Since Thursday, LAist has been covering the wild adventures of a young woman named Sarah from Brentwood who has been having the strangest Super Bowl adventures.

As a transplanted Bears fan, originally from Mr. T's home of Lake Forest, IL, Sarah got caught up in the Super Bowl hype and threw herself on eBay in hopes of finding a generous benefactor to pay her money and give her a ticket.

She claimed to have an airplane ticket and a hotel room booked, all she needed was a ticket to the big game. But then eBay took down her auction after it got national attention.

Word of the chaos made its way to Axe Body Spray, who gave Sarah four tickets in the lower section near the end zone (where the Bears will be spending a lot of time celebrating, no doubt). Apparently Sarah has two really close girlfriends who are going with her (photo after the jump) and since they have a fourth ticket, Axe decided to turn the tables and pay Sarah to hold a nationwide contest to see who would get to accompany the hottie from the wesssside and her pallies.

We at LAist believe that yours truly should go, because I would bring the Bears substantial good luck (which apparently they need) -- I have attended two Bears games this year and they won both of them. However, hundreds of other men seem to think that they are more worthy.

None of them, though, scored this exclusive interview with the local girl with the extra golden ticket...

LAist: Why were the eBay auctions pulled down? Did you or eBay take them down?

Sarah: The first one was taken down because you can't sell intangible objects (like yourself!!) and the bids got ruined by people bidding absurd amounts like 999 million dollars. The second time I think they knew I was still using it to get tickets as opposed to actually selling my Bears costume cheerleading pom-poms. I don't think they're really allowed to arbitrarily take stuff off like that but by that point I already have my tickets so I didn't mind!!!

What a great turn of events, from going from someone needing a ticket to someone giving away a ticket -- did Axe just have four tickets they didn't know what to do with?

I know, I honestly can't believe this crazy little plan turned into such a big deal. I love that I get to watch guys try to pitch themselves to me the same way I pitched myself on EBay. There are definitely a lot of guys putting their tails between their legs and admitting I had a good idea, I'm not a trashy attention whore. Axe actually called me up with the idea and then bought 4 tickets from an online broker. Lower level end zone seats!
