5 things I would rather do than spend money to watch the Pacers

So think by Mark Boyle’s twitter feed that training camp has started for the Indiana Pacers.  Don’t worry if you didn’t notice because I don’t think you are alone.  So it got me thinking how there is a 0% chance that I would actually spend money on a ticket to watch the Pacers play this year.  I might go if someone gave me a lower level ticket and they were playing against someone I wanted to see but even then it would be a coin flip.  Let’s put it this way, here are 5 things I would rather do than pay to watch the Pacers play.

1.  Go see Butler or IUPUI play in their new digs

Two historic buildings are getting a facelift.  Hinkle will still host the Bulldogs of course and the Jags will be moving to the newly remodeled Coliseum at the Fairgrounds.

2.  Watch a Peppa Pig marathon with the 5-year-old

3.  Go to a High School basketball game

At $5 a ticket this is the best value you will find anywhere.  Couple that with the high level of talent you see on the court every year in Central Indiana and a box of popcorn and you have all you need.  I love taking the girls and they love to go.  The student body, the crazy parents, the band and cheerleaders.  It is great and for less than $40 we can all go and even get them hopped up on all the sugar they can stand.

4.  Take the wife to a chick flick

No really, the seats are more comfy and I get free refills on my cherry Icee.

5.  Have explosive diarrhea

I can play on my phone and no one is going to try to rush me out of the bathroom.
