15+ years ago, my wife used to come to my baseball games after she got off of work. She'd usually show up somewhere around the 3rd or 4th inning. I'd go over between innings and greet her (as any newlywed would greet his wife) and we'd chat for a minute. I had to laugh because inevitably all the negative comments from that side of the bleachers would stop for the rest of the game. Good times.

But I can't imagine wanting my wife or kids to come to one of my basketball games. There is just too much stuff that gets said. I don't know if it's just the changing times, or if basketball fans are just more callous than baseball fans, or perhaps it's the stupid people in large groups effect. But if people knew she was my wife, somebody at some game is going to take it upon him or herself to deliberately say something hurtful to her. Sad times.
