Earlier this year, Atlantic.Net announced a formal partnership with the Orlando Magic.  Everyone at Atlantic.Net was very excited and proud to be named the Official Server Host of the Orlando Magic and to  protect their data in our world class data center facility.

As you can imagine, all of Orlando is gearing up for the first home game of the Easter Conference Finals. It seems like everywhere you turn around town, you see “Go Magic!” signs and Godzilla sized banners of Hedo Turkoglu, Dwight Howard, and Rashard Lewis adorning the downtown skyscrapers.

As a proud partner of the Orlando Magic, we are often involved in special events with the organization. At one of the recent events, we had the opportunity to hangout and get to know our team during a fun filled night of casino games and shenanigans . Whether we were playing blackjack, roulette, or just rolling the dice, everyone had a great time and the Magic players were nothing short of awesome to hang out with.

Hedo Turkoglu and Mike Wilks were on fire at the roulette table, Jameer Nelson, who was celebrating his birthday, could do no wrong at the black jack table, and Dwight Howard, Superman himself, was cutting up the rug and singing on the dance floor. You just don’t know how funny and humble this group of guys are until you spend some time with them. They are truly Champions on and off the court.
