When we arrived at The Palace, we were very excited to learn that we would be sitting in courtside seats. This brought us right into the action of the game and made it very enjoyable for all of us. Also, Alex (my toddler son) was able to see Zap, the team Mascot, up close. He LOVED Zap.
The game we saw was the Detroit Shock vs. the Minnesota Lynx. I took personal pleasure in this match up as I have an older sister who lives in Minnesota. A Detroit Shock win would just give me one more thing to tease her about. (Sometimes sibling rivalry never goes away.)
Here are some pictures of the action during the game:
The Shock played well the entire game and pulled out a win. Woo Hoo! Of course, with any game comes a lot of stops and breaks for time outs, half time and such. Thankfully, there was never any “down time” as a viewer. There was always some sort of entertainment on the court whether it was a game between 2 fans, free pizzas being handed out, or the Shockwave dancers keeping us moving.
And when the entertainment wasn’t enough for my toddler, he just played a game of peek-a-boo with us or danced.
At the end of the game, we were given an opportunity to attend an autograph session with “Z” (Shavonte Zellous). She was very gracious to us. She signed our ticket and a Detroit Shock t-shirt for us. She also thanked my son when he told her “Good game”.
