This week, I took a little baby step outside the hermetically sealed world of pro sports by attending Oakland Tech’s home game against rival Oakland High. It was a like going to a Warriors game in that the teams played basketball with five players on either side. In every other respect, it was quite different:
• Tech charged us $5 to get in. While that still struck me as a bit steep for a high school game, it was a nice break from the $20-plus the Warriors charge for what can only technically be described as “professional” ball.
