Speaking of Houston, Yao Ming and the Rockets Basketball are one of our natural focus. We may have seen Rockets' games many times on TV, now we enter the Rockets' court -- the Toyota Center, to have a first hand experience what a live game is all about. Nothing beats the intensity of being inside the Rocket's homecourt.

Back to Yao Ming and the Rockets. When Yao first came to Houston, the Rockets were still playing in the Compaq Center. In September of 2003, Toyota Center became the home of Houston Rockets.

Toyota Center is not only for basketball, it is also home of the Houston Aeros, the hockey team. Yes, it is hockey. Since there is some overlap between basketball and hockey seasons, sometimes a hockey game was played the previous night, and you can still feel the icy cold when you play basketball.

Well, watching a live game is different from watching on TV, you may not see it clearly, but you have all the funs around you. That's something you don't have at home alone. When Toyota Center was open, we had a chance to experience and compare at all angles and positions.
