So last Monday night, he found $160 tickets on Craigslist 45 minutes before tip-off and snatched 'em up for $30 (oh, he does make this wife proud...).
Noah, to the ticket seller, upon sealing the deal:
"Nah- it's not even really the game we're going for. You see, there are these dancing grannies..."
As half-time inched closer and our Utah pride started to swell, we got the no-good, very-bad news. Jean's Golden Girls were the pre-game show. Half-time was the Red Panda Acrobat.
What's that? The Red Panda Acrobat can kick 8 bowls off her shin and catch them on her head while she rides a 30-foot unicycle? Pretty cool, I guess.
And fortunately, the dance-cam caught the groovin' grannies' 93-year old star in the tunnel for her signature high-kick and splits. Plus, Noah caught a t-shirt. So the evening wasn't a total bust.
