This morning I received an email from a buddy saying that Paul Pierce (@paulpierce34) was now on Twitter and he was going to give away tickets to the first 5 fans to meet him at the player’s entrance of the Garden. The only catch was that you had to be wearing a Paul Pierce jersey, and you had to say the password, which was “Truth”.
aight on my way to arena b there at 430 with my jersey players entrance free tiket to game only got 5 left hurry up passcode is truth
At first I wasn’t going to go, as I figured I’d be standing there with a couple other saps while someone took a picture of us and posted it on Twitter with the caption “Look at these suckers”. Not the case.
When I arrived there was already a group of five fans, which quickly grew to about ten. Almost exactly on the dot at 4:30, a Range Rover with California plates and tinted windows pulled up. The window rolled down and Paul Pierced asked us what the password was. Everyone shouted “Truth” and he started dishing out tickets.
It got slightly chaotic as there was no real line to get a ticket. The crowd just closed in on the Truth and people started reaching out for tickets. Luckily, I was able to score a ticket and will be heading up to the Truth’s suite in about an hour.
So if you were wondering, yes, Paul Pierce is on Twitter.
