Anyone else here attend this event last night? I was invited after a snafu with my RSVP for the open house resulted in me missing that event a couple weeks ago. It was held in the Legends area of the Fieldhouse and I must say I was quite impressed. Now I'm not a big money guy but they really made me feel like one. And I ended up buying a mini package for the weekends because you know what? I really am excited about the future of this team for the first time in a long time.
While I do realize an event like this is designed to sell tickets and you aren't going to hear any negative talk, I really did enjoy listening to JOB speak and I felt like he was being straight forward and not trying to blow any smoke. I had a chance to personally meet him after he was done talking and he really seems like a personable, likable guy.
So you know what? I'm getting rid of the negative feelings I've had in recent years and I'm going give JOB and this team an honest chance in the coming season without any lingering bitterness coloring my viewpoint. Honest to god, last night was something I needed to really re-energize me as a Pacers fan.
Oh that and winning a pair of court side tickets for the home opener did not hurt.
