Jason Kidd surprises lifelong Cubs fan and longtime Bucks employee with World Series tickets
Bucks coach Jason Kidd surprised a longtime team employee and lifelong Cubs fan with tickets to the World Series.
Mike Sergo, who's been an equipment manager with the team for 20 years, was gifted tickets to Sunday’s Game 5 in Chicago. Milwaukee’s got a game that night, but Sergo will be allowed to miss the game for the World Series.
In an Instagram post, basketball database manager Daniel Marks called Sergo “the most selfless person I know, who would lend a hand to anyone.”
Mike Sergo is a coworker of mine with the @bucks and has been here 20 years. He is the most selfless person I know, who would lend a hand to anyone. He is also the biggest @cubs fan I know, and when they made the world series, he tried every contact he knew to try to get there. He couldn't find a ticket. Going to the world series at Wrigley Field would mean more to Mike than anything in this world (literally) so I offered to start up a collection to help Mike buy a ticket. A number of staff agreed to pitch in but then Coach Kidd said he'd take care of the ticket. Here is Mike finding out he'd be going to Wrigley Field for game 5. One of the coolest moments of my life.
His reaction to getting the tickets was priceless.
