As annoyed as Denver Broncos fan Brian Lusk must have been after his friend's prank, even he had to give his buddy credit for coming up with the perfect idea to get a little revenge.
Lusk and his friend were on opposite sides of the Broncos-Steelers playoff showdown a few weeks ago. When Denver pulled out the 23-16 victory, Lusk got bragging rights over his pal, a Steelers fan.
Apparently, he had a bit too much fun gloating.
To get back at his friend, the Pittsburgh fan listed Lusk's three-bedroom, two-bathroom home for sale—claiming a divorce was the reason for selling—in several Denver-area publications. The asking price? A pair of Super Bowl 50 tickets, airfare and lodging.
Even for the most diehard Broncos fan, that would be a crazy deal. As expensive as Super Bowl tickets may be, they aren't even close to the value of a house.
In other words, it was a perfect prank.
Lusk's phone was flooded with calls from people hoping to get a steal of a deal. According to Steve Staeger of KUSA, one person offered a pair of tickets near midfield about 20 rows back, first-class plane tickets and a hotel suite.
Some Broncos fans might briefly consider that deal, but Lusk isn't looking to sell a house that he moved into less than a year ago—because he is happily married.
A prank like this won't be easy to top. The Steelers fan deserves a lot of credit for coming up with the idea, but now, he shouldn't expect any mercy from Lusk when he eventually seeks vengeance.
