I've already got my comeback entry planned out.
Not seeing Sandman, Joey and Dionne in were a couple of my biggest disappointments. That said, I don't underrate the difficulty of choosing. I still hope to see you guys either as Area 55 buyins or in G2. You're all too loyal; too smart; and too loud not to see all the games in some form or fashion. Hope too that Area 55 and G2Zone people will be PTOing together. There's probably more bonding there than in the cheering sections. Maybe we can coordinate some things that way too.
Um, add Larry Judkins to the list of people I'll miss. Great fan and a good guy. Hope I haven't seen the last of him either.
I will try to persuade the wife to try out for G2. If enough official or unofficial Area55ers from past seasons get into that section, it will be easier to coordinate both what goes on during games and what may go on outside BLF (e.g., road trips).
I'm hoping my season ticket rep can work some magic to where I can at least be remotely close to you guys.
I was in town a few weeks back for Gen Con for the debut of a movie I'm in. While I was at the Tin Roof sitting outside having a drink, I saw a guy in a Hibbert jersey holding a box and two girls. I said I liked his shirt and he asked me if I knew anything about Roy Hibbert. I proceeded to tell him his senior year college stats, the details of the Toronto trade, Area 55 details, the monster game against the Heat, Parks and Rec, new contract details, All Star appearance, and anything else I could think of. He was impressed and interested, as he was going around filming videos of people to try out for Area 55, and the two girls he had with him were Pacemates.
Unfortunately, since I live in Los Angeles, I can't accept a spot in Area 55. He mentioned that it was too bad, thanked me for my enthusiasm, and headed off with the Pacemates. If there's ever an Area 55 away team for Los Angeles games, I'll be first in line.
Damn worked all summer saving up to buy back in this year. But my new job is from 11-830 no games for me gonna have to TiVo everything :cry:
I'm pretty sure someone hates me. Look what popped up literally two doors from my house....
Of course I would have an exam the night of the first Area55 party next week..
Someone is gonna have to update me with what happens there.
I'll post a recap. I will also eat your appetizers.
So what'd I miss Wednesday? Rocked that electromagnetis exam.
Also, has anyone tried to purchase an additional ticket and heard back with details? A second ticket would really make my trips down from W Lafayette much easier.
Edit: just found out I got an A on the exam!
They went over the rules (pretty basic stuff). They gave us a schedule of special events. Three times this season, Area 55 will get there early for a shootaround event. There was talk of Area 55 coming to the first Fever playoff game. Area 55 will be involved in a charity event later in the year.
There will be a photo shoot for Indianapolis magazine next Tuesday; gotta register with Rob.
We took a group photo in front of the BLF. Your appetizers were meatballs, chicken nachos, and beef with goat cheese. I ate them and they were delicious.
roy is doing bone marrow registry at Castleton right now come on out
THE MUSTARD HAS BEEN BROUGHT! JUST GOT THE CALL FROM PAUL GEORGE!
