Kickoff Weekend

Despite my inability to get in contact with the Utah Jazz, I'm going to roll the dice and start the tour out there. As I've previously mentioned, I want my friends to share this experience with me.

Its literally an airfare black-hole and despite searching over a month in advance, it will likely be my most expensive weekend trip.

So I decided that I would pay the way for ONE of my friends to go with me. The basis I would use to choose this individual would be the following:
