actually, 2 friends of mine started this company in the 80's, Tom Kartsotis and
Mike Barnes. they were ticket scalpers at the time. my scalper partner joined up
with them 3 years before going public. hes worth 20 million after a $50,000 buy
in. i could have bought into this deal for 5,000 and would be worth an estimated
5 million (i had the cash). i laughed at them, "plastic swatch rip-offs
buying for $4 and wholeselling for 17? good fucking luck!" i kick myself
every day over that.
