Hey sports mavens, a question.

So I'm watching Surface on ATV (a pretty good thriller).

In the second episode, there's a seen that takes place at a Warrior v. Lakers game in SF.

One of two buds have scored box seats for the game.

As depicted in the show, this is a pretty luxurious space, but it seems pretty remote for the game, though not everybody can sit court side.

WTF.

Do people really enjoy the game from these box seats?

Does that really count as being 'at the game'?

Maybe sitting at home watching it on one's 65" OLED TV might be even better than box seats.

It just seems like such an anti-immersion experience to me.

Full disclosure though: I'm no sports mavin and of sports I do watch on rare occasions (no Beany and Cecil reruns) b-ball is pretty low on my list.

That and probably ticket pricing means I'm probably not the target market for such opulence.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Some boxes are like apartments.

There are usually perquisites (perks) to upper end boxes: free drinks and fancy food, and servers serving both, plush seats, video screens showing the game coverage, and out-of-the-elements climate control for “outdoor” stadiums.

We had Laker season seats for a few years. Very good location; neither courtsude nor crowsnest box territory.

Heaven.

The last season we had them was, as a Lakers fan, THE Season. 71/72. 33 game win streak and first World Championship in Los Angeles.

From my perspective the ‘luxury boxes’ are about catching some of the game while you do business/party. At the Fabulous Forum, even a lot of these the nosebleed seats gave you a usable view of the game, if you were a fan.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Would they have the ESPN TV signal on an 85” TV?

I was recently at a game where we had club seats, which were like box seats with less privacy.

IMO they're for doing business deals. If you're a real fan, you'll want to be out with the fans and without the wall of glass.
