So when I told our kids we were taking them to a Indiana Fever game, my oldest son was not thrilled. He thought it was going to be so lame. Boy, was he surprised!
The One to One Network hooked us up with some awesome tickets in the fourth row and Freddy Fever was close enough to get the kids fired up! We were surprised with a gift package in the first quarter which included t-shirts, cups, pencils, and a few other little goodies. Of course, the kids wanted to put the shirts on right away.
Let me tell ya, WNBA fans are fierce. I’ve been to other professional sporting events before and have never quite witnessed the fire of the WBNA fans. Even my husband who gets fired up at games was kind of chuckling a bit. Hey, the fans ♥ their team.
While Conseco Fieldhouse is huge, it seemed intimate and like many of the fans already knew each other, which gave it an almost high school game atmosphere feel instead of a professional game feel. Don’t let that fool ya though, as these were professional women playing at the highest level.
The Indiana Fever put on a great game. They play hard and it was a fun atmosphere. You can see their passion for basketball. The game we attended even went into overtime and came right down to the wire. Towards the end of the game, I looked over at our eight year old son and he was screaming his head off like a madman he was so in the zone.
The highlight for my husband was listening to Pat Summit at half time. It was Inspiring Women Night and they were celebrating high achieving women in sports. It was pretty cool to hear Pat Summit interviewed at halftime especially since he is a Tennessee Vols fan.
After the game, I asked the kids if they had fun. They all screamed yes! My son, who was not thrilled about being there, said it was fun because he was able to actually watch basketball and proudly wore his Indiana Fever shirt to day camp today!
