Welcome to Manti Te’0 meets the Stanley Cup playoffs.
This smells like in the end this site just wanted more followers on Twitter to me.
A guy named Bacon had a a great idea to allegedly put a listing on Craigslist with a ridiculous story on how to win Tickets to Game #1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. According to his story he just wanted a crazy reaction to his listing so he could post them as a story.
Unfortunately or it worked out perfectly, the real news (no not the National Inquirer from Men in Black) Deadspin picked up this crazy story of cage diving for 2 tickets that now Mr. Bacon (not Kevin) had his story go viral.
To save the day he went to StubHub (not Craigslist) bought 2 tickets and put a very simple contest together so that he could fulfill his contest. Here is a link to this strange story which contains the rules to the contest.
The rules are simple
1. Follow @baconsports- What a great way to get thousands of new followers on Twitter without the please RT us posts that most sites do.
2. Send a creative YouTube video- Seems easy right?
So it all smells like a Te’o hoax of a story to me to get attention and Twitter followers, but the real question is how bad do you want to go to Game #1 of the Finals and will you be sending Bacon a video?
FYI, the suggest articles to read after reading the Contest rules is a very strange collection!
