    I might be out for this one if I can't find someone to switch shifts with me. Since the date was switched from the 15th I couldn't get my request off date changed in time, and I'm currently scheduled to work.

    There's a decent chance I may be able to make it now, though I'd be a little late.

    I sent out some PMs to some of the posters that have viewed this thread.

    I'm hoping that we can add a few more names to our list.

    I'm sure Shade knows this but I want to mention it for those newer posters.

    There is no such thing as being "late" to a forum party. Some arrive sooner than others & some leave before others. I'm hoping to stick it out for the entire Perkins portion of the party this time.

    If you do I'm afraid you might look like your avatar by the time we leave.

    Well, I'd be "late" by my standards.

    I don't know yet if I'll be able to make it through the Perkins portion or not. It looks like I may have to pull a double on Sunday.

    Are we even sure they'll let us back in Perkins after what took place last time? I just hope they let us have the side room so we can shut the door so the rest of the place doesn't have to endure another SPEEDBAG-esque discussion.

    Well, my party will actually be over by then, but it's downtown and I've committed to going out with my family - dinner, lights, shopping, etc. afterwards.

    Theoretically, there is a chance I'll make Perkins. Realistically, I don't know.

    I'll be there, but I have a bad cold that is going into my chest and I'm starting to lose my voice. Of course staying up til 1:00 to watch the pacers and then getting up for work at 6:00 probably isn't helping my situation.

    Guys to my regret I can't make it to this party. I miscalculated my arrival in Indianapolis, I'm still in Chicago on Saturday and will come to Indianapolis on Sunday to meet some relatives of mine.

    I feel bad because I really wanted to attend but maybe another time.

    I have tickets (section 17, row 16, seats 17-18) for the home game against the Suns next Tuesday, maybe I'll meet some of you then. Looking forward to that for sure.

    Have a good time this Saturday!

    Well, sadly I am now out.

    Due to me missing my Wife's family Thanksgiving last weekend with a bout of the flu, they have suprised me with a new plan for (you guessed it) Saturday.

    My Nephews will be spending the night as well so I won't even be able to sneak away for the Perkins part.

    I hereby nominate Roaming Gnome to act as the M.C. for the event and I give my proxy statements to Hicks. (it is now your job to argue with Uncle Buck all night long)

    I know that Gnome is loud enough to handle crowd control and he will also eat my share of the pinapple and peperonni pizza.

    Enjoy people and I will submit questions in U.B.'s thread for you all to discuss.

    My mood reflects why I bugged out of the Perkins portion of the evening. I'm assuming someone poisoned my portion of the pizza. Way to pick on the Bulls' fan.

    I'm not sure who will offer a detailed review of the evening. Gnome and Hicks did a good job of subbing for Peck.

    Thanks to Jose for arranging the evening. I will say that attendance at these gatherings seem to have some correlation to the amount of people who attend Pacer games in person.

    If I had a good memory I'd gladly recap, but since I don't I'll throw out the first thing that jumped back to my mind this morning:

    We've solved Jermaine O'Neal and Travis Best.

    They have the basketball IQ equivalent to the basic IQ of a 3 month old baby.

    You see, if you have ever had a psychology class in High School or in College, you've more than likely seen at one time or another a video where a young baby is sat down looking at a track that, in the middle, is blocked by a curtain or a wall.

    First the psychologists send something out on the track, which the baby sees and follows.

    But when the object reaches a point where the baby can't see it, they stop the object. The baby doesn't look ahead in anticipation of the object coming out from the other side of the curtain because in his/her mind, this object no longer exists because baby can't see it.

    This brings us to JO and Best. We figure, they have the same problem with the basketball part of their brains. When their mean run around picks and screens, or get concealed by the other team, they no longer believe their team mate exists. Pretty soon, they're left playing 1 on 5 in their minds and have no choice to but shoot over 3+ defenders in the post (JO) or launch a jump shot (Best).

    It just made too much sense not to share.

    I snagged two little audio clips and a half-dozen pictures of the evening.

    We'll start with the audio (which is one file with both clips in it) in which both involve some memorable quotes by Unclebuck.

    The first is straight from the get-go. The second was recorded after the quote was initially said. While UB hesitates to restate it on tape, you'll hear shortly how he caves and signs on to the idea anyway.

    http://www.pacersdigest.com/apache2-...lips120107.mp3

    Next we have some pictures. I only got 1 round-table shot of everyone (at the time; Shade and BoomBaby33 came later) and then singles of Shade (eating!) and BB33.

    Grace & Kegboy


    Unclebuck & BillS


    Pizza Guy & Family


    Roaming Gnome & Jose Slaughter


    While traveling to Perkins, some Hoosiers were disturbed to see us in Pacers gear


    Shade ate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    A new arrival we certainly hope to see come back from now on, BoomBaby33 (apologies for the blurriness)

    Thanks Jose and Mal for setting up the "party". I'm glad and honored I got to meet everyone. Wish I could have met more of the "fans" from our board. Even though it was very late in the evening when I arrived. I had a very busy day. Its great to be able to have a place to voice your opinion and views of the Pacers, whether anyone agrees with you or not. And just talk about the team we all love.

    I look forward to the next one, and for those of you who haven't ever come to one, I fully endorse it. Its easy to make new friends and fun conversation - Pacers based or not.

    I even got a recap from the speedbag conversation from the last party, and it was completely hillarious. All you need is the visual.

    Thanks again guys!

    Sure he ate. I bet that when the waitress cleaned the table she found the food wadded up in the napkin.





    While UB's quotes were earth shattering the biggest news from the discussion is that some have decided who the next Pacer will be.....







    ....wait for it......
