New Jersey Devils Fan Wins Season Tickets With One Seven Word Tweet


This weekend, I’m going to hunker down and update my resume tweet at every sports organization and food chain and try to get free shit for a year. If the chicken nugget nerd can get free yearly nugs from Wendy’s, I sure as hell can dick pills from Viagra (I’m doing this for US, babe).

A New Jersey Devils fan named Nick Donnelly figured he’d shoot his shot with his favorite team by asking them how many retweets he’ll need for the organization to gift him season tickets.


The team then threw some math his way to decipher the number of retweets the teen will need.

Via News 12 New Jersey:

The number of years the team has been in New Jersey (35) multiplied by the combined numbers of the team’s five retired players’ numbers (4+3+27+30+26) and multiply that by the number of Stanley Cups the Devils have one (3) equals 9,450 retweets.

Mix in a touch of publicity with some help from the team’s stars…

And WAH-LAH! Within 8 hours, Nick reached the milestone.

Pretty good pull for a teenager considering that according to the Devils’ website, the most expensive tier of season tickets go for $15,500 and the nosebleeds go for $1,238.

In 20 years, Nick is still going to be sitting in the seats gifted to him by the Devils and some blue collared dude whose been breaking his back to afford tickets for years is going to ask him how he got his. When Nick replies, ‘A tweet,’ the dude is probably going to murder him right then and there.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
