With playoff hopes dead, Nets dump tickets at schools

With the New Jersey Nets' playoffs hopes dead, how are they going to fill seats at the Izod Center? Give them away.

From a message forwarded to me, from a parents' mailing list at PS 139, an elementary school in Ditmas Park:
PS 139 has been awarded free tickets to see the NJ Nets play the Bobcats at the Izod Center in NJ. The tickets arrived unexpectedly at the school today and the game is Monday April 13 at 7:30 pm! So if you would like to attend this game you can pick up your tickets from me.... Please reply to me and let me know how many tickets you would like (limit of 8 per family) and when you can pick up on Thurs or Fri. We have 96 tickets to give away...

Let's say they contacted 100 schools: should all the tickets actually be used, that would fill about half the arena.
