I am a long-time Pacers season-ticket holder who admittedly has some weight problems. My doctor has recommended that I get as much exercise as I can, and said I find that walking up the stairs to my seats in the Balcony has been great for my health!
Last week, I am at the game, and I am standing in the aisle a little out of breath from walking back to my seat from the concessions. I see a little kid two rows below my seat, with remnants of a hot dog all over his shirt. Quick as a flash, the kid looks over to a younger child seated next to him and snatches--and then devours in two bites--the smaller child's rainbow-flavored ice treat! His violent bites on the rainbow-flavored ice treat cause shards of ice to fly up in the air...and several pieces nail me in the eye. I am temporarily blinded, and then slip on a piece of ice that has come to rest at my feet. I tumble down the aisle and as I catch my footing, I find myself standing in front of the kid, whose face is covered in red-colored ice
At this point the kid yells "get out of my way, I'm trying to watch Lance, George, Paul, David and Roy!" and viciously bites me on the a$$. As one of his teeth gets stuck in the seat of my pants, he pulls me down on top of him. After a lengthy struggle, I am finally able to free myself. Stunned, all I can say to the kid and his mother is “I can't believe you did this to me--could you at least say "Gee, I’m sorry?" ” But they ignore me, and feeling in shock, I decide I need to get home. All I could think of on my drive home, is "Why did that happen? Why did that happen?"
In conclusion, we shouldn't allow any children at Pacers games.
