Last night our season-ticket account manager, who incidentally is da bomb, upgraded our tickets for the Thunder v. Pacers game to COURTSIDE SEATS, just because she is nice! I can't even begin to tell you how excited BJ and I were. You can see exactly how excited Silas was about it too. Do notice the kickin' Kevin Durant jersey that Silas is sporting.
Our exciting evening began with a free dinner at the courtside restaurant, which essentially is a gourmet buffet. Our dinner selections included chicken marsala, beef tenderloin, some fancy fish in a red sauce that I didn't eat because it was reminiscent of the chopping board on which the fish was likely filleted, fresh fruit, salad, delicious dessert, you name it. It.was.awesome. After that it was on to our seats where we got to see warm-ups and then the game up close and personal. Here are some of shots I got of KD to illustrate our proximity to greatness.
We were so close that you could see the rippling muscles, and I could even see the freckles on Nick Collison's arms (my second favorite player). As seen only on TV! Silas also had cameramen in his face three times, and the lovable mascot Rumble came to say hi to Silas as well (although he walked away with shoulders slumped and head down because Silas wouldn't wave at him). The Thunder rolled to a huge victory over the Pacers. Coincidentally we were sitting immediately next to Cathy Keating, who is a former First Lady of Oklahoma.
