NBA Finals

It's hard for me to believe that this is a topic I'm blogging about--it's definitely not something I ever thought I would care too much about.  But I do and it's been fun.

This year the OKC Thunder have made it to the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.  We've been very consistant in watching all of the play-off games.  As the Thunder play in the Chesapeake Arena and Troy works at Chesapeake in order to get tickets to a game Troy had to enter a lottery for each game at work.  He did get tickets for the 5th game in the first round but there wasn't a 5th game because the Thunder won in a sweep (no complaints).  

So he's really been hoping to get tickets and as of last Thursday morning he had not won the lottery again.  BUT over lunch on Thursday he got an email saying he could have last minute tickets to the game if he replied within an hour.  He called me and pretty much yelled at the top of his lungs that we got tickets to that night's game.  We were both pretty excited!  Free tickets to an NBA finals game--YES PLEASE!!!  (We only had to pay the tax on the tickets.  Thank you Chesapeake!)

Fortunately Grandma and Grandpa agreed to watch the kiddos last minute for us.  Another big thank you!  We waited until the last minute to leave the house (trying to make it as easy as possible for Hannah and I) and it worked out great because we avoided most of the traffic.  We found a parking spot without any problems, walked about 10 minutes to the arena, went in and found our seats (they were pretty great seats).  We were pleasantly surprised when Sara Evans sang the National Anthem (she sings our song).  And then the game got underway.  Unfortunately the Thunder wasn't able to pull out a win but we still had a good time.  As of this post, the Thunder are down in the series 1-3.  They have to win tonight to keep it going and bring the games back to OKC.  Thunder Up!

This is Kevin Durant shooting a free throw and LeBron James is #6.
