I've ever been a huge sports guru. My dad made us do yardwork and read. He thought sports were a waste of time if you weren't getting straight A's. We spend our Sundays making cookies....not watching football. Thus, if I am ever in a trivia competition and the sports category comes up -- I am DOOMED. I mean, until a few years ago, I thought Michael Jordan was just the actor who played in Space Jam. I know NOTHING about sports. So, sitting in one of the most coveted seats in the stadium was a little overwhelming. I felt unworthy. Almost like a poser. But then I reminded myself that one thing I am an expert on is having a good time and therefore any situation that allows that, I am in whole heartedly.
HOWEVER ---- I made one great leap forward in my attempt to be connected with the sports world. I picked my favorite jazz player....RAJA BELL. I now know he was born in the Virgin Islands, is 6'5" and his wife had a C-section while delivering their first child. I like that he is known for 3-pointers because those are my favorite moments in basketball.
All in all, it was great. Great food, great game, great company. Go Jazz!
