The first time that I thought something might be up was when some cockgobbler walked up the stairs towards the concourse and tripped face first on his way up, spilling his beer everywhere. He got up as graciously as he could, and then threw a solid ass-slap at his colleague as he continued up the stairs. What possessed him to slap an ass after the fall is anyone's guess, but it was terrific theater.
Right behind us was another character - a character with a walking stick. Not a cane. Not a walker. A walking stick. Gandalf look-alike in the house!
I tried several times to take a surreptitious picture of staff man, but every time I tried he seemed to be staring right at me. Finally I was able to grab this picture:
Yeah, that's right, staff man! With a lovely lady in white as well!
The picture also shows another excellent feature of our section - apparently, we were sitting near an entire row of Energee Alumni. We thought it was odd that there were a number of vaguely attractive, but sort of worn-out looking, ladies near our section, but once a smattering of current Energee dancers wandered into our section for some contest, and the Alumni made a ruckus to make everyone aware that they were friends with the Energee girls, it became clear that we were in an Alumni section.
Yet another random-ass fan experience had to do with some guy who was studying physics during the game. No, seriously, he was reading a physics textbook. At the game. It's the dude in the red, standing up in the picture above. He's standing next to a guy in a Packers windbreaker, who we'll talk about in a minute. Anyway, the guy in the Bulls shirt (yes, he was wearing a Bulls shirt (Salmons Fan), with an Oklahoma University hat) was honestly reading a physics textbook during every time out and stoppage in play. And he carried it with him as he went to the concourse to take a piss or purchase a fucking clue.
During halftime, there were a bunch of mascots that navigated this inflatable American Gladiator obstacle course. Meh, compared to the action in Section 218, this was nothing.
Here's a Packers fan who ended up at the Bucks game on accident. And he put his windbreaker on backwards. You can clearly (or blurrily - sorry about the picture quality) see that this clown has the v-neck of his jacket facing backwards. Now, I've owned a number of shirts in my life, but never has the v-neck faced backwards. I'm pretty sure this is just your average Packers fan in terms of IQ, however.
Anyway, as for the basketball game, the Bucks won, thanks to their three-headed monster of Bogut, Jennings and Salmons. (Should we call them the Big Three?) It was important to note that Charlotte started Nazr Fucking Mohammed at center, with the backup center (and first guy off the bench) being Theo Ratliff. Yes, Theo Ratlif is 50. Stephen Jackson scored about 50 points, but did not punch even one fan during the game. He is getting soft.
