If you follow this site, you probably know that we’ve given away a ton of tickets to Wizards games this season (courtesy of StubHub) — I think 12 total tickets to the Miami Heat game on Dec. 18, four suite tickets to the LA Lakers game on Dec. 14, and a couple other random game giveaways, such as the Dec. 29 Pacers game, etc.
Perhaps you can call me a shill for StubHub for giving away these tickets … not entirely accurate. I get nothing from it, other than the satisfaction of sending good, honest Wizards fans to games for enjoyment (while yes, StubHub gets free advertising/marketing). Yes, there is a separate advertisement for StubHub on this site, but that comes as part of the arrangement with being the Washington Wizards affiliate in the ESPN TrueHoop Network. Not that any of this really needed clearing up, just felt it was appropriate … and such a disclaimer isn’t my point.
Why I am writing this post is to announce yet another free ticket giveaway. At 10 am EST tomorrow, Tuesday January 11, I will post a Wizards-related trivia question to the @Truth_About_It Twitter account. The first person to email the correct answer to firstname.lastname@example.org will win two lower-level tickets to see John Wall and his Wizards crew take on Wall’s college teammate at Kentucky, DeMarcus Cousins, and the Sacramento Kings Tuesday night at the Verizon Center (7 pm start time). Pretty simple … Remember: 10 AM EST tomorrow, Wizards Twitter Trivia.
But speaking of tickets we’ve previously given away, Jacob Holtz was one of two winners who received free Wizards-Heat tickets back in 2010 for submitting one of the best answers to a couple questions that I had asked. A couple days after that December 18 game, Jacob wrote to say thanks and to describe his general experience. With Jacob’s permission, I am now posting what he wrote below: Read more »
[Gilbert Arenas takes a bow after his 60 point game vs. the LA Lakers on December 17, 2006.]
Twenty-two down with game 23 coming tonight in D.C. against jersey No. 24 and his LA Lakers. 60 games to go on the season for the Wizards? Seems like a lot … until it isn’t. What also seems like a lot is the fact that a Los Angeles purple and gold team will be gunning to avenge the moral victory Washington recently achieved on their court … while gaining an Andrew Bynum back against a Wizards team likely to be without Andray Blatche, perhaps without John Wall, and with Gilbert Arenas “generally sore” … whatever that means.
So do you want to see the Wizards take on the Lakers tonight for free anyway? Sure you do. Because guys like Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin, a duo who helped fuel Washington’s valiant attempts in LA, are expected to see their fair share of time on the court with the swollen knee of 7-Course-Meal-Dray expected to keep him inactive. The Nick Young-Kobe Bryant Show Part II could be fun to watch as well.
Hence, TAI is giving away more free tickets courtesy of StubHub … this time, three tickets to an upper level suite (I know, three tickets is an odd number, but three is also company.)

[Gilbert Arenas had a breakout performance in Chicago on Saturday, dropping 30 points in just under 32 minutes (aided by 7-10 from deep). Will he do something similar at home against the Raptors tomorrow? You could be there to find out ... keep reading.]
Okay, so John Wall is currently day-to-day with a left foot sprain. Andray Blatche? His knee is a bit swollen and he’s also day-to-day. Add Yi Jianlian (bone bruise/hyperextended knee) to the list of walking wounded too.
