I am not into sports (except dog mushing) but while I was in the lower 48 over the holidays I had a chance to see my first pro sports game of any kind - an NBA game (Timberwolves v. Pistons) at the Target Center in Minneapolis. I was seated on the court, on the end, just about six seats from the basket. Governor Jesse Ventura sat about ten seats above me, scowling through the whole game even though the Timberwolves won. What a rush! You know, even the little players are big when you are that close! The seat was $280 (no, I didn't pay for it!) The stub would go in my scrapbook if I had one . . .
