Free tics to Boys State
We are running a fun little promotion leading up the the Boys State Basketball Tournament. Tell us in 50 words or less why you should get two free tickets to this years tournament at Ohio State University March 25, 26 and 27. A complete list of rules and regulations is available on our webpage for this. Check it out. Tickets are getting expensive and the seats won't be low on center court, but they're free if you win. We're hoping for some interesting submissions. We'll announce the winner Friday March 19th.
The State Tournament is a fun weekend, a ton of basketball and a great tradition for me. My first state tournament was 1982. Back then seats we're tougher to come by at St. John Arena. Not the case these days at the Schott, we're if you don't mind the "nose-bleeds", you can get in. That is great because more kids can go, and fans in general. Back at St. John, there weren't nearly as many kids because there simply wasn't the seats avaialble (over 6,000 less seats). That being said, there is nothing better than St. John Arena. For folks that never went to a state game there, or saw the Buckeyes in the old barn, you unfortunately missed out because todays newer huge multipurpose arenas don't come close.
