If you haven't bought your tickets for the Clippers vs. the Warriors on April 10th yet, what are you waiting for? In case you missed the announcement before, we're having Clips Nation Night at Staples Center that night, with a reception for all the Citizens of Clips Nation before the game. The details are below, but there are a few updates that I wanted to tell everyone.
First of all, as of a few minutes ago, there were still four spots left in the 'High Five Tunnel' (for the first 50 ticket purchasers). So if you want your chance to high five Mardy Collins and Bobby Brown, you need to buy your tickets now.
Even if you don't make it in the first 50, there's still going to be great stuff. The Clippers just informed me of the items they are going to make available for the raffle:
- Replica Blake Griffin jersey
- 2 sets of Courtside upgrades to the 4/10 game vs. Golden State
- Clippers t-shirt
- Clippers Jersey Bag
- Blake Griffin figurine
Courtside seats would be COOL!
So be sure to buy your tickets, and let's get as many people there as possible. Keep reading after the jump for all of the details.
Here's what you need to know.
First things first, buy your tickets. You can use this link to buy tickets online directly through Ticketmaster - use code 'clippers'. There are three price levels, all with pretty nice discounts of at least 50%:
- $35 for loge 100 ends (regularly $75),
- $34 for the 200 level (regularly $68), and
- $20 for the Upper Center (regularly $45).
I'll be up high in the 300s - ClipperZoe and ClipperMax like the bird's eye view for some reason. What's especially nice about doing this as a group purchase is that there are no fees. That's right - Ticketmaster doesn't get a thing, so that's pretty sweet.
For season ticket holders who want to attend, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your season ticket holder information in order to get access to the event. Your names will be placed on the list at the check-in table.
On April 10th, everything starts at 5:00 PM. Show up and check-in at Star Plaza and tell them that you're there for Clips Nation night.
We have a private reception room reserved prior to the game. There will be a cash bar, raffles for prizes, and of course a chance meet and chat with your fellow citizens of Clips Nation - face to face like real people. Ever wonder what a Zhiv looks like? How does the ClipperWidow put up with Steve? Does citizen KamanHomie have a multi-colored King Tut goatee as an homage to BSkinnz? Will the earth's rotatoinal access be affected if citizen jax and citizen John R are in the same room? There's only one way to find out.
In addition to meeting your fellow citizens, there will be an appearance by members of the Clipper Spirit before the game. I'm working on other special guests, and will keep you posted as I find out more. Unfortunately, former Clipper Spirit Taylor sends her regrets - she has other plans that night, but wishes she could be there.
Obviously, it only makes sense for the Clippers to do this for us if they can sell a lot of tickets, so let's try to get as many people there as possible. The more the merrier.
So go buy those tickets RIGHT NOW and we'll see you on April 10th at Clips Nation Night!
