In 1999, I purchased my first 36ers season tickets with my buddy Gary. We won the title. We repeated in 1999/2000. So did the 36ers. I'm not sure why I didn't back up again, but before I knew it 11 years had passed and I'd only seen a handful of other 36ers games. The most memorable was the one where Julius Hodge didn't play due to his self-imposed lockout. Fast forward to 2011 and I'm a dad of 3 boys and felt this was a good excuse/reason to buy some season tix again. I love watching basketball up close and love analysing the game and how it unfolds. When you jump on a team backing up from a last place finish, there's plenty to analyse.
We're already a few games into the 2011/2012 season, but I guess it's better late than never. To understand my fandom a little more, here's some questions I asked myself.
