Despite a tough loss for the Sting (14-4), I had a very cool experience at the game tonight. They gave away a team picture that could be taken out onto the field to be signed by the players. My father and I watched a line build on the main concourse that wound it's way down through the stands and out on to the field. Upon inquiring about how to get down there with my father, an usher went out of his way to find out where to direct us and then acompanied us the whole way before taking us back up to the main concourse (which gave us a nifty behind the scenes look at the arena). The staff and the people that allowed us to get on line in front of them were all very accomodating to the situation. The players were also absolutely fantastic. Despite the loss they were all extremely friendly and very appreciative of the fan support. See why I love this team?
