Getting my money's worth
When the game tipped off (see above), nobody could have guessed that it would take three overtime periods to determine a winner.
The Memphis Grizzlies played their fourth game in the playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder last night. The Thunder prevailed 133-123 to even the series at two games apiece.
The game began at 8:30 p.m. and didn't end until after 12:30 a.m. Because it was so exciting, it didn't seem like a four-hour game. (A typical game lasts 2 hours 30 minutes or slightly less.)
The Grizzlies gave a tee shirt and a yellow towel to each spectator who came to the sold-out FedEx Forum. The place was rocking and towels were waving.
I paid $57 for my ticket -- worth every penny.
