View Full Version : Jermaine O'neal MOJO!!!!!!! Game recap!

03-31-2007, 07:23 PM
well first off let me tell you that I enjoy watching the pacers...be it them losing or not it is what it is...got to see jermaine o'neal today and that was a huge plus...I had asked em early in the day at the team hotel if he was playing and he told me he didn't know...which bummed me out because I was wanting to see him play! He ended up playing and it was all good...except for the idiot fans in my ear all game "JO SUCKS!" "I'D BUY HIS JERSEY!" everytime he missed a shot..."SIT DOWN O'NEAL YOU SUCK!" i mean i know razzing is one thing but these idiots constantly did it the whole game...he was playing on one leg and really almost brought a tear to my eye watching him play because I think he's what every NBA player should be like. You know everytime we got it close it seemed the magic pushed it back up again. It's ok i had a fun time...Now theres one thing i have been trying to get for 4-5+ years now...and that's JO's shoes...I know it may not seem like a big deal but for me it is..he finally said i could have them! As he left the court he told me "I'm going to give them to my security guard and he'll bring em out" Fine...But i have no team pass! which means bye bye building! I was crushed and let me tell you i didn't know what to say at that point...as i was leaving some really nice lady saw my disheartened look and asked what was wrong? i said all i wanted was 1 minute so i could waiyt for JO's security to bring those out..the idiot arena security said "He told me hes not bringing them out" bahhhhh ok clown...well the lady let me sit with her and her son who had a guest pass! I eventually asked a person with a pacer cred. (nice black guy donno who it was) if Joe (jo's security) if he had seen him...he said hes still waiting on JO...fine...well when he did see Joe he asked em about the shoes and he comes out and tells me that hes going to get them from Jermaine...so i wait oh a good 45 minutes after that and most players are leaving...side note danny granger is such a nice guy....really respectful to people and a humble kid...work on the shot bud! but anyways the only one left was darrell armstrong..and JO's security guy brings em out and puts em on a little table like 6 ft from me...? why i have no idea but he didn't hand them to me...I ask the other arena security 2 hand me them and he throws his hands up and says "He has to give them to you"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this guys basically telling me the guy has to give them to me but by then JO's security walked off! So as armstrong was walking into the tunnell I said to em "Darrell...see JO's shoes right there? he told his security to bring them out for me but i can't reach em on that table" Well this dick security guy proceeds to tell em "I don't know that...he might have left them there for someone else or by mistake!" even tho he knew all along what i was waiting on! he even tryed telling me that JO's security told em he's not bringing the shoes out! i knew he was lying! well DA calls JO and gets no answer on his phone...I'm bummed at this pt thinking there right there why cant i have em? so DA says "Give me a minute i'm going to go see if he's on the bus" ...I thought oh no if he leaves thats it...well this security guy goes "Ill give you 2 mins to see if he comes back if not you got to go" OMG He was about to make me leave with the shoes sitting right on that table! this clown wanted em i knew it...well at the last moment i see DA walking through the tunnell and he tells the security he talked to JO and jermaine said "He left em for the kid"...THANK YOU! geeez,...so the guy had to give em to me...I felt like ? this guy knew what iwas waiting on but made sure he could some way make it so i didnt get them!
4 1/2 yrs but i finally got em...just wanted to share some pics with u guys...

still in shock i finally got em...:)

it was worth it tho :)

and this was inside them! game used rubberbands! he never gives these out from what I know! his daughter gives em 2 em and everytime i see someone ask for em he says "I don't give those out"
