    Default My loss is your gain....

    Well this sucks beyond anything I can describe. Due to the impending killstorm 3000 that is approaching (it is already raining here) I am being put on emergency call standby tonight and will not be able to attend the game.

    It pains me to no end to not be able to cheer the new coach and team in person, you have no idea how bad.

    I could just bank these tickets and redeem them later but I would rather that someone supported the team tonight of all nights.

    So as I said my loss is your gain.

    In twenty five words or less tell me why Dale Davis is the greatest player to ever play the game.

    Ok, kidding just give me a good reason why you want to go to the game.

    Yes, you will be sitting about 4 seats behind Bird and depending on who is with Herb Simon or in his seats you will be sitting directly in front of David Morway and his family.

    So yes you have to be on your best behavior.

    BTW, these are two tickets and I would rather give them to two people going together. But I will split it up.

    Already got 2 seats in section 1, or else I would be all over this. I'd write you a 300 word essay on the greatness of DD. But alas, I don't need them tonight. Very cool of you to hook up some lucky fan though.

    I live in Tennessee. If I had a private jet, I'd take you up on your offer.

The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    Oh the joys of being an emergency responder. I feel for you buddy, going to be too many idiots with 4 wheel drive thinking they can drive through anything.

    Sadly including me, but I don't have a choice.

    You be careful as well. Hopefully you guys aren't working a lot of p.d.'s, I know the paperwork on that sucks sucks sucks.

    I would love to use 1 of the 2 tickets. I'd take both, but I'd need a sitter for my boy, and he's already (shamefully) made it plain that he's not ready to attend a full basketball game with his dad yet, so long story short, I'd be happy to take a ticket if you can't find someone to take both.

    Hi Peck. I'd like to be considered for receiving the tickets you can't use. My wife and I are 100% sure we're going to be attending the game because we live right across the street from the Fieldhouse. So, unless the ice freezes the doors shut, we'll be there. There's not really any great reason why we should be chosen (unless my wife being an elementary school teacher is good enough), but we're excited to get to witness the first game of the post-JOB era and appreciate your kindness in offering up these tickets to somebody.

    D squared was an absolute beast!!! He was our toughness, which is a hugely overlooked requirement of a contending team. Everybody in the league knew if they could get by Mark and Reggie, they stiil had to get by Dale. I really miss him and to that length, I hated to see Artest go nuts, because he was our "toughness" after Dale. I think Tyler can be that player, even if its just a fraction of Dale's.

    Is that schmoozing enough? LOL. I really meant all that stuff though. LOL.

    BTW - thanks for your public service, Peck.

    I would like these tickets so I can take my 4 year old son to this game, his first Pacers game ever. His birthday was last Sunday and we had a party and everything but this would top it off.

    I can never apply for these Tix Peck....much as I would love to. I still have my ISU Phys. Ed. t-shirt from when I was a Frosh there.....I'd give my right nut to get bird to autograph it.....I'll just have to find some other way to entice him and I don't want to get you kicked out of there.

    Next time you make it over to T-Haute we'll just have his brother's Mark and Eddie sign instead.
