Go Suns!

Friday, December 7th 2007:

Phoenix Suns vs. Washington Wizards: Brian's first NBA game and my first since 2000. Nothing like my courtside seats during the '99 finals between the Knicks and the Spurs with the "Twin Towers", but it was fun nonetheless, especially to see Steve Nash in action, even if he was just a speck of dust in the distance.

I got tickets super early back in July?, the cheapest of course, so it was funny to see that all the upper level seats were filled, while the lower levels were sprinkled with empty seats. I made sure to wear my team's colors to show where my loyalties lie. Surrounded by fans of the opposing team is nothing new for me...think Yankees hat in Kenmore Square.

Not having eaten dinner beforehand, we indulged ourselves with some pricey eats

Random comment, but during half-time, they had a show where the performers would be dancing and then their clothes would change instantly. They did this several times. Kinda cheesy, but the last change/transformation was pretty cool. I forgot how entertaining some of the breaks were and the competitions they held during them.

Final score, no surprise, Suns 122, Wizards 107
