    my stepdad is dying. cancer.

    he wants to see the Lakers. mom's favorite team is the Spurs. i talked about it on a forum. a complete stranger just sent me 4 VIP tickets to great seats. and a parking pass!! Laker versus the spurs.

    for every jackass on the internet using it for evil..there is one amazingly nice person willing to help others.
    my family is stunned. we are a cynical lot.

    That's sweet! If you are ever in Erie, PA, you can count on my for some courtside Erie Bayhawks NBA D-league seats!

    Prayers go out to stepdad, I hope I see a cure for cancer in my lifetime. My sister is graduating in May and plans to work in a cancer research lab.

    Have fun and enjoy the game and the family time, life is too short.
