My friends and I scored free tickets to see our favorite baseball team in the playoffs.
The radio station was having a contest and I was calling every single day to win.
It took a week, but I finally got through to the DJ on the 5th day. I received four tickets to the playoff game which was scheduled for several days later. When I told my friends about the ticket, they were really excited. Dave offered to drive us to the game. He has a big truck that can seat 6 people. It doesn’t get great gas mileage, but it is very comfortable and luxurious. The truck even has a sunroof. I was happy that they’ve offered to drive, because my car is small and compact. We would not have been very comfortable taking the trip in my small Chevy. On the day of our game, we left town several hours early. We planned to stop for lunch and we planned to get a hotel room before the game. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for either one of these activities. On our way to the game, the AC in Dave’s truck stopped working. Dave had the AC on high, but we couldn’t feel much cold air. The fan wasn’t blowing very hard and the truck was starting to get hot. We had to pull over in a rest stop to check the truck. Luckily, Dave is an expert mechanic. Dave couldn’t fix the AC problem, but he did bypass the system so the truck wouldn’t continue to heat up. We managed to make it to the game, but most of the trip was entirely too warm.
