    I do have to say I had a pretty bad experience with an usher last year at a playoff game. It was game 3 against the Heat and my 11 year old sister was with me, some of you know where we sit in our company seats, but it is right behind P's bench. During a heat of the moment after a big play she got up on her seat to cheer (she isn't that tall and everyone was staiding), and I know this isn't encouraged, but the usher kind of went off on her and gave her a dirty look and us a dirty look as well. And it was like really? Here the whole arena is going bananas we are beating the crap out of the heat, and you decide now is the perfect time to jump an 11 year old girl's **** for getting up on her seat in the middle of an exciting play? I was pretty taken aback, but for the most part my experience over 10+ years of attending games at the BLF has been positive when it comes to ushers. This was just one very odd time, but it did suck becuase my sister was kind of reserved the rest of the game after the usher had given her so much crap.
    No offense, but I would have had to say something.

    Stuff like that can have a long effect.

    That said, and as you mentioned, those ushers (and security folks) have a thankless job, and sometimes we forget the 10000 good things they do for the one things they really pissed us off.

    I understand it was this usher's job, but said usher knew us and has seen us at every game, it was the tone and decision to do it right then that was a bigger issue for me, but like I said one bad experience.
