A New England man has taken his buddies’ bet and is walking from Boston to NYC in exchange for Finals tickets to all the Celtics’ home games.
I want to say this is some serious dedication to the Celtics, but any real fan would do this right? For a chance at second row tickets to all Finals games, I’d probably suck a fart out of Khloe Kardashian’s rump: walking a couple hundred miles is nothing. (Seacoast Online)
It’s 10 p.m. Monday night, and Seacoast resident Tyler McGill is deciding whether to accept the most outrageous bet of his life.
Seated in a booth with friends at a local sushi restaurant, the 27-year-old has been offered a challenge by his old college pals to see one of the greatest sports rivalries in person.
The bet: Walk all the way from TD Garden in Boston to New York City within a week.
The payoff: Three tickets — worth thousands of dollars — on the parquet floor in the second row at midcourt for Games 3, 4 and, if necessary, 5.
“Basically, two of my buddies got three seats to all of the Celtics home games in the finals,” said McGill via cell phone on Wednesday. “All I had to do was ask, ‘What would it take to get me all of those tickets?”
“They said, ‘Walk from the Garden to New York City and we’ll get you to all the games.”[...]
Surviving on “mostly Charleston Chews,” energy drinks and water, McGill said he is also depending upon the hospitality of those he meets along the way.
“A nice school teacher offered me a place to stay for the night, but I’m nearly 139 miles away and decided to keep walking,” he said.
This really doesn’t sound that bad. Yeah, he has had to walk more than a marathon each day while walking through rain and whatever else the gods had to throw at him, but the man is eating only Charleston Chews. Give me Charleston Chews for every meal and I’ll walk through the Atlantic Ocean and all the way to Europe. (That is the way to Europe, right?) Charleston Chews are scrumptious bars of deliciousness that would fuel me no matter how far I walked.
So you be jealous that this guy will have tickets to all the Celtics home games in the Finals. I’m just jealous he gets to eat so many Charleston Chews.
