Thunder Up!

While we were in Okc for Christmas we were lucky enough to get to go to the Thunder vs Mavs game with my parents! I can't tell you how much I miss this. I have never been a person who is a die hard fan of a team but now I get it.......I love this team. I feel like the players are family and when I was at the game it was like being home.
 There is a new restaurant open in the arena that Mom got us reservations for before the game and it was so good!! And yes, it is that popular that you need a reso! It was nice already being inside the arena but relaxing with a good meal before the game instead of hotdogs!
 Since the Thunder was the Okc Thunder I have been at every season opener and many many games every season as well as cheering them on in the NBA finals.....I was spoiled! Being back was so much fun, I love that the people around my parents seats know us, I love that the usher for their section knows us.....it is like family.
 For me this arena AKA The Chesapeake Arena holds a special place in my heart. This place will always hold a spot in my memories ....... On this "floor" over the years when I danced for the NBA and the AFL I have performed over 50 times. Countless dances, performances, practices and try-outs happened here. I know the tunnels under the stadium by heart, I know the feeling of excitement before a game and I know what it feels like to perform in front of 18,000+ fans!
 In this stadium on Honeybee night 2007 I was given the MC microphone by Rob the Hornets MC and asked to do the 4th quarter introduction! It was amazing...I remember just part of what I said "Let's make some noise"!!!! This building holds so many memories for me and it is bittersweet being back at a game.

Now, this video is not good quality......it is from someones phone but I had to share it with you. Trust me I have searched the web like a crazy person looking for a better copy of this video! This is this years Thunder Pre-game video and it truly sums up in a nice package what I love about Oklahoma. Photo montages have a way of getting to me every time but the love in this video truly expresses the love I have and so many more have for this team and our state.



Sorry if this was silly but that is how I feel, places take on a different emotion after moving away.
