My basketball experience with my dad As I was growing up, I would watch the Syracuse Orangemen games with my dad on the tv. Sometimes it would seem like we were rite there in the carrier dome cause my dad would rout on the team & when a basket was made he would jump out of his chair & do a cheer. It was so grand!! I always wondered what it would be like to actually go to a real game in the dome, hoping someday I will get that chance with my dad. November 15, 2011
