Experiencing a sporting event in person provides a different experience for attendees compared to watching it from home. From the stadium food to the crowd's rambunctious energy, spectating a contest from the stands has considerable perks. Another benefit is that you could bump into a celebrity as you take in the action.
Celebrities gracing the sidelines at games are commonplace across sports, and many stars showed up to a number of events last week. Grammy award-winning music producer DJ Khaled went viral for hyping up the crowd during the Miami Heat's Eastern Conference semifinal matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers. He even gave Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra a shoulder rub before taking his seat.
More stars flocked to the sidelines this week to enjoy live sports or show support for their home teams.
