HUBS and I went to the Nuggets game last Friday. Big happy/pouty face.
At first I was hung-over from all the excitement of the game and now, a state of mourning because my Nuggets lost (sad face) the playoffs to the dumb purple team from SoCal (Lakers - bad, bad word). Anyhow, HUBS and I went to the game last Friday. We have been to numerous Nuggets games, but never have we had seventh row seats at a playoff game - It was so EXCITING!!! When you are that close to the court, you can't help but cheer like a crazed lunatic!
A friend-of-a-friend hooked us up with awesome seats and a post game pass. We had a fun night of cheering our team on and booing #24 of the opposite team (he is not liked in these parts). We were so close!! It was bittersweet, but I am still proud of our team - Go Nuggies!
Landon loves basketball and the Nuggets! He tells me he's Bird Man every time we play basketball so it was fate that I ended up with a signed shoe from Mr. Chris Anderson a.k.a Bird Man!!!! The Post Game pass allowed us to hang (with a group of others), outside the locker-rooms and see the Boys come out as they left the 2009 B-Ball Season. Talk about exciting!!!
We saw a handful of b-ball players, but only Bird Man tickled my fancy. He was so generous; signing autographs and taking pictures until everyone had an autograph or picture - A genuine fella! You hear so many stories of professional athletes being idiots and rude, but he was perfect - definitely a Denver Fan favorite and our Family favorite.
HUBS also got to meet JR Smith, he was way cool too! We "ooed-ahhed over Chauncy Billips and seen a couple other players! The players wives also waited patiently for their Hubbies so I got to see Lala - Carmello's wife and she was really nice. Much prettier in person. We also seen a couple Laker (bad word) players and their Coach, but I turned a blind eye because I don't like that team and I could careless if Phil Jackson stood at arms reach - Who cares!!!!
I LOVE THE NUGGETS! The West better watch out next year for this fiery team!
