Blog post ideas from an NBA game


We took the kids to a Bobcats game tonight.  We actually won the tickets at another game a few weeks ago.  The seats were supposed to be in the upper level, but hey they were free.  When we got there, we found out they were lower level, 10th row from the floor, right behind the Bobcats bench.  Sweet!  With new owner Michael Jordan sitting on the end of the bench!

So I'm sitting there, taking it all in.  I admit I'm not a big NBA fan.  I'd much rather watch a pro baseball game or even football.  And would always rather watch a college game of any kind.  

Two and a half hours later there are all kinds of blog post topics running around in my head.  Here's some insight into my mind.

--The Lady Cats.  From the spandex to the knee-high boots.  To the not so great dancing.  And I know good dancing.  I've seen Making the Team.  These girls are not DCC material. 

--A grown man (a father, no less) who took a T-shirt out of my daughter's hands. (Oh yes he did.  Holdmeback. HOLD ME BACK.)

--People watching vs. Game watching (guess what I did)

--How excited my kids get over a basketball game.  Very into it!  Learning the players names and asking questions. So fun.

--So cotton candy.  How can they charge $4 for basically sugar and air?

--What is it about St. Patrick's Day that can make an otherwise sane and sober 20-something woman break out the green short shorts, skin-tight tank top, green and white striped knee socks, some green Mardi Gras beads, and a rub-on shamrock tattoo and go out IN PUBLIC? 

--Michael Jordan: How do you look the exact same as when you played at UNC? How?

--Beer in cups should have lids.  That way it wouldn't get spilled on my shoes.  Is it the 5 beers they had before they walked to their seat with the 6th one, overflowing and spilling on everyone they pass?  Or are all beer drinkers just clumsy and inconsiderate?  I don't walk around with my Coke sloshing out all over the floor and whoever happens to be in my path.  Just wondering.  Maybe a lid would help.  Or a sippy cup. 

Bobcats won by the way.  I do know that.  Beat Oklahoma City Thunder 100-92.  Who even knew OKC had a team?

Ok, you know I would have SO been people watching with you! I wouldn't have had a clue what was going on with the game, but I would have known what Michael Jordan was doing and would have for sure noticed the St. Patty's Day attire. Hahaha!

So glad y'all had a great time!!

I'm liking the sippy cup idea! How about you walking around with a Coors Sippy Cup!?!?! You are a genius! Oh, and bless the St. Patty's Day girl.. just bless it. Glad you got cool seats and had fun! :)

I laughed the whole time i read this. Genius! As for the whole beer thing. You seem to get more for your buck than with a Coke. The beer they fill until it drips over the sides... sloshing all over people like us who don't care to have that smell consume them for the next 2 hours. But with a soda... you get a cup full of ice and 6... maybe 7 sips of drink. Why is this?

What an AWESOME post!! I enjoyed every word!!! Thanks for sharing your fun night! I so wish I could have been there with you. Or would we have gotten into trouble?!? I mean, really with Michael Jordan, a St. Patty's Day costume, a greedy t-shirt person, AND a beer might not have been a good idea for us to be together!!!
