My brother has lived in Miami for about 8 years; he is a big Miami Heat fan but has never been to a game… until now.
2011 NBA Finals
We watched Miami play the Chicago Bulls on TV and although Game 7 was in Chicago, the sport networks showed images of thousands of people outside the American Airlines Arena (Heat’s home court) eagerly watching the life size screen. After the game wining shot of Game 7 which secured the Heat’s spot in the NBA Finals, the crowd erupted into a roar. I knew then I wanted to take my brother to watch a championship game.
Miami Heat vs Dallas Mavericks
If you want to feel the energy of a city, go see a sporting event.
The energy of the crowd is electrifying, an unforgettable experience that I am sure he will remember for years to come.
I remember while in Argentina we met some fellow travelers that went to watch a Bocca match. All they could say about the their experience was, “You have to experience it.” Unfortunately during our visit to Buenos Aires Boca Juniors were playing away. Now I have a sense of what they were talking about. Definitely a priceless experience to be had.
