Three things about Jason

(Two are true, One is not. Which one is NOT true?)

A - I went to the Iowa Big Ten Championship game and accidentally bought fake tickets but was able to get in and watch the game with those tickets.

B - Once dropped my phone through the hole in the ice while ice fishing and could see the phone ringing on the bottom of the lake and was able to retrieve the phone in working condition.

C - I can shoot a gun accurately with my right and left hand.
