Christi's First Suns Game




So Friday night we head down to Phoenix with Chad and Stacy to see the Suns take on the Jazz. We have to buy tickets on the street. While looking for tickets we see a little FSN booth with Tom Chambers being broadcast. He is the Bair family's long lost cousin. So Christi and Stacy hang around to talk to their kin while Chad and I get the tickets.

We get the tickets for just over double face value. Some street hagglers we turned out to be. So we get in the game and go to our seats. Watch the game and it is great fun until the end when the Suns first loose the lead then loose the game.

On the way home we decide to stop at Applebee's to cash in on half price appetizers. Christi and Stacy break off to go to the bathroom. I feel it appropriate to mention that whenever they are together unsupervised I always fear the worse. They come back laughing their heads off. After a few minutes of trying to get out of them what happened I find out that there was a locked stall that they thought was unoccupied. At first Christi was going to try and crawl under the door, but apparently crawl space was limited. Next, they had the great idea of Christi climbing over door and dropping in (no Pun intended). So they came back laughing hysterically, and I am somewhat convinced that in the end they didn't even go to the bathroom because they were having too much fun, got distracted, and forgot they had too pee.

So, unfortunately for you reader and me the typer, the story doesn't end there. We then pick up Grace, who, since it is about 11:00 and was just awoken, is a zombie and take her to get McDonald's ice cream. Well, the first McDonald's said they didn't have any ice cream. Then the second place told us the McD's stops serving ice cream at 11:00. To that Chad screams, "What kind of sick McDonald's joke is this." So we head back to the Thompson's residence and spot a Tastee Freeze. We go there and get the most amazing chocolate dipped cones ever. At least I did, everyone else got these lame boring vanilla cones and even grace scored a little freebie trial size cone.

THE END


Here are some pics of our most recent adventure. Well, other than packing it our most recent.

I am LAUGHING OUT LOUD at Matt's description of our night together! I am confused as to why you fear the worst when Christi and I get together, Matt...It always ends up being something to laugh about! That was so much fun. Too bad you're leaving and we won't be doing that very often.

One more thing... TC is not a long lost cousin, he VERY closely related!

Leslie said...

The Hatch Family said...

Was TC friendly to you guys? I know he is a cousin, but who is his mom?

Sorry Leslie...GO SUNS!

Patrick said...

Come on, like the Suns would beat the Jazz? Be reasonable!

Matthew said...

I did not want Patrick to see this blog. I haven't heard him crying about the Jazz in so long... That was one memory I thought I had escaped. Too bad no one that reads our blog knows Patrick and will have any idea what I am talking about.

Man you lucky ducks I want to see the suns play! Well that is awesome that you got to see them!

Justin, Allison, and Emily said...

So Matt, were you seats where our family ones use to be :)

Daniel and Nicole Hunter said...

Sounds like a blast! I would LOVE to go to a Suns game! I'm up here in freezing cold Utah surrounded by crazy Jazz fans! Ahhh!

So....Matt didn't like hearing about the never-ending topic of the Jazz from Patrick huh?!? I would have to say, I'm with him on that one! I mean, as soon as the season is over, it's only a few weeks later that Patrick starts up with "...think the Jazz are going to win it this year?" As if I have any clue as to predicting that!!! Matt---You should come visit so he can have someone else with whom to discuss the Jazz!!!!!
