My Night As The Verizon Scorekeeper Of The Game

By douglashdewing

On March 14th, I had the wonderful opportunity to hang out with Sarah Hecht (and others!) before and during the game after being selected as one of the winners of the Verizon Scorekeeper of the Night contest.  It was a great experience to go behind the scenes of a Trail Blazers game, and the use of a Verizon 4G LTE tablet for pictures and video made the experience even better.

After a brief tour of the front offices, I got to visit the underbelly of the Rose Garden Arena and stood starstruck as everything from the National Anthem performers, the Knicks, and even The Schonz wandered past me.  We hung out on the court for a few minutes while a few of the younger players took in some extra practice before heading up to the Club Level for the Pre-Game Jump.

Once the show was over, we headed up to one of the media rows to watch the game from some great seats with Erik Gundersen.  

IIt was hard to decide what was the best part of the night.  On one hand, a behind the scenes experience is always memorable.  On the other hand...

Blazers win!

Enter NOW for your chance to be next Verizon Scorekeeper of the Game!
