Save The Heat! Team To Hold Telethon (Sort Of)

Wednesday, April 02, 2008


Well this is one way to get the fans involved. All of the Heat's injured players are planning on taking calls from potential season ticket holders tonight in an effort to raise sales...

In an effort to generate buzz for HEAT Season Tickets, all HEAT players listed as inactive for tonight's game will join HEAT Season Ticket Sales operators during halftime of the New Orleans Hornets versus Miami HEAT game being held Wednesday, April 2. The HEAT players, along with the HEAT Dancers, will be standing by awaiting calls to assist with the purchasing of new HEAT Season Tickets. Potential HEAT Season Ticket Holders will have the rare opportunity to speak with HEAT players Marcus Banks, Udonis Haslem, Shawn Marion, Alonzo Mourning, Dwyane Wade, Jason Williams and Dorell Wright*, as well as members of the “Most Popular Dance Team in the NBA,” the Miami HEAT Dancers.
I guess this is a good, but I'm not sure the players are going to have so much fun with this. Being a person that has sold tickets for an NBA team let me tell you that it isn't always fun. I was trying to convince Jordan lovers that the Wizards were better off with Gilbert Arenas. Trying to convince people to spent thousands of dollars on a team that's 13-61 might be impossible.

I don't think that Heat is supposed to in all caps. BUT I COULD BE WRONG.

Yeah, why is HEAT always written in Caps? I'm really wondering.

"OH MY GOD, DWYANE WADE!!! ... Wait, what? Who's Dorell Wright? ... Can you transfer me to D-Wade? Yes, I'll hold."

Off topic, but just an interesting tidbit from the 10pm Baseball Tonight: Fernando Vina should not be asked if "MLB should suspend players named in the Mitchell Report."

Did anyone see Brian McKinney's interview of Chad (7-Eleven) Johnson today on Sportscenter? Uncomfortable, atrocious, and pointless come to mind. If you saw it you know what I'm talking about..... "Open forum Chad"

Brian Kenny usually does a good job (wish I saw it). I thought Dave O'Brien was gonna focus on doing more Red Sox games on radio and not on ESPN TV. I know Shulman can't be everywhere, and EA looked like she was freezing to death in the Bronx tonight.

@tainted alligator souffle:
Do you have 74 Honda scooters? Fernando Vina is also on ESPN 1000 this very moment for some reason. I'd rather deal with Chris Singleton and his limited skills than Vina the Steroid User.
