A couple months ago, I was treated to courtside seats at a Houston Rockets game. The Rockets were headed to the playoffs, where they would eventually flame out. But we didn’t know that then, and this game was fantastic!
James Harden almost ended up in my lap going for a loose ball. I talked to the ref. I exchanged pleasantries with the opposing coach. I told Jeremy Lin when to shoot. The Rockets won in overtime.
The problem is that now I’ve been spoiled by courtside seats. It’s like being bumped to first class. Don’t send me back to economy!
