Suns Fans Wait Hours For Josh Jackson But Instead Get Free Beer, Which Is Way Better

Suns Fans Wait Hours For Josh Jackson But Instead Get Free Beer, Which Is Way Better

Several dozen otherwise normal adult human beings waited for several hours in a Phoenix grocery store Wednesday night for an opportunity to meet and score an autograph from utterly unremarkable Suns second-year forward Josh Jackson. The deal, arranged through the team, had it that fans who showed up and bought a 12-pack of the event sponsora€™s beer would receive two tickets to the upcoming Suns home game against the dreary Pelicans, scheduled for Friday night.

Listen. Far be it from me to tell someone what to do with their evenings. Leta€™s just acknowledge, though, that a Friday night Pelicans-Suns game is extremely grim entertainment, and Josh Jackson is very butt, and hanging around a grocery store for one or both of those a€œprizesa€ is not the very best use of your time. Hilariously, there were four of these beer-for-tickets events, stretched between February 9 and February 27, and the Jackson meet-and-greet scheduled Wednesday night was apparently the grand finale. In fact, Suns fans could fast track their meeting with Jackson by attending all three of the earlier events. You hate to even imagine such a person walking among us.

But the truth is there are such people, and there they apparently were, lined up at a Frya€™s Food Stores location at 6:30 on Wednesday night, 12-packs in tow. Unfortunately for these poor, poor souls, Jackson apparently had something better to do, and blew off the event, stranding interim co-general manager James Jones with a crowd of angry Suns fans.
