On to my Wordful Wednesday..... As many of you already know, our Orlando Magic basketball team got their tails handed to them by the LA Lakers in the NBA Finals. We are season ticket holders (we share them with Joe's partners of his company), so we were able to be at alot of the games.....in-season and post-season....nothing was more fun than watching them win the Eastern Conference finals against Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.....especially since the NBA "higher-ups" were doing their best to "make" it be a Lebron vs. Kobe Final.
As with most big sporting events, you will always see some type of celebrity..... A) because they are trying to get noticed or B) because they actually like that team.... either way, it is fun to scan the crowd and "star-gaze". At most of the Magic games we would see Chris Brown & Warrick Dunn...sometimes Rihanna, Serena Williams, Hulk Hogan and John Cena....among others!!!
This past Sunday, we went to Game 5 of he NBA Finals......yea, the game that LA easily won the championship..... and while waiting for our players to head into the locker room and hand out "fist-pumps" (which are always fun), we came across Chris Tucker.....
He was much bigger in person...much more muscular....and very friendly!!!! Wow, a brush with fame.....aren't I lucky....? :)
And just for fun....just to show support for our Orlando Magic....even if they didn't win the Finals..... here are some pics of our favorite players!!!
Coach Stan Van Gundy (with Asst Coach Patrick Ewing behind him)
GO MAGIC.... see you next season!!!!
I'm off to go take care of my sick big boy---- Joe!!! :(
