Friday Night Date Night...... at the basketball....

Last night Garry and I went out - yes, this was the second Friday night in a row! Thank you Susan for minding the kids. This week we were off to experience my first NBA basketball experience with fabulous seats, centre court, in row eleven to watch the Denver Nuggets try to win and climb back into the series. The Nuggets already lost the first two games to the infamous LA Lakers.

I was looking forward to watching the very famous Coby Bryant, and was hoping he would have a bad night. He looked amazing during warm up, and kept dropping in way too many three pointers for my liking. It was super cool to be so close to such an awesome athlete.

The game was a sell out, and at first I was overwhelmed with the amount of people entering the stadium - it felt more like a rock concert than a game. The crowd was great and desperate for a win on home soil. The Lakers scored the first points - but that was the only time they hit the lead all game. Our Nuggets star, Ty Lawson scored 25 points and the Nuggets raced to an early 24-point lead on their way to a 99-84 victory.

I loved every part of the game, all the hype, entertainment between quarters, while Garry admired the cheer girls. The mascot was especially good fun, and a surprisingly good dancer when he wasn't running around like a manic or crowd surfing.

It was a great feeling to watch the Nuggets win on home soil. For highlights of the game, and to hear the noise of the crowd, check out the you tube video link on the right.
