Good times with Sweet Sweet and I watching basketball at the AAC. Essentially, I convinced / bribed her to go if we ate at El Fenix afterwards. Not a bad trade-off as far as I’m concerned. The game itself was a little disappointing, but it was still fun to see my Red Raiders play.
Sweet Sweet and I.
Quick story, the wind was blowing at 40 to 50 m.p.h. and we were rushing to find the closest ticket window as we didn’t have tickets to the game and I knew that it wasn’t going to be a sell-out, so I felt pretty comfortable walking up and purchasing tickets.
Some incredibly awesome individual walked up to Sweet Sweet and I and asked us if we would like tickets in the upper deck. Me, not wanting to look a gift-horse in the mouth, said hell yes. We find our seats and there is hardly anyone in the upper deck.
We weren’t exactly very close:
Another good mojo moment comes when the ticket attendants tell us that we can go sit in the lower bowl. At this point, I’m dizzy with excitement. First, I get into the game for free and then I’m told that I can sit in the more expensive seats? Merry Christmas to me.
As you can tell, we got quite a bit closer:
Good times with the wife, and dinner was great.
One thought on “Sweet Sweet and I Watching Basketball”
It is good to have you back posting on PDB. This distance between Tyrell, TX and Seymour, MO is pretty far, and the PDB, helps me keep connected to my friend and his life. I was glad to hear Miranda’s health is improving. I understand your fear, and am glad that things are looking up.
While PDB does not give you an opportunity to exercise your need to be a geek, i.e. analysis and statistics, it provides a creative outlet, as well as a memoir. Goodtimes.
Life is pretty good in Missouri. I had a great Christmas, and enjoyed spending it in Missouri. The last several years i have gone to North Carolina to my older sister’s. Anyway, I got to spend some time around my extended family. I love family. Of course, they can be a headache, but I enjoy the sense of community and belonging that you get from being around your family.
Oh, and by the way, my son Henry is the best thing I have ever done. I am one proud father.
Well, we will be praying that Miranda has another successful surgery, and that her recovery is swift. Long live PDB!!
