The Tar Heels Come to Texas

College hoops has a big night when one of historical powerhouses make their way to Austin. The North Carolina Tarheels take on Texas. While this is not one of the stout Tarheel teams that competed for the national championship over the last decade they are ranked in the top 25.

The only other time Texas has faced a ranked opponent this season the game ended with a 23 point loss to Georgetown. This North Carolina game will be followed up by a trip to play Michigan State. Side note – Don’t you just love college basketball where teams can schedule tough games during the season because there is an actual tournament at the end?

Texas is a team full of youth and they are still missing their floor general with Myck Kabongo still being held hostage by the NCAA. Don’t expect that answer to come before the North Carolina game.

The Frank Erwin center is never the most hopping of basketball environments but tonight should be a pretty good night for even the average college basketball fan. If Texas can pull off a win in this game, it could change the trajectory of the 2012/2013 season.

I know I will be all over this game.

Father-Son Time Gets Even Sweeter with a Visit from Kevin Durant

Here at TicketCity, we love to creat unforgettable experiences for our customers. We achieve this in many ways, oftentimes helping to find just the right seats to the game or show to which a fan has anxiously been counting down the days. Other times we plan VIP experiences that even the rich and famous would envy.

But sometimes, as in the case of Keith from Austin, fate steps in to help make an already amazing experience that much better.

Keith came to TicketCity for tickets to the TicketCity Legends Classic basketball game between Texas and Rhode Islande yesterday. Since the start time of the game was 3:00 p.m., Keith had decided to check his son, Ryder, out of school early to make a father-son day out of it. We never could have predicted what happened next. Below is the e-mail we received from Keith describing their experience.

 

“I surprised my 6 year old son by pulling him from school early and making it a father/son afternoon. Well what transpired after that was unreal. We got to the stadium a bit early, and were identified by a UT rep and asked to come down and sit in the recliners court side. My son Ryder is a huge Kevin Durant fan and was wearing his OKC jersey at the game. Lo and behold, 5 minutes later Kevin Durant came up to him and introduced himself to my son. I’ve attached a pic.   Thanks again for your generosity…we made memories yesterday that will last a life time!”

 

Now that is one father-son day that will be hard to beat! We are thrilled to have played a small part in making this happen. A special thanks to Keith for sharing his story and picture with us. Do you have an unforgettable experience of your own you’d like to share? We’d love to hear about it!
