Due to my employer's largesse (or just plain dumb luck), I have four extra lower level tickets to Saturday night's home game against the Grizzlies. No, I am not looking to sell these tickets. Instead, I am looking to pay it forward to my fellow diehard Timberwolves fans here on Canis Hoopus. "The catch," if you could call it that, is below the fold.
To make a long story short, I am a young-ish litigation attorney at a Minneapolis law firm (gasp!) that has come to the realization that with eligibility for partnership looming in the near future, it might not be a bad idea to try some alternative ways to meet (not "network" with) potential clients. I am loathe to use the word "network," because in my experience "networking" is synonymous with someone pretending to have some genuine interest in you in the hopes of ultimately selling you something. My goal is the opposite -- I would much rather meet people who have interests similar to my own; if that should lead to a business relationship somewhere down the line, then that is simply icing on the cake. If it doesn't, then no big deal. In fact, it's not even a deal at all, let alone a big one.
All of this is a long way of saying this: I have four free lower level tickets to give away to my fellow Hoopus faithful. If you can make use of them, and don't have some preconceived notion that all lawyers are phony, duplicitious, arrogant, conceited, stuffy, boring, dull, or any other negative adjective of your choosing, then I'm happy to give them to you. Hell, even if you dislike all lawyers, you can still have the tickets for free, as I'd much rather give them to people that would enjoy going to the game.
That is all.
