Back in December, we asked if anyone had, or witnessed a Wanna Get Away moment. You know, those awkward and humiliating moments when you'd rather be anywhere else? We then asked you to recreate the moments on video and you did! A panel of judges selected Brian Cates' "Out on a Limb" as the Grand Prize Winner out of approximately 140 entries. There were other winning videos as well as honorable mentions for you to check out at www.southwestwannagetaway.com But, starting today (April 24) through May 3, be on the lookout for our latest Wanna Get Away commercial by Brian Cates as you cheer for your favorite NBA playoff team!

I'll see the commercial during the lakers/suns game. I have a feeling that the lakers are going to pound the suns. It's obvious that kobe is way better than nash. Go Lakers!!!

Jeramy = Pure comedy. The Fakers MIGHT win a game, however, let me point out that they have ONE win against a team with a .500 record or better the WHOLE SEOND HALF OF THE SEASON. What that means is that they might get swept. If that happens, I'll leave a purple and orange broom by your desk. Jedi Blog Master

I want to get away, but your reservation system only allows me to book a flight less than 4 months in advance.

Paco, Your Phx (never won a championship) suns might be up 2-0 right now, but the series is far from over. I don't know what's worse, the suns fans cheering when Kobe hurt his ankle last night or the fact that they made a shirt with a picture of roger bell clotheslining Kobe in last year's playoffs. At least Laker players and fans have some class. NBA titles: Lakers 14 Suns 0

Jeramy, Who was the heavy favorite to win the title with Shaq and Kobe and only won one playoff game against the Pistons that year???? Yes, it rhymes with fakers. ;-P not negotiable Ding! boy Joe

Guilty Carnivore, The schedule will open tomorrow to book through November 2nd. That is over 6 months in advance. Some airlines book further out but their schedules usually change before you take the flight. Southwest very rarely if ever changes their schedule after they release it to the public. I don't know about you, but I would rather wait 1 or 2 extra months to book my flight to ensure that I am getting a sure thing. PS: Is Guilty Carnivore your REAL name?

Joe, Your pistons got lucky that year. The best team lost. (Just like the usc vs texas rosebowl championship game)

Jeramy, No, the best TEAM didn't lose. The lakers problem that year was their dependence on Shaq and Kobe. Once they were neutralized, it was easy for the pistons as a team to win. Now in high definition, Ding! Boy Joe

Paco, What happened to your beloved suns the other night? They had no answer for Kwame Brown. He was dunking on them as if he were a younger version of Shaq. I think we have a good chance to win the next 3 games and steal the series. Go Lakers!!! 8) -Trojan Blog Boy
