Star-studded sports dreams can come true
By DJ Gallo
Thuzio offers all sorts of "unforgettable experiences" with athletes.
The holidays are only a month away or, based on TV commercials and store displays, tomorrow. (Quick! Buy everything you see!)
What to give the sports fan on your list? He or she probably already has every jersey, hat, T-shirt, beach towel, refrigerator magnet, poster, DVD and licensed perfume of their favorite team. It’s time for something new. It’s time to get them an actual athlete.
That’s where Thuzio.com comes in. The folks at Thuzio allow you to book athletes for lunch, dinner, birthday parties, golf outings -- really anything.
• Have a friend or loved one who has always wanted to play a round of golf with former NBA center Tree Rollins? If they live in the Orlando/Tampa area, and if you have $750, that dream can become a reality.
• And if you’re a really big roller, you can plunk down $7,500 to get Isiah Thomas to appear at your event or “your store opening, bank, gym, car dealership, etc.” Just make sure you get the details on the “etc.” part to make sure it doesn’t include Thomas managing your business in any way.
And if none of this is quite what you’re looking for, the folks at Thuzio consider custom requests: “Tell us what you're looking for and we will try and make it happen!”
