Knicks versus Trailblazers

Portland Trailblazers logo Last night, two friends, J and I went to see the Portland Trailblazers beat the Knicks (79-101). One sweet perk of my executive assistant job is that I occasionally get to use my boss’ season tickets to see the Blazers. I am much more of a football fan, but I think most sports are really fun live. They are even more fun when you get free seats, and sweet ones at that!

My favorite player is Lopez, so I was really disappointed when he got hurt. I knew I wouldn’t be able to see him last night, and then Aldridge was out too. That was a bummer, but Matthews and Freeland were looking great out there! There are a few shots of Matthews below.

Being a huge animal and mascot freak (and over exuberant in general), I was super excited when Blaze, the “Trail Cat”, came up our row. I embarrassed J by yelling “hi Trail Cat!”. I didn’t realize how loud I was, but the mascot turned around, pointed at me, waved, and blew a kiss. I’m not even ashamed to say that I was super excited.

We sat in section 113, row F, and my seat is 2. This is the view from my seat, if anyone has similar tickets and wants to check it out. I don’t know how those Blazer dancers keep their bodies looking like that, but I will say I am super envious. I’m getting inspired for my new lifestyle (this is what I’m trying to go with instead of diet- seems more likely to work). I will post more about my new life plan soon!
