Wordful Wednesday - Brush with Fame & Our Orlando Magic

First and foremost...... my BIG BOYS ARE HOME....yipppppeeee!!! Wow, I sure have missed them and am so glad they are back home to their mama!!!! This coming Sunday, my big boy....my first born will be turning 13..... that is T-H-I-R-T-E-E-N...... CAN.YOU.BELIEVE.IT?

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!!!
Dwight Howard
Coach Stan Van Gundy (with Asst Coach Patrick Ewing behind him)
Rafer Alston
Hedo Turkoglu
GO MAGIC.... see you next season!!!!
I'm off to go take care of my sick big boy---- Joe!!! :(

looks like you had a lot of fun! i lived in central FL for 3 years, but never made it to a Magic game (too busy studying, I guess).

WOW! I'm way jealous! Didn't talk about it much on here but I was GLUED to the game and facebooking all about it!

Yeah, I was one of those that was pulling for the Lebron and Kobe finals, but I was equally satisfied with Superman and want SOOOOOOOOOOO badly for them to put it on Kobe n'em.

OMG so jealous that you got a picture with SMOKEY! Everyone has always compared his looks to my husband. I don't know.

If you wanna pass on some of those finals passes next year HOLLA!

Wow, how fun for you...a picture with Chris Tucker! Sorry your team lost, but glad you enjoyed the game anyway!

Wow...lucky you!!! David and I were driving back from Charleston the night of the game and when we went through Orlando (around 9pm) we could see the blimp and all of the sky lights! It was really really neat!

Glad you had a great time!!!!

I love Chris Tucker!! "You got knocked the f#$% out!!" Chris Brown can jump in a lake, though! He should try fightig Mike Tyson instead of beating up a woman.
