Yesterday I went to the Warriors season opener game against the Lakers. It was fun to watch an NBA game live and soak in the atmosphere after a long time (my last visit being to the raucous Arco Arena with the Kings), although the game was completely uneventful. As expected the Warriors lost handily even though Kobe wasn’t playing. Is there a franchise with less-enthused fan base. These guys are the Arizona Cardinals of the NBA. It was so bad the crowd was booing the home team when they missed free throws in the 4th quarter and trailing by 14 points.

We left early to beat the crowds on BART. As we were walking out of the stadium, we were greeted with ads for anti-spyware and Oracle products. Only in Silicon Valley can you expect something like this to happen and people don’t even bat an eyelid.
