    Maybe our old buddy sandman21 will make a map to post on here of the PTO location.

    You guys can start as early as you like, I was thinking some of you would be out there by 3 or 4. I will be there as soon as I can..hopefully 5ish. Mabye we should use the larger lot on the SE corner of the intersection, but not so far back as we were for the playoffs last year in the same lot. The smaller lot has been full well before tip before, and we will have plenty of room. We might need to keep in mind of the weather. I don't mind standing out in the rain, it's PTO, we've braved rain, ice, sleet, snow ,below 0 wind chills, and hobos, but if body wants to bring an canopy, that would be awesome. It's gonna be a great run. It's a new season.

    This sounds like a great idea. I'm staying at the Sheraton I believe so hopefully that isn't too far away.

    Thanks for pointing out your other possible location. Should be interesting to see if the lot prices are jacked up for the Playoffs.

    AREA 55 NEWS YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK!!!!

    Greetings, Area55ers!!!

    It’s Playoff Time!!!! This is the culmination of everything the Pacers have worked for this whole weird and disjointed season. The bottom line is this: we have to beat Orlando!

    Unlike a lot of people, I guess, I don’t see our First Round opponent as a “gimme”. There are several reasons to take them very, very seriously.

    First, Dwight Howard is gone. The fact that he won’t be playing against us during our series with Orlando eliminates a few strategic problems for us. But not all of them. It means Orlando’s starting center is likely to be Glen “Big Baby” Davis. True, Glen’s no Dwight Howard. He’s got a lot of mental issues and he’s certainly not the sharpest knife in Orlando’s drawer. But he’s still a formidable force to be reckoned with underneath. Orlando can still run a lot of their normal offensive stuff through Big Baby. And with that Big Baby Butt of his and all his weight, he’s hard to move around and difficult to rebound against.

    Second, there is no pressure whatsoever on Orlando. Nobody expects them to beat the Pacers without Dwight Howard. The Magic can relax and shoot their 3s like they always do, without any expectation monkeys on their collective backs. All the pressure will be on the Pacers. If the Pacers dispatch Orlando, all the pundits will just shrug their shoulders and then go on talking about Chicago, L.A. and Miami – as always. If Orlando causes us problems, it’ll be plastered all over ESPN.

    Third, Orlando’s coach, Stan Van Gundy, while being a porn-star lookalike, is nevertheless a very good NBA coach. He’ll have the Magic as ready as any team like them could be.

    Fourth, we haven’t faced this Orlando team. We’ve always played them with their big trump card – Dwight Howard – in the post. Their old game plan required us to either (1) double Howard and then watch the rest of the Magic rain in 3s on us, or, alternatively, (2) play him straight up without help, and then watch him destroy us from 6 feet away from the hoop or closer. Without Dwight, Orlando will be quicker, rangier, and will be running their 3 point guys off pick after pick after pick. The Pacers defense will have to cope.

    We play at home tonight. This is an edge that the Pacers worked hard and all season to obtain. Area 55 is supposed to be part of that edge. We can’t squander it. No farting around tonight, 55ers. This is the Playoffs! We have to be as loud as possible tonight. We have to do everything in our power to get the rest of the BLF crowd into it too.

    Ticket Pickup: By now you should have gotten an email from the Suits explaining how, when, and where you get your tickets for tonight’s game. In case you didn’t, here’s another reminder:

    How do you get your tickets? Tomorrow at 6pm, you can show up to the Area 55 Table (not Will Call) in the Indiana University Health Entry Pavilion of Bankers Life Fieldhouse and pick them up. Make sure you have photo ID. Once you get your ticket, you have to get it scanned and then enter the arena. This will be the process for every home game during the 2012 Playoffs.

    PTO: The PTO tonight starts at 4:00 in the Big Lot (not our normal venue) located across the street from Arby’s on the south east corner of South Street and Pennsylvania. Be there! It’s a good time and a good place to have a beer or two pre-game.

    That’s it! Get psyched! Be loud! We really, really have to bring it tonight, 55ers!

    GO PACERS! GO AREA 55!

    The PTO will be in the big lot today. I am sure that the parking prices will be higher than normal.
    Sounds like we are in for a fun day!

    40% chance of rain, 55°. I don't see any significant precipitation on the radar, let alone any. PTO should be fine.

    So my wife Amy will not be attending the game tonight. She woke up real sore today, and decided to go to the doctor to be safe because she had gallbladder surgery this past Thursday.

    The doctor informed her, that she had:
    An ear infection
    A full body infection
    Strep Throat

    Shes very upset and only hopes she can make it Monday. She asks that the rest of Area55 picks up her slack in her absence.

    Awesome!

    I just bought some blue shoes. I'm disappointed that the mall here has hardly any Pacer apparel. A guy in Finish Line said they needed to make the finals for them to carry anything. I looked at him at said 3rd seed isn't that enough? He didn't have a comeback.

    I saw Alan twice the past couple days out with his family sporting a Canton Basketball shirt.


    In other news, why were we (not me) booing the refs as they walked out tonight?

    No more facepaint here, and I'm moving back to parking in the other lot again. Gotta go with what has worked all year. Also Im pretty sure I wore the shirt I brought tonight to one of the Orlando losses (DOH!). Not making that mistake again.
