Annual Furman Basketball Game

Each year our friend Mike gives us tickets to one of the Furman Basketball games on the campus of the university. I think this is our third or fourth time attending. We went yesterday. Mike has season tickets, but does not attend every game. They are excellent tickets, right at mid court, about 20 rows back. This gives us an excellent view of the whole court.

The way Furman does a game is by offering unlimited hamburgers, hot dogs, potato chips, nachos, popcorn, pizza, and sodas–as long as supplies last. My children are not really interested in basketball because they don’t understand it and have never asked to learn. They do like unlimited food supplies though and our annual Furman trip is just perfect for them.

Furman lost to Samford 63 to 52.

The kids had a better score. Here’s their list. Haydn was the winner, though no one was competing or complaining.

Haydn
1 hotdog
3 ice creams
2 nachos
2 popcorn bags
2 sodas
1 cheeseburger
1 BBQ chip
Ansa
2 sodas
1 ice cream
1 nacho
1 popcorn
1 cheeseburger
1 BBQ chip
Tristen
2 ice creams
1 hotdog
1 regular chip
1 popcorn
2 sodas
1 cheeseburger
Let’s say each item would have cost $1.50 per. 27 x $1.50 = $40.50
Thank you, Mike, for the tickets.
