The draft...

I think Blake's new obsession with fantasy basketball (yes honey, it is an obsession- not just a hobby) is borderline comical, but I am glad he fills his spare time with real people in a make believe, dream team sort of setting. See what I mean? Borderline comical.
On a more real note, Blake's company got season tickets to the Suns games and the seats are AMAZING! So Sunday night we went over to the inlaws and divied up the tickets...1/3 of the home games we get to go to. So we layed out all of the home games...


Let the strategy begin...let's start the draft!!


We got some awesome games to see this season so this will be a real treat to be out of the house a few nights a month enjoying some basketball with Blake!!


The team I am most excited to see live will be Suns vs. Spurs on Jan 29, 2009!! If anybody knows me, you'd know my complete DISPISE for the Spurs. No, I don't hate them because they're good (just in case you're wondering...) I hate them because they are DIRTY! Their whole roster (Tony Parker is the exception) is filled with total chucks...for example...


Manu Ginobili- the BIGGEST faker and flopper ever brought to the NBA.



Then there is Tim Duncan (aka...THE BIG FUNDAMENTAL) I can't even look at the guy without wanting to punch him in the face (and believe me- I'm not a violent person). He just stares at everyone with that puppy dog look on his face like- "Who me? I fouled that guy? No way...it couldn't have been me." ---when it was CLEARLY him. See, he gets me crazy.


Then there is Robert Horry (aka...BIG SHOT BOB)... when push comes to shove (literally) you have to watch your back or he'll get cha. When you try to take out Nash you are automatically on my naughty list!


And last, but certainly not least...there is Bruce Bowen...I'm not sure if he has a nickname...but if he did it might be something like "The Nutcracker". That guy seriously defends his opponent no further than one foot away from them. He's the weakest. Seriously, just BACK OFF! There's nothin like seeing dirty ball played live and up close!

What this game will be like =

I am just so grateful for the opportunity to go to the games and for Pops for pulling the trigger and getting tickets!! Muchas Gracias!!



GO SUNS!!

i think you better make a sign to take to the game. something really insulting. that would be awesome.

You are hilarious! I love your sports commentary. I don't think I could even name 5 players for the Jazz. Or any team for that matter. :)
