So my buddy is getting married in june and his finance is dead set against a traditional bachelors party. She refused to let him have any strippers and threaten to call the wedding off if she got any hint at any naked women in her mans presence. I spent a good hour trying to convince her other wise but I really believe she will cancel the wedding over it. So instead of 1 big bash we are having a couple guys night out kinda things. The first of which was a basketball game on friday. My buddy's friend's girlfriend works for the wizards and she was nice enough to get us front row tickets to the game. I love her, I just met her but I already love her, anyone that gets me front row for free has a special place in my heart. Plus her boyfriend looks, sounds and acts just like Will Ferrell so he kept us entertained.
Here is a pic of the court from my seat, we were right behind the TV/Camera people:
This was by far the best experience at a basketball game I have ever had. For those people who say sitting that close is not worth it are damn lairs. I was close enough to make out the player tattoos and actually hear them arguing with the refs. One of the players on the bench had a bracelet that blinded me and A waitress came around and got out drink orders so I didn't have to miss any of the game. They gave us free peanut butter and white chocolate popcorn and even brought us a printed sheet of halftime stats. Plus we got free programs, I've never felt more special at a sporting event. There was a separate bar for us lucky folks who had passes and I even got a free chiptole burrito. Granted they gave out burritos to everyone, it was a free thing like when they throw the shirts in the stands. When they first came out with this tray of silver bullets I was a lil scared that some poor kid would get hit up side his head with a burrito I mean those things ARE heavy. Anyway I got a burrito, took 1 bite and threw it out, It has sour cream in it and it occurred to me that I had no idea where it came from.
To top it all off My buddy Moe called me while I was at the game and it went something like this:
Moe: Big Dave, I see you at the game all front row and shit
Me: ha ha ha
Moe: You not even watching the game you texting on your phone
Me: I was trying to make sure my pictures came out, I'll hit you later (I couldn't really hear him over the noise)
I didn't even tell him I was going to the game, dude actually saw me on TV well enough to know for a fact it was me and called. After that I realized I was sitting like 10 feet from Suge Knight Dude is unmistakable he was just chillin so I didn't want to bother him and ask for a pic. I should mention that I was there with 2 white guys and an asian guy so as I was telling them "Hey that's Suge Knight" they all kinda answered with a "who?" So then I proceed to tell the story of Suge holding Vanilla Ice over the balcony window. They seemed to enjoy it. After the Game we hit the restaurant connected to the stadium and got some more beers. So as we sat there chatting it up, here comes Suge with like 4 cheerleaders... It must be nice to be famous.
I have a new goal in life to get season tickets in the front row to see the wizards. I can't go back to sitting the stands like regular folks. Maybe I'll just try and marry someone who works for the wizards, yeah that would be cheaper.. lol
