Hockey is a wonderful sport to watch live. It's even better to watch up close. And there's no better or cheaper place to do both than at a Houston Aeros game at Toyota Center. You can sit center ice, just a few rows back, for $31 — the same seats the Rockets will charge you a couple of hundred dollars for. The cheap seats, in the lower bowl, go for just $13. The sport is fast, and the hits are brutal. The team's cheerleaders greet you as you enter, then walk through the stands during the game. There are lots of fan contests. The Houston Aeros provide the best bang for the sports buck in the city. No contest.
