The #Pistons are closing out the season Thursday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills against the Sixers. This may be the last time you’ll see Ben Wallace on court in a Pistons uniform, so if you can get out to the Palace you should give it a try.
If Ben Wallaces’ possible retirement doesn’t get you to come out for the last time this season, than the halftime show of Salt-n-Pepa just might.
And you didn’t think the girls could look this good after all these years.
Have some Ice at the Palace
“We are pleased to announce the entertainment line-ups for our upcoming theme nights which include exclusive player themed poster give-a-ways for the first 10,000 fans in attendance at each game and halftime musical entertainment,” said Harlan Hendrickson, Vice President of Lifestyle Marketing for Palace Sports & Entertainment and the Pistons. “Theme nights are a fun way to provide our fans with additional entertainment elements at our games.”
The club will host “I love the ‘80’s” night on Friday, January 27 when the Pistons square off against Joe Johnson, Josh Smith and the Atlanta Hawks at 7:30 at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The give-a-way item for that night is a commemorative Jonas Jerebko poster and halftime musical entertainment will feature 1980’s hit-maker Morris Day.
Younger Pistons’ fans won’t want to miss “Totally ‘90’s” night on Friday, February 3 when Detroit hosts Brandon Jennings and the Milwaukee Bucks at 7:30 p.m. at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The first 10,000 fans in attendance will receive a commemorative Ben Gordon poster and the halftime musical performer will be 1990’s rapper Vanilla Ice, who’s single “Ice Ice Baby” was the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts.”
I’m all over it!
Even though my team is going through some tough times, I’m going to head out to the games to give them support. I can’t wait for my Greg Monroe Poster on Friday night.
And don’t think I’m not going to head out to mock Vanilla Ice. Who wouldn’t want more comedy at the half than during the game?
The 21-38 Detroit Pistons will be hosting The 36-21 Boston Celtics tonight at the Palace. Set another Sheed return aside, the Pistons are hosting something bigger than a ball game tonight. The Pistons Care Telethon is in progress and set to feed a lot of hungry people in Michigan. If you can help, even if it’s only a dollar, please do.
On a personal note, I’ll will be a guest of Celtics Late Night, after the game to give them my take on the Detroit side of things, as well as a lot of good natured (not really) ribbing about all things I hate that are green.
The Show starts at 11:00, and as soon as I get back from the game I will be joining the show Live. If you are so inclined, please call in so I can chat with my fellow Pistons fans. Let’s show the Celtics fans we mean business.
And to make things…better (or maybe worse) I spotted Rajon Rondo and Tony Allen last night when I was having dinner and gave them both the evil Pistons StinkEYE. Does that GuaranSWEDE a Pistons win? Not sure it does, but it sure made me feel good.
