    Iowa Engergy

    Just got my tickets to the game Weds night, center court about 1/2 way up in the lower level. Stinson had a triple double last night, hope to see them win it all this week! Haven't been to a game yet this season but this one is hard to pass up, hope there is a good crowd for the game.

    Groupon has a deal right now where you get a seat (sounds like upper deck?), a hot dog, popcorn, soda, t-shirt and autograph photo of Stinson (valued at $15!) all for $12.

    Not bad if you are interested in going.

The Energy are defending NBA D-League Eastern Conference champions and local heroes of court destruction. Sink into upper-level seats during the second game of the D-League Finals, and watch as former Iowa State Cyclone and 2010–2011 league MVP Curtis Stinson attempts to de-fang the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. This deal grants spectators a voucher for a hot dog, popcorn, and soda, redeemable at any of the arena’s concession stands during commercial-break-simulating timeouts. During halftime, capering mascot Surge powers the arena with the renewable resource of trampoline dunks.

    Hope they can break an attendance record as they go for the championship.

    Also, if you work downtown the Energy mascot is handing out buy one get one free tickets right now in the skywalk. Just picked up two as I was getting my lunch.

    Re: Iowa Engergy

    Wish I had saw some of these promotions but I still didn't make out too bad with the promotion I got through work. $20 sideline tickets for $14 and the seats I got look to be pretty decent: section 104 row P which is center court in the lower level. I think the crowd is going to be good, were 4 other people there when I was all buying tickets to the game it sounded like.

    Re: Iowa Engergy

    From all indications, ticket sales are strong.

    From my understanding, the Iowa Energy is looking to set a couple attendance records with Wednesday night’s game 2 in the best of 3 series for the NBA-D League Final’s game at Wells Fargo Arena. Iowa is up 1 -0, so this could be for all the marbles.

    I believe they are shooting to break both the Des Moines record for attendance for a professional basketball game and also the D-League attendance record. I think the former is something like 9,300 when the Boston Celtics played an exhibition game several years ago in Des Moines at Vets. Maybe someone can confirm?


    Word on the street is tickets are going fast with several promotions including Groupon as well as corporations stepping up and buying tickets to give to employees. Prairie Meadows also had a coupon in the Sunday Register indicating they would give away 2,000 tix . Box office sales are going strong too (heard a couple days ago that 7,500 tix sold, so they are probably well past that number now.) I’ve noticed pretty good coverage in the local media as well.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Iowa Engergy

    A buddy got free tickets. Looks like I'm in. I've said on a handful of occasions that I didn't foresee any way I'd go to an Energy game, but what the hell? They're in the finals, and this might be the last chance I get to see Curtis Stinson play. The more time goes by the more I miss his game.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I'm in the same exact situation. Will thoroughly enjoy cheering on Stinson tomorrow night.
