Dear Pounding the Rock community:
I'm a Spurs fan stranded in Eugene, Oregon. I'm a senior at the University of Oregon, getting set to graduate in June. Being that I'm stuck all the way out here in the Northwest, I've never seen the Spurs play on their home court.This saddens me, especially as the career of my favorite player (Timmy, if that wasn't obvious) begins to wane.
However, I've been "awarded" a 10-day business trip to Austin that I'm leaving for tomorrow. And as you all know, San Antonio is playing host to the Thunder for at least two games in the coming week or so. I want to go to one of those games. What's the best way for a broke college student to get into a Spurs game?
My plan is to get a train, bus or hitchhike to San Antonio from Austin. Once there, I'm not sure how to proceed. StubHub? Scalpers? Some other option that only the locals know about? As an almost-graduated student, I don't have an unlimited amount of money to spend ($100 would be pushing it). Nosebleeds are fine. Any advise would be appreciated.
Thanks, and GO SPURS!
