*WHERE MAGIC HAPPENS*

RJ White
Hey, Sixers! What kind of crazy entertainment do you have for your home opener tonight, now that you sort of got screwed by the fact that the 2nd half of game 5 of the World Series will have everyone's attention?

"Tonight at The Show"

Good, good, remind people that it is a show, of sorts...

"Sixers Giveaways"

Nice! Free stuff always brings 'em in!

"All Sixers Fans in attendance will receive Rally Towels compliments of KIA Motors as they enter and Sixers Magnetic Schedules compliments of Toyota as they exit."

Alright... okay, sure- scehdules for the fridge. Remind them there's still another 81 games. Good move, build the anticipation. And rally towels- as long as the ink from the Kia logo doesn't come off and enrash people, you're good.

"In-Game Entertainment"

Alright, now, here we go! First game of the season, bring the 'A' game! Make it a spectacle! Make it memorable!

"1/2 QTR Break: Hip-Hop & the Hare Raisers Dunk Show"

Oh. The scary rabbit guy? Well... yeah, he's the mascot and people like to see the dunks as well as they like a good dinger, so sure. Okay, yeah. No, this works- it's a primer, really get them all worked up for the halfti-

"Halftime: Human Slinky"

... I... um... what.

"3/4 QTR Break: Carvel Tricycle Race"

Oh, Sixers.

How about something more fun? Maybe hire some clowns to come in for the-

"Next Home Game: Knicks vs Sixers"

There we go!

Oh, Sixers. They're offering half-priced tickets to anyone going to the game tonight. Show your rain-logged stub and watch the Sixers for a couple of hours for half price! The deal of the century? You tell me.

I think they will end up pleasantly surprising people this season, but no one will care, because this city's heart is cold and hard toward professional basketball. Maybe if they played at the Palestra, people would drool all over themselves, but I doubt it.

I remember a time when basketball was more popular - when I was a kid and Doctor J was around, and then again with Iverson and Eric Snow and those guys. But yeah, that's the forgotten little sibling of sports in this town. I hate watching bball on tv, but I love going to games. Maybe I'll hit one this year.

The Sixers are actually a team that many people are picking as a sleeper... Elton Brand, Andre Miller, weak conference... they could have a good season.

THAT IS REAL.

Sadly. And, somehow, better than the hip-hop mimes they had as entertainment in round 1 of the playoffs vs. the Pistons.
