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. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
