Went to see the Shock beat Indiana tonight ( Fri 6-16 ). Had close seats in row AA ( 1st row behind court seats ) but they were more in the corner so some of the view was abstructed whenever someone walked by or an employee stood. I thought of some Piston fan paying $800 for the same seat in the post-season. You are a part of things but will miss some of the game. Anyway it was entertaining and cheap as heck. Only $26/seat for those. It was very refreshing being there with only 5,000 or so other fans as compared to the usual hectic Piston game. No lines, no traffic. You could use the facilities and buy refreshments at the half with no waiting whatsoever. This must have been what it was like in the infancy of the NBA. Shock looked good and won by 12 or so points. Deanna Nolan is very fast. Ran the ball up the court in what seemed like 2 seconds, we could use someone like that on the Pistons. I also wish we could find the male equivalent of Cheryl Ford for the Piston frontline. She is an amazing post-player and lives in the paint, outstanding offensive rebounder and usually finishes her post moves. Katie Smith is the main shooter on the team. I don't know if it was just that game but I did not see Swin Cash as the main catalist on that team. She is good but I would place her behind Ford and Nolan. Not to sound like a sexiest but I was impressed on how much more attractive our players are than Indy's - if that means anything. Billups was there with the wife and fam. If its good enough for him then its good enough for you. You will at least not get stressed out in the slightest with any of the inconvinences of a typical sold out Piston game. They play 4 10 min quarters with abreviated timouts. The game was played in less than 2 hours.
