Ok, so maybe the Clippers didn't win tonight, but that sure didn't stop Jason and I from having the time of our lives at tonight's game! Jason is such a champ for driving all the way down from Salt Lake for our second date. I definitely felt extremely important to him for making such a sacrifice to be here for date number two. With that in mind, I knew I had to plan something extra amazing to show my appreciation!
Knowing what a basketball fanatic Jason is, I did my homework and realized one of my favorite teams, the LA Clippers, had a pre-season game at the Staples Center in LA against the Denver Nuggets. Immediately my thoughts turned to my good friend Mike, the announcer for the Clippers, to see what kind of connections could be provided. Mike definitely hooked us up with some awesome seats adjacent to the players tunnel where we got to high five each of the players on their way into the locker room. And as if that wasn't cool enough, he even got us Friends & Family Passes to hang out "backstage." We loved getting the celebrity treatment.
I'm a big sports enthusiast myself, so being at the game got me all kinds of excited! And when I'm excited, the loud, obnoxious basketball fan inside me comes out! I swear, every time Kaman hit that 3 pointer and Griffin rocked the slam dunk, I was on my feet cheering! Hopefully I didn't scream Jason's ear off too much. (I probably did...but I just can't help it!) Unfortunately my yelling and screaming didn't do much to change the score though. We finished off the night just 2 baskets short of a win. Dang it! Regardless, I thought it was a great game.
After it all ended we stopped by the announcer's table to thank Mike for the sweet hook-ups. I introduced him to my date and after just 5 minutes he told me "I think this guy could be it!" Thanks Mike! In the next 24 hours that I have to decide, I'll be sure to weigh your opinion heavily. You never know...
