Okay, I just turned down box seats to the Lakers-Nuggets game tonight.
I know, it's bizarre behavior. I'm honestly not exactly sure if I'm thinking correctly. After all, there is no Dodger game tonight, and I'm likely going to be home watching the second half of the Laker game anyway. But my wife isn't much of a Laker fan, and she wasn't interested in going, so I just figured I'd pass, and spend time hanging out with the kids, playing with a wooden train set or reading books or letting me get covered in stickers. And strangely, I don't feel all that bad about declining the invitation.
Now if it was a Dodger game suite, I'm almost certain I'd go. Is that insane? Especially with the Lakers in the playoffs, and the Dodgers in month #2? Maybe it's because I've been to box seats at Staples plenty of times before, and the box experience, in my opinion, isn't great. Staples Center is so cavernous, that being in a box is sort of like being on the moon sometimes. I've been lucky enough to have floor seats at Staples, and I've been to tons of games seated in the lower level.
I grew up being a Laker fan, and I like the Lakers. I'll root for them, especially now that we're deep in the playoffs. But I don't follow them as closely anymore, and I only go to a couple of Laker games a year, so I don't have the same kind of passion for them as I do for the Dodgers.
So go ahead. Since we have an off-day, I figure you guys probably need a place to vent anyway. Tell me what a fool I am.
