As it turns out...our friends Dad has some pretty fabulous seats to the Suns games, and Jordan was the lucky recipient of four tickets for that nights game. Would we like to come along?
What you may not know about moi is....I was a rabid, out of control, crazy Suns basketball fan for a long time. It all started with Sir charles. Oh how I love me some Charles Barkley. He awakened my basketball love. The days of Dan Marjele, Dannie Ainge, Kevin Johnson, etc. Anyway, I even had a freaking shrine to them that I put up in every new apartment on my mission. It was a little ridiculous, I will admit. ANYWAY....as the years have passed and I got consumed with other things in life, I just haven't paid as much attention. But, girl still loves basketball.
So, Jordan and Kaitlynn came and picked us up that evening and off we went for an utterly delightful, scream filled, laughing, FUN night.
There is nothing like the feel of the energy of a sports crowd. It was so fun to walk through the arena and get to our seats. Especially fun to get to our seats, because ummmm, they were UH-MAY-ZING!
We sat THIRD row, right behind the hoop, right next to the visitor tunnell. And we were playing the Spurs. When I pointed out Tony Parker and told Jere he was Eva Longorias husband, that was like Christmas for him. Jer loves him some Desperate Housewives. hahaha For me, the fact that I could see Grant Hill so up close and personally he practically asked me out, total DREAM! I have loved him since, get this, 1994 when he joined the league. HOW is he still playing? He's just adorable!
So yeah, there we were:
I even put my glasses on, since I didn't want to miss a thing.
And my face looks remarkably clear. I name this picture a success.
I don't even know how to describe how DIFFERENT it is seeing a game from that perspective.
Happy halftime ya weenies!
Jordan even high fived some players.
He's down like that.
I really, REALLY love this picture. What is happening here?
These are our cute friends that let us stay with them in Vegas.
We're so happy to have them back here. And NOT just because they took us to a Suns game for free.
Oh hi Steve. What's that?
You love me too?
Seriously, close enough to see his pores.
And really, he is so amazing!
I'm sort of proud of this shot. Total action shot and all.
Not to mention...MONEY shot of my boyfriend Grant!
Ol' Nashy nearly won the game single handedly.
Sadly....we lost, by 2 points.
Unsadly...it was an intense and super fun game!
Yep, practically on the court.
Too bad I don't have pics of the redonkulous "costumes" the Suns
hookers Dancers were wearing.
Jere kept asking..."is it a prerequisite for them to make porn faces?"
Apparently, yes, yes it is!
So, what I'm trying to say is:
SUNS game + fun friends = AWESOME!
Thanks again guys for one unforgetable evening.
