Free Tickets

Just got off the phone with the Magic sales office. The free tix from the survey are lower bowl, against Utah on the 15th.

Darko & Arroyo join and meet the team in Cleveland after the break. The team is meeting there rather than gathering in Orlando first.

From a ticket sales perspective it's all Arroyo. There are 400,000 Puerto Ricans in Orlando and the phone is ringing off the hook for tickets to see him play including lots of group inquiries.

One of the guys in the ticket office was recently hired after working for the Pistons. He is telling everyone that Darko has quick feet, decent ball handling and a nice shot in practices.

Just as we are, everyone in the office is waiting to see what the team does with Francis. They have been told that nothing will happen until after this weekend. (He thinks there is an NBA moratorium on trades to keep the focus on the All Star activities.)

And there are plenty of tickets available for every remaining game this year.

    Very kewl WRD, ya can't beat free lower bowl tickets. I never thought about the Arroyo/Puerto Rican side of it, it would be nice to see some other sell-outs except for when the Lakers or Pistons or even the Rockets are in town.

    I remember one of the first Magic games I went to, in Nov of 1990, we sat 4 rows up from the floor. The cost of the tix... $45 each! How times have changed in 15 yrs huh?
