Indiana Pacers players George Hill and Paul George have teamed up with Gatorade to create a new fan section in Bankers Life Fieldhouse called the Pacers G2 Zone.

The duo has also created G2 TV for the Pacers website.
   
Pacers fans who want to be a part of the Pacers G2 Zone will pay $135 Pacers for a ticket for five home games, a G2 Zone T-shirt, a Gatorade game towel and an invitation to special events with Hill and George.

The price comes out to $27 per game--$24 (George’s number) plus $3 (Hill’s number), explained Pacers spokesman Eddie White. Seats in the Pacers G2 Zone will be in Section 120 of the Krieg DeVault Club Level, which, according to White, features an array of amenities including in-seat wait service, shorter concession lines and larger seats.

“PG and I were tossing around doing something and this idea came up and we loved it,” said Hill, a former standout at IUPUI and Broad Ripple High School. “We want to get some great fans in our section and then we are going to rock it on our G2 TV at Pacers.com.”  

The format and content of the duo's TV show will vary widely.

"It could cover just about anything," White said. "It will be things like movie reviews from the two Georges, discussions about recent road trips, tours of their homes and hometowns or really just about anything about the two of them and their interests on or off the court."

The pilot show was put up this week and the two plan to put out a new TV show at least once a week.

"Any time they have an idea, they're going to produce a new show," White said. "I think this show is going to really be something because the two of these guys are really getting into it big-time."

Games featured in the Pacers G2 Zone package include: March 23 vs. Phoenix; March 29 vs. Washington; April 9 vs. Toronto; April 16 vs. Minnesota and April 23 vs. Detroit.

  1. I took Bruce's comments to highlight a glaring issue when it comes to a state's image, and therefore its overall branding. An example is Michigan vs. Indiana. Michigan has done an excellent job of following through on its branding strategy around "Pure Michigan", even down to the detail of the rest stops. Since a state's branding is often targeted to visitors, it makes sense that rest stops, being that point of first impression, should be significant. It is clear that Indiana doesn't care as much about the impression it gives visitors even though our branding as the Crossroads of America does place importance on travel. Bruce's point is quite logical and accurate.

  2. I appreciated the article. I guess I have become so accustomed to making my "pit stops" at places where I can ALSO get gasoline and something hot to eat, that I hardly even notice public rest stops anymore. That said, I do concur with the rationale that our rest stops (if we are to have them at all) can and should be both fiscally-responsible AND designed to make a positive impression about our state.

  3. I don't know about the rest of you but I only stop at these places for one reason, and it's not to picnic. I move trucks for dealers and have been to rest areas in most all 48 lower states. Some of ours need upgrading no doubt. Many states rest areas are much worse than ours. In the rest area on I-70 just past Richmond truckers have to hike about a quarter of a mile. When I stop I;m generally in a bit of a hurry. Convenience,not beauty, is a primary concern.

  4. Community Hospital is the only system to not have layoffs? That is not true. Because I was one of the people who was laid off from East. And all of the LPN's have been laid off. Just because their layoffs were not announced or done all together does not mean people did not lose their jobs. They cherry-picked people from departments one by one. But you add them all up and it's several hundred. And East has had a dramatic drop I in patient beds from 800 to around 125. I know because I worked there for 30 years.

  5. I have obtained my 6 gallon badge for my donation of A Positive blood. I'm sorry to hear that my donation was nothing but a profit center for the Indiana Blood Center.
