If you live in central Indiana, you know how Indianapolis loves its sports, and its sporting arenas. Conseco Fieldhouse is easy to navigate, and the facility is world-class. our four-yr old had no trouble (i.e. I’m tired! Carry me!) walking from the parking lot (we parked south of the train tracks–$3–can you beat that?) all the way to our seats. Actually, our first stop was a caricature artist, who kindly drew our family of four. That alone made trip worth it!
As I mentioned, we were hooked up with floorside seats. Floorside. Which was fabulous, and provided a great view of the action, which BgK and I appreciated. The kids, to our amazement, preferred to watch via the Jumbo-tron. The Fever’s mascont, Freddy Fever, made frequent walk-throughs all around the stand. This THRILLED Jr. MAM chose to sit under her seat when he came by.
The action was fun to watch, and as it turns out, the game went into a five-minute overtime, which were the most exciting minutes of play. Here’s the thing-the Fever is good–as in best-record-in-the-league good, at an impressive 14 wins, 4 losses (as of 7/31). Which means that chances are, when you see a game this August or September, you will see the home team win.
I think a WBNA game is a good first-basketball game venue because it’s a laid-back, friendly atmosphere. There’s entertainment during game breaks, promotional items given out left and right, and good seats (if you kids aren’t into the Jumbo-tron) are reasonably priced. And actually, they just got more reasonable with a discount code!! The One2One Network and the WNBA are offering the code: WNBABLOG for special discounts depending on your area. For the FEVER, it’s buy one ticket, get one of equal value for FREE.
The Kahuna family definitely enjoyed our night at the Fieldhouse, watching the Fever win in OT over the Sun. If you are looking for a fun night out, role models for your children, or a basketball fix in the middle of summer, the WNBA can do any or all of the above!!
