Magic are giving away free tickets to the game tonight. Not sure if any are left. I just got 4ea.

Go to: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/22004115CA9...

Go to Promotions and Offers and enter code BUZZ4PHIL. No catch.

By the way, suddenly the Atlanta loss is not quite as bad. They are 3-0.

I just showed it to one of my friends and it worked and she got free tickets too! Upper Bowl, but a nationally covered game. Ticketmaster still hits you with a convenience charge and you pay about $5.50...but worth it!

I have to say, I'm really bummed about the support this team is getting from the community. I live on the coast, so it's a haul to get to the games after work, but I still bought a 10 game package...

Come on Central Florida, support your team!

I'm going tonight to the game, maybe i should wear 76ers jersey so i won't be embarrassed ? Either it'll be a very good game going to the last possession, or they will KILL us...

Full or NOT, we better not lose this one on freakin TNT.
Its all about first impressions around this league. If we get wacked, everybody continues to disrespect as usual. Energy and defense will win it tonight. Philly is another Atlanta with a better big man.
You got time to practice and watch tapes the last 2 days and do whatever you have to, to focus and re-energize your buttocks. Time to capitalize show the league who we really are.
Worst of all. Barkley will eat us ALVIE!
GO MAGIC!!

These are brutal economic times. I think a lot can't afford it. 2 years ago, I made well into 6 figures. I make about 1/3 now. If not for the free tickets, no way could we go.

DonT feel to bad about your drive. I drive from Homestead (Keys gate) when they play on the weekends to watch them.

Yeah I hope we win, but Philly is a pretty good team and the Heat just beat them last night so they are probably going to play harder tonight.

Side note: I guess I'm too late for the free tickets. I tried the code but no seats were available.

Honestly, it can go either way. I was reading HOWARD's blog and the team understands how the fans feel and more importantly how shoddy they look.
With that said, this can go either way. Philly has been pretty inconsistent just like us. Philly got beat by Miami last night. So it can go either way. I think we'll come out with much more energy tonight.
In all Honesty, I don't think anybody can beat us when we are fully charged up.

Yeah, Maybe because Toronto is 3-1, Amare just got 49 last night and Howards Magic is still looking for itself...lol

Are you sure those aren't Fantasy rankings? Cause those guys can actually hit a FT.

Nope. sucks man...why do we always end up with a big man that can drop Free Throws?
