Top Ten (And A Half) Things Not To Do At A Lakers Game

8. Ask a complete stranger when the Clippers will be showing up.

7. Tell anyone within earshot that the team just isn’t the same since Wilt left.

3. Say “boy the Lakers suck” in the middle of the men’s restroom at half-time.

2. Use your wife’s camera to photograph the Laker Girls in the middle of a routine.

I really like this "and a half" thing. Used to follow NBA games in the late 80s and early 90s. Today's games seem...tamer, somehow. But that's just me.

And your #4 is just sooo mean. :-D

Please be careful. A number of items on that list could be construed as assisted suicide. Haha ;)
