When I was a kid, my mom used to take my sister and I to basketball games. We grew up in Utah, and would go to the Salt Palace to watch the Utah Jazz play. Back then, tickets cost something like $5 and the Jazz never won.
I adored going to basketball games. Live basketball is so exciting. I don’t care to watch basketball on TV, but when it’s on a court in front of me, it’s more fun than I can describe.
The only sport that I can watch on TV is football, which is exciting no matter how you watch it. Alex and I used to have season tickets to the Oakland Raiders. (Raaaaaaiiiiiiddddderrrrrs!) Our seats were on the 50-yard line right over the players’ tunnel. Prior to going to those games, I had no interest in football. But I quickly learned, oh dear lord, that game is fun to watch.
Although, come to think of it, the Raiders never win anymore either.
Head on over to things. and stuff. to see the story of my family’s trip to a WNBA game. It’s basically a Stimeyland post, but we got tickets for free, so I can’t write about it here. (Have y’all noticed I carry ads now? I hope they don’t offend.)
