Ski bums literally bumming it for bargains at SNIAGRAB Sports Authority Sale

If you've driven near Broadway and 10th Avenue this week, you've no doubt noticed the tent village that lines the perimeter of Sports Authority. Yes, the annual SNIAGRAB (that's "bargains" backward) sales event begins Saturday, and as you might have read earlier in the week on Latest Word, these people are dedicated. Photographer Johnny Molfetta caught up with some of the die-hards on Friday afternoon.
