A typical Craigslist ad offering free football tickets for this Saturday's Tennessee-Florida Football game comes with a slightly atypical catch: Interested parties must be willing to take the original ticket holder's stepdaughter out on a date.
"My step-daughter's date backed out," writes the anonymous Gainesville, Florida, stepdad. "His loss, your gain."
Indeed, according to dad, his stepdaughter is "an attractive, professional, single well educated lady" — not one of those Missed Connection floozies you holler at from your car.
Therefore, respondents must be "attractive, professional, single well educated gentleman, with a good sense of humor," and between the ages of 25 and 33.
Being a Tennessee Volunteers fan "is not required but is highly desirable."
Caveat emptor: The tickets are cheap, but this man's stepdaughter is not. "Your cost will be a modest dinner, drinks and delightful conversation with her before or after the game," he notes.
If you're thinking of throwing your Vols cap in the ring, you should know that "due to the overwhelming response," there is now a deadline on entry — midnight tonight.
A winner will be notified by 10 a.m. EDT Thursday. Thanks to all the respondents, and good luck!
Yeah, she's gonna need it.
