I’m a big sports nut, and this weekend was fun for me. Friday, Melinda and I went to see the “Battle of the Undefeateds” as the 3-0 Dallas Desperados battled the 3-0 Austin Wranglers in a hard fought loss. We bought season tickets after going to the first game against Kansas City and really feel in love with the sport and the atmosphere. The picture is from our seats as the Wranglers kicker missed a field goal wide left. Much to our surprise, a large Austin contingent came up for the game and made a lot of noise for their team.
Today, I braved the 20 degree weather with my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew to go see the US National Soccer team beat Guatemala 4-0. Here’s a picture from a suite at Pizza Hut Park, thanks to my brother Jeff for hooking that up mid-way through the first half. I have to give the players credit as they are not allowed to wear leggings or under armour to cover their legs. Also, it was good to see Eddie Johnson finally get a goal in Pizza Hut Park.
I’m off to finish watching the NBA All-Star game and enjoying seeing Avery Johnson getting his due as head coach of the Western squad. Also, it was great to see Dirk win the 3 point shoot-out. I’m a HUGE Maverick fan so this weekend has been a real thrill for me to watch. Maybe next year we’ll be in Vegas to watch the 2007 game.
