Hit by a Pitch

Suggestion for the Nuggets

without comments

We went to the Denver Nuggeenjoying the gamets game last night and it was pretty dead at the Pepsi Center. I suppose the Milwaukee Bucks aren’t a big draw, but apparently the economy is hitting NBA fans. We were the only people sitting in our whole row, which, don’t get me wrong, was really nice because Soren got his own seat and our stuff got its own seat. It’s awesome that Soren is big enough to sit in his own seat at sporting events and we don’t have to worry about the seat snapping closed and eating him like a venus flytrap, like we did in the early days.

It feels like we hadn’t been to a Nuggets games since Hector was a pup (Chris Marlowe, Nuggets play-by-play guy, says “since Hector was a pup” all the time). Let’s face it — that shit is expensive. Well, it’s either expensive or your seats totally suck and you’d be better off staying home. Without free tickets, we would’ve blown almost $200 last night, and I had only one beer. Tangent: I don’t know why, but it’s hard to find good beer on the club level of the Pepsi Center. Fat Tire was the best option at most of the bars we checked and I’m not a fan. No offense to New Belgium (they’re cool and I like some of their stuff), but Fat Tire is the microbrew you like if you don’t know anything about microbrews. Eventually we found Dale’s Pale Ale by section 248, so keep that in mind next time you’re wandering around the club level at the Pepsi Center drinking water with lemon because you don’t want to bother with Fat Tire or Stella. (I freely admit I’m a ridiculous beer snob, but what are you gonna do? I’d rather not drink beer than drink beer I don’t love.)

Anyway, my suggestion for the Nuggets is as follows: Look. My sources tell me you’ve had terrible attendance for most of the season, and last night indicates that this is correct. It’s kind of embarrassing to have so many empty seats. So here’s what I’ll offer you. Feel free to give me free tickets any time you’d like, and I’d be happy to attend the game with Ben and Soren. We’ll fill up a few seats and scream our asses off like the crazed fans we are and also spend a few bucks on good beer when we find it. This is a win/win situation, right? I’m happy to help!

I’d also be happy to take crappy pictures and post them on the internet. I’m sure there’s a need for this somewhere that is not being met. Check out my stunning photo montage that includes the events leading up to the Carmelo Anthony ejection last night!
