You’ll want to hug Sixers rookie T.J. McConnell after hearing this story

Wednesday April 13th, 2016

Philadelphia bouncers apparently think playing in a Sixers game is worth less than attending one. 

Mike White of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a story about Sixers rookie T.J. McConnell and his father trying to go out after a recent game. They arrived at a spot near the arena and the guy at the door told McConnell it was $10 to get in, unless you had a ticket stub from the game. 

“He played,” said Tim McConnell, pointing at his son.

The worker still wanted $10.

“No, you don’t understand. He played in the game,” Tim McConnell tried to reason.

No matter. It was $10.

Oh no. No. T.J., no. You poor guy. Sam Hinkie can’t hurt you anymore.
