Hey man, do you have $59 to blow, love basketball and would like to be around Dennis Rodman for 11 seconds while sitting in a bar? Yeah? That’s weird, but you are in luck because LivingSocial is offering a deal that is pretty much that exactly. Here are the details, just in case:
On the court, Dennis Rodman was one of the greatest defenders of all time, winning five championships and seven consecutive rebounding titles during an illustrious professional career. Off the court, he reigned supreme as one of the showiest athletes around. With this Adventure, you can get up close and personal with “The Worm” when you join him to watch Chicago take on Philly on December 1 at the West Loop’s new spot, Arrow on Ogden. Choose from two ticket packages:
$59 ($120 value) for one general admission ticket
- Opportunity to take a picture with Dennis Rodman
- Halftime Q&A
- Entry into the costume contest with prizes
- Raffle ticket for signed Dennis Rodman jersey
- Two drink tickets
- Free coat check and $10 valet available
$129 ($250 value) for one VIP ticket
- Everything included in the General admission package
- 16×20 photo signed by Dennis Rodman – an officially licensed NBA product by Photo File
- Open Bar Package
Can’t make it to the event? Pay $69 ($99 value) for one autographed 16×20 photo of Dennis Rodman.
At the very least, there are probably worse ways to spend your money. You could buy a pair of pants that don’t fit or an Edsel or a paintball gun when you are 15 that you use six times and then store in a Little Tikes sports locker for the next 13 years. Plus, if you’re going to be around Dennis Rodman in a bar during a snoozer like Bulls-76ers, odds are you might be getting in on the ground floor of some future Deadspin hijinks. There’s no way to promise anything, but alcohol + Dennis Rodman often = legendarily bad decisions. And you could be there! For just $59!
On the other hand, what’s probably going to happen is you pay your 59 bucks, get your picture with Dennis Rodman and then don’t get near him until the “Halftime Q&A” which will be super boring, then he’s off talking to chicks and you’re enjoying two drinks and free coat check. I know it’s nice to have someone else hang up your coat, but it’s not that big of a deal. Besides, if Dennis Rodman shows up in a wedding dress and you happened to wear white, that’s going to be super awkward.
