Went to my first game of the season last night. I'm thinking I may not go the rest of the season! Don't get me wrong, the whole experience is great, but if I want to get frustrated watching these guys, I want to do it in the comfort of my own house!
Notes and Quotes from section 105:
- Food and drink (non-alcoholic) weren't as sky high as I'd expect. Nachos and Soda (unlimited refills) = $16.
- Team gear is another way overpriced!
- Barea looks as big as me.
- Overheard at the concession stand: "we should trade Mo and Foye for Beasley!"
- An usher actually asked Kiki to stand somewhere else while waiting to do a game update.
- DTS has the oddest smirk the whole game
- Blue Line from LBC is worth it especially going to LA.
- No Kiss Cam!?
- Clakers (Clips-Lakers) fans count: 3
