Quick Change Defines Game for Suns and Bulls

At first, it appeared the Phoenix Suns would blow out the Chicago Bulls in a game that would clinch the Suns a playoff spot in the Western Conference.  They took an early 12-point lead and were ahead by nine points at the end of the first quarter.  That quickly changed in the second quarter as the Bulls caught up and took a three point lead into halftime.
At halftime, Quick Change performed.  The last time I saw Quick Change perform was this winter at a Northwestern men’s basketball game.  As usual, …

Tonight’s best game to attend is actually in Milwaukee as the Milwaukee Bucks host LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Bradley Center. If you are not looking to drive that far your next option is to watch the Dallas Mavericks play the Chicago Bulls at the United Center.
As usual tickets for the Bucks game are cheap. StubHub is currently listing upper level seats for less than $20. Bulls’ tickets are also cheap – upper level seats between $20 and $30. Be sure to use …

Entertainment Breaks Out at Bulls Game

For some, attending a Chicago Bulls game on a cold winter night can be considered, well, boring. However, tonight the Bulls (or I should say the Grizzlies and the fans) added some entertainment that was unexpected.
First, during the first timeout of the first quarter, hypnotist Tom Silver, ran onto the court and announced he was looking for volunteers for the halftime show. He selected 40+ people randomly and they went into a back room to be further “evaluated.” It seemed that anyone who was within the first couple of rows …

The Chicago Bulls game is by far the best game in Chicago or Milwaukee today. Plus, it should be cheap as the Bulls are playing the Memphis Grizzlies. Plan to use the everyday game ticket buying strategy as you arrive at the United Center.

Beating the (Chicago) Bull(s) at Their Own Game

The Bulls and many other teams would have you believe that their group rates are the way to save money. As I prepared to go to the game tonight on a cheap, pre-bought $10 ticket, I could not help but think at how people are duped into shelling out money for sports tickets regardless of how much teams ask.
Case in point, I bought a “group” ticket for $23 for Friday night’s Bulls game. Part of my evening on Friday night included chatting with the Bulls ticket manager. With the understanding …

For the first time since January 11, the Chicago Bulls are home on a Monday night. They host the Atlanta Hawks at the United Center starting at 7 pm tonight. Tickets to the game should be cheap so wait to buy outside of the arena rather than purchasing from StubHub.
If you want to see the Connecticut women’s basketball team continue on their undefeated season (they are two wins short of their previous Division I record of 70 consecutive wins), drive over to South Bend, IN to see them …

$40 for a $120 ticket: Knicks at Bulls

With the wife not getting home until late Tuesday night, I attended the Chicago Bulls game versus the New York Knicks.
Pre Game Dining and Parking
I parked on Washington Blvd. in between Wood St. and Wolcott Ave. for free and walked a few blocks to Billy Goat’s Tavern before the game. This one block on Washington Blvd. (two blocks directly north of the United Center) is the only block north of the arena where you can see the United Center with no parking restrictions.
Obtaining Tickets
I did not have a $10 …
