    Default I just wanted to share this in a place where it will be appreciated.

    I am really the only Pacers fan I know in my country.

    While there are one or two of my friends who claim to like the Pacers, they are the types who are really haven't been following the team since Uncle Reggie retired.

    Today, I got the best news that a fan could ever get.

    MANILA, Philippines – The National Basketball Association (NBA) will stage its first-ever preseason game in the Philippines between the Indiana Pacers and the Houston Rockets this October.

    The NBA and SM today announced a partnership that will bring the Rockets and the Pacers to Manila for a game on Oct. 10 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    This will mark the NBA’s first preseason game in Southeast Asia as the league continues its growth globally. Basketball is the number one sport in the Philippines and the NBA is the first US professional sports league to stage a preseason game in the country.

    The Pacers will be playing right here in my city in October and I will finally be able to see my team in the flesh and not just on TV anymore!

    I am absolutely stoked.

    October cannot come any faster.

    Congratulations. I used to work with a woman from the Philippines, and she was CRAZY about the Pacers and had been before she moved to Indiana. She said that the NBA is very popular there and that every team had fans. I think when you attend the game, you'll run into a few, so enjoy it. I think a lot of people here in Indianapolis take it for granted, being able to see our team and the rest of the NBA players come to our city.
