I have an honest question that may interest most of you. First of all, let me be very clear that this is not a disrespectful post toward the team, coaching staff, individual player(s), or the fans. Please know that I just have an honest question and have never read anything about this in the past, but I could have missed it if it were.
My father & I attended last night's game. We sat in section 324 seats 15 and 16. As the game was about to tip- off, my dad asked me, "Is this thing not sold out?" As I scanned the gorgeous KFC Yum! Center I understood what he was asking. Even in our section there were 7 empty seats next to us and in front of us. As I looked over the lower level seats I saw rows of unused seats that were empty the entire game. I've heard that the crowd exceeded 21,000, but I honestly have to take issue with that.
There we were on the ESPN Big Monday Prime Time game and we had MANY empty and unused seats! Why? I cannot understand why the seats are not being sat in? For us to come to a game requires 8 hours. 2 & half up there, 2 & a half at the game, & 2 and a half coming home. We set in upper level seats because that's all we can seem to get, but lower level prime time seats are empty! Why! If you live in the 'Ville or within a 30 minute drive to the Arena, why are you not there? Are you not using your tickets?
Last Christmas my family & I played "Dirty Santa" with gift exchanges of fun items. I took a calendar of some industrial company that we do business with & inside of it I wrapped up this year's poster with Kyle & Chris on it. In my family are a bunch of pUKe fans so I knew I'd get'em with the poster. However, when they opened it up, the first thing they said was, "Look at all the empty seats! Ha ha! LOL! You all build a 22,000 seat arena & you can't even fill it! We (pUKe) fill our house every night. Y'all can't even give your tickets away!!!" So I guess I'm asking: "Why are we not filling up the Yum! Center? And, if you have lower arena seats & you're not using them...CALL ME! I'll drive from the Central Time Zone to be there if you won't!
