Just got back from Suns shootaround over at the Memorial Coliseum. I don't think I'd want to play every game over there, but after being in that building with the curtains down and the sun shining through, I have to say I can see what all the "Save The MC" fuss was all about. For whatever faults it have, it's still a pretty cool building. People are right when they say there's not a bad seat in the house. The highest vantage at the MC is about where the Lexus Club Level is at the Rose Garden. I think tickets are still available for $19.70, so swoop up a couple if you already don't have plans.
Sports reporter intern wunderkind Max Mandel and I will have some updates from Suns shootaround, including an interview with Channing "Buffet Of Goodness" Frye, Amar'e Stoudemire and "Thunder" Dan Majerle. Some interesting dudes.
But in the meantime, take a gander at some of the pictures I shot over at the MC today. Should get your blood flowing for tonight's game. Click on any of the pictures for a bigger image.
First, my panoramic attempt. This is three pictures cut together. That's pretty obvious on the right side, but I nailed the left side dead on.
Another shot, slightly left of center facing northwest. Better perspective and whatnot.
Center court facing west.
Slightly to the right, facing southwest.
