When I got the mail today, I noticed a packet from the Pacers. When I opened it, it was a sheet of peel off magnets. You know the kind where it is a sheet and the items are perferated on the sheet for you to peel off. Well anywho, the sheet had action shots of:
Mike Dunleavy Jr.
along with the "Pacers Blue & Gold Elite" logo and a placard with "Coach O'Brien Wants You To Renew"
I guess it came to my wifes immediate attention that J.O. was not in this advertisement for renewals, and they are starting to use the players again. I do understand why they didn't use Tinsley (eventhough he is a starter), Daniels, or Harrison, but I thought that J.O. was pretty clean on and off the court as far as public perception. Are we really going to move in a different direction?
Also today, I received this e-mail from the Pacers:
Dear season-ticket holder,
As a season-ticket holder with the Indiana Pacers, your opinion is important to the team. And this Friday, March 21st, the Pacers want to hear your opinion.
The Pacers would like to invite you to spend some time at Conseco Fieldhouse to talk about your experiences at Pacers games, your opinions about the future of the Pacers, and suggestions you have for the organization.
Simply put, Pacers’ management wants to know what you think of the “Pacers Experience,” and how you think it can be improved. The team is very interested in what you have to say, and we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to let the Pacers’ management hear your voice.
And as a way to express our appreciation for your participation and willingness to offer your opinion, if you attend the meeting on the 21st, the Pacers will give you a 100 dollar gift certificate to St. Elmo’s Steakhouse. The Pacers are committed to ensuring an economically vibrant Indianapolis, and this is a small way we can help.
The gathering will be on March 21st from 3:30 to 5:00pm or 5:15 to 7:00pm at Conseco Fieldhouse. Due to very limited space, you will have to fill out a short application. We will then let you know if you were accepted to participate. Once we hear back from you we will confirm your attendance with parking information.
We look forward to hosting you on the 21st, and we’re excited to hear your opinions!
