A night of free April 19, 2010

Posted by clintcarter in Family, Oklahoma City, Sports.

Emma won 2 tickets to go see the Oklahoma City Thunder play last week.  It was her first NBA game and my first in OKC.

Our seats were in the nosebleeds, second to last row, yet I was amazed at how well we could see the action.  I wouldn’t hesitate to sit in those seats again, although if we can get closer to the floor we’ll definitely take ’em. 🙂

Emma immediately transformed from sweet 8 year old girl to screaming Thunder fan.  She was energized by the atmosphere and got wrapped up in the game.  It was a playoff environment.  The crowd was really into the game which was a blast.

The other great thing about the night was that we kept getting stuff for free.  First the tickets, then thundersticks, a t-shirt, and finally the concession lady gave us free cotton-candy.  We had a blast together and can’t wait to go again!

On a side note, I’ve been trying to become a Thunder fan over the past year.  It’s hard to switch 20 years of allegiance to the Dallas Mavericks over night.  I’m glad that they won’t meet during the playoffs.  Not sure I’m ready to make that decision.
