You mean you didn't sit there for a while and case out the best empty seats... then when it looked like you were sure they would not be used, go down to them... complaining as you went to them, so the neighbors could hear, about the traffic, or something that detained you?
Seriously, in the Spectrum, if a person wanted they could buy the cheapest seats and only have to sit in them for one period... and have great seats for the rest of the game. That said, the Spectrum didn't have nearly the amount of no-shows as the (insert current bank name) Center does with it's corporate presence in the prime Lower Bowl seats.
... Now, I'm not confessing to anything, you understand.
