, single well educated lady, (as she is). If you do not qualify, please pass this ad to a friend.
The fine print: I lied! (Sorry…not totally free). Your cost will be a modest dinner, drinks and delightful conversation with her before or after the game.
P.S. (Being a Tennessee Vols fan is not required but is highly desirable)
Only those that respond with pictures and resume will be considered! Be creative!
So guys, check out the Craigslist ad if you think you are interested. Honestly she is a pretty good looking girl who enjoys football. Hopefully she is not a crazy stage four clinger.
