    Just put yellow shirts on all the seats.

    It'll look cool with it being a sellout.

The crowd was so loud, no one in the building heard the buzzer."

    Larry Bird reportedly said afterwards about the Indiana noise: "If our fans were half as loud as Indiana's we'd never lose a playoff game."
    I was at that game vs. Celtics in 1991 as well. I remember that pull up fast break 3 by Person. I also remember players from both teams saying that it was the loudest crowd they had ever heard. The crowd seemed to will the Pacers to victory that night. It was like you were really part of the team on the floor. My most special playoff memory ever in person.

    That was the play that made me a Pacer fan.

    I have been to Conseco very early a few times this season and have seen Lance bringing doughnuts back for the team to eat while watching film. I think it is the rookie doughnut rule, but I have never seen Paul George bringing back the doughnuts. So maybe it is the "doh-head" doughnut rule?
    Paul George is in charge of getting newspapers and bagels, and Lance gets doughnuts I believe.

    Just because you want and like noise doesn't mean you're saying that every second should be filled by it.

    Are the towels going to be a limited number, or will they have enough for everybody? Or will it only be for people in certain sections? Just wondering since I've never been to an event where they give away shirts/towels/whatever, trying to decide if I should skip playing basketball this afternoon so I can make it to the game a bit earlier. These rally towels are a big deal.

    Basically, it involves a down-payment and a secret handshake. But I've already said too much...

    The Mrs. and I will bring our towels from the 1989 and the 90 playoffs for good karma.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    I was wondering what happened to the towels. Instead I got a cardboard sign I didn't even bother to take home with me.

    Too bad I can't make it tomorrow.
