Most of us go through Monday-Friday with our heads down just trying to make it to the weekend. It’s a pretty ordinary cycle, and eventually we’ll all die. But, before you take a dive out your office window, let me assure you that there is hope for the extraordinary to happen in the sluggish cycle that is the rat race.

Take Amy and Mike Santora, for example. The married couple are longtime Pittsburgh Penguins fan, but with three daughters they rarely have the time and resources to catch a game, especially throw down on pricy Stanley Cup Finals tickets.

Well holy hell did they get lucky. According to CBS,  Amy received a text early Wednesday evening offering four free tickets to that night’s game. She returned the call. The man at the other end said he texted the wrong number. End of story.


“He called me back less than five minutes later and said he found Julianne [the person he initially intended to contact], but she was only taking one set of tickets, so I could have the other,” Amy says.

Mike walked in exhausted after a 14-hour work day when his wife informed him that they were just gifted $329 tickets on a fat-fingered blunder. And it only got better from there.

“There was no traffic on the way in to 28, which was unbelievable” Amy marvels. “This was at 7:38 p.m., by the way!”

Their lucky night continued. As they approached a jam packed parking lot, the attendant came running out and said, “A car just left. Come on in!”

Will call tickets gave them a seat just behind the goalie.

The Penguins beat the Predators 4-1 in Game One of the Stanley Cup Finals and I wish nothing but prosperity for the fine folks who gifted strangers the opportunity of a lifetime.
