Pacers-Pistons (almost) Blows Up Again

Filed in SportsTags: Pacers - NBA- Bomb scare delays Pacers-Pistons game:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - The threat of a bomb in Indiana's locker room delayed the start of the Pacers-Detroit Pistons game for 1 hour, 25 minutes Friday night.

Can the NBA just cancel all future Pacers-Pistons games in Detroit? Just to be fair, I'd be willing to give up ever having the Pistons in Indianapolis again, too.

Indianapolis Colts Forever

Colts Owner Jim Irsay says his loyalty to Indy is strong:

"Q: But you're the son of the man who moved the Colts. Like father, like son?

A: It's strange, because I don't like franchise movement. Sometimes when it's necessary at the very end of a very problematic situation, it needs to occur. But being one of the teams that has moved, obviously that was my dad's era. But I believe in franchise stability. I believe that creating a legacy and having a tradition is what sports is all about in terms of rivalries and creating a generation of fans. The real equity you have is in the fans' love of the game, and that equity is gained through many decades of building a legacy."

Really, can we stop talking about this now? I know the media find rumors of the Colts moving to Los Angeles sexy, but again and again, Irsay has said just the opposite - that he intends to build a Super-Bowl franchise in Indianapolis. The new stadium is on its way (if the Indiana lawmakers can ever get their act together).

Oh, and I'm planning on becoming a season ticket holder. My playoff tickets were Secton 327 (Yellow) seats. Full-season tickets there are $490. I'm thinking that's my range - unless I can find some killer seats in the Red ($550) section.
