The forecast is calling for "Dwight Out" conditions in Atlanta this weekend.
Preparations are being put in place as the first round playoff series between the Atlanta Hawks and the Orlando Magic heads to the ATL for Games 3 and 4 on Friday and Sunday. And the Hawks are asking their fans to give former Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy star Dwight Howard a little bit of a welcome home greeting when he takes the Philips Arena floor for both games.
If all goes well, it's going to be a total "Dwight Out."
Hawks officials are asking that every fan in attendance wear white to the "Highlight Factory" to show their support for the home team in both games. With everyone with a ticket getting a (presumably) white t-shirt compliments of Philips Electronics for Game 3 on Friday night -- that shouldn't be much of a problem if you get there and forget to wear the right colors to send Howard and the Magic a message about how rough of a place it's going to be to play in the ATL this year.
However, with the only rally towels available for Game 4 on Sunday, you gotta remember not only to bring your tickets to the game, but your white shirt, too.
Only standing room tickets remain for Friday night's Game 3, while some selected seats were still available as of Thursday afternoon for Game 4. But quantities are going fast. So log online to that big behemoth mega-ticket website and get 'em while they last.
