Craigslist Ad of the Day: Calling Cleveland Groupies Dancers for an NBA Party




The NBA lockout is over, and that means arena employees, bartenders, scalpers, and fans are all happy. So too is the talent that keep the players entertained. The league is again open for business.

For example, somebody is throwing a soiree in downtown Cleveland to welcome back the NBA, and no party populated by NBA, NFL, and MLB players is complete without "dancers." Hence this Craigslist post calling for women who want to earn $200 and a shot at the open bar in exchange for dancing and flirting with athletes. The last line is perhaps the best part of the whole ad.
