The games are bigger...the heart beats faster..the Heat is on!

That title above used to be the Heat's playoff slogan during the 2008-2009 season.

Tickets then were so easy to come by that people were giving them away. To get a seat at the "Heat's house" today, you'll have to give up a arm, leg, used car, take your pick.

I'm guilty as well, I should have listened to Riley and paid the $500 to be a Heat season ticket holder pre Miami Thrice, now a "Heat fan" should look to spend $300 a seat, in section 300, not even for a good game.

Forgot the Dec. 2 game against Cleveland, the chances of getting tickets to that game or Christmas Day against the Lakers are... well there is no chance.

Anyway, to divert back from my rant. The Miami Heat season starts Tuesday. Wade will play, but with the loss of Mike Miller until Jan. with a thumb injury, the Heat look to incorporate newly signed veteran Jerry Stackhouse and Eddie House should see some more touches as well.

What about Lebron?

The King's reign in Miami will begin Oct. 29th, against the Orlando Magic. The Heat don't have to worry about a cancellation this game, the Florida Panthers don't share an arena with the Heat.

Personally, I cannot wait to see what happens this season. I'll be watching many games from home, but when the opening jump ball goes up, this 82 game season will be the best ever.
