… into front-row Raptor’s tickets, ha!april 10 2008

I thought a fun episode would be “Exploring Canada’s NBA Team”, so I wrote to the guy in charge telling him that and asking for a ‘one-day media credential’ (that’s industry speak for “press pass” I learned).  He wrote back saying no problem, there should be room for me in the press area up in the nosebleeds.

Last night I arrived at the gate, hung the pass around my neck and after that no one looked at me twice.  

So I wandered all over the place… backstage, the staff cafeteria, peeked into the dressing room corridor and then settled into the front row and took in the game.
