Detroit Bad Boys Suite Night

New, comments

Let's just pretend Wednesday's game didn't happen, okay? Instead, here are some pictures from Tuesday's romp against the Nuggets, which I attended along with a handful of long-time readers of this site as guests in the suite courtesy of the team.

The night started with a behind-the-scenes tour led by Pistons director of strategic communications/blogger/friend of DBB Dave Wieme, which included passing Rasheed Wallace and Theo Ratliff in the hallway on their way to the locker room, a peek at the exclusive KeyBank Club, a short-cut through Bill Davidson's personal suite and a chance to watch the Pistons and Nuggets shoot-around from courtside. As if that wasn't enough, we eventually made our way up to the suite, which included both an excellent view of the game as well as a visit from the 1990 Larry O'Brien trophy.

The highlights? All of the above, as well as the chance to finally meet some long-time readers of the site, including Quick Darshan, sauce1977, Matt and Luke, as well as their friends and family. I know I can speak for everyone when I say we all had an incredible time, so I'd really like to thank Dave for making this all happen by reaching out not only to me but also Natalie from Need4Sheed, who hosted a similar event for some of her readers last month.

(It was so cool finally meeting people in person that this seems like a good time to remind you about the upcoming Blogfest on Sunday, April 13 against the Toronto Raptors. Last year the planning was thrown together at the last-second, but this time around the Pistons are actually helping facilitate things by taking orders and putting us all in the same section. For just $30, you'll get a ticket that normally sells for $35 plus a free hat and a chance to mingle with me, Natalie and your fellow readers, which is worth the price of admission alone, right?)
