Finally have tickets in hand! Any advice from regulars?

20 posts in this topic

Hello all, I finally found myself in a position to get some tickets to my first game and have them in hand :D. I am coming up for the CAR vs TN game this sunday all the way from Alabama and looking for the full experience. Anyone have any advice on things to do the day of/before/or after? Any opportunities for autographs? Ins and outs on tailgating, parking or shopping at the stadium? I'm also active duty and this being Veterans weekend, does the stadium have anything planned? Any help or advice for the full experience would be awesome and most heartedly appreciated. I'm so stoked! Will be in section 343, which looks like a really good view point. Thanks in advance!

Last time I went to boa with my dad we walked around the stadium until we saw the players cars parking lot. Chris harris and Otah were walking in together and signed my hat that I was wearing and chatted it up for like 15 min before they went in.

However peppers and gamble were assholes and just walked right past us. Its good to know at least some of the team is personable.

If you want autographs and are going to be in town on Friday morning, then come by practice, I believe they start around 10 am on Friday and it usually runs about 2 hours.

Drink beer before you go in unless you have a trust fund set aside for it.

Stop by the WFNZ Doghouse before the game, good spot if you don't have a tailgate to attend.

Sunday is Military Appreciation Day at BOA. Not sure of all the activities, though.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
