If you are a basketball fan...

...me and my family will be at the Sacramento Kings vs. Portland Trailblazer's game on Friday night. We have FLOOR SEATS right under the basket! This is a once a year treat, and last time we did this, the game was vs. the Phoenix Suns, and I got to toss a ball back to Steve Nash during the pre-game warmup. And one of the Kings players nearly landed in Austin & Tucker's lap as he fell out of bounds right in front of us. I LOVE the intensity of live sports, and it's especially fun when it's this up close and personal. :)

And if you're a music fan, I have a new song that's just captivating to me. It's called "Brighter Than Sunshine" by Aqualung.

P.S. Lest we sound like crazy people who will blow thousands of dollars on a basketball game (I know they exist, but they are not us!) the floor seat tickets belong to Tim's company, and he gets them once or twice a year. Face value of the tickets? $1000 per seat. (I almost choked when I saw that the first time we used them.)

I don't follow basketball, but my husband does, and even I know that tossing a ball to Steve Nash is SO COOL. (I also love the excitement of games regardless of not being a big sports fan...and that's from the cheap seats!)

I know Aqualung, it's an old Jethro Tull song :-p :-p.

Take care and best wishes.

My husband has season tickets for the Hornets...the games are a lot of fun...and I can't really call myself a "sports fan" but I do enjoy going and watching the people at the games! Have fun...

Crap that is A LOT of money!!
I just went to Arco today for the JingleBall tickets, and thought I'd see what the Kings have for Decemeber...only tickets left for the LA and Boston games were the $89 ones...didn't get them ;)

Enjoy the game tomorrow and I hope they win!!
