Random Topic Tuesday

Today's topic: date night

Okay, this is the laziest topic decision ever. Last night Matt and I went on a date though so that's the first thing that came to mind to blog about. So here it is.

 I hate sports. Hate playing them, hate watching them, hate even hearing about them. But I found I can be bought. Back in October Matt won some tickets to a professional basketball game. Even though I am not a fan and the game was months away, I was excited to go. I knew we'd have a baby by then and quality time would be very limited. So last night we left the babe with Matt's parents and hopped on the metro.

I expected to have mediocre seats but we were three rows back, courtside, and that qualified us as "VIP" so we got free food, beer and access to a mini "club" inside the stadium. The seats were extremely close together though, worse than at the movies. Every time I went to get a drink or use the bathroom my ass grinded against some strangers groin but I guess I've been through more awkward occurrences. It was pretty cool being so close to the players and getting special treatment. Also, the back of our heads appeared on TV, so I'm pretty sure that legally makes us famous by today's standards.

We headed out when there was five minutes left, and I don't know what the final score was but I know Washington definitely lost. Even though our local team sucks and I'm not into sports, it was the experience and time with my husband that made it fun. (The free booze didn't hurt either.)

So, what did you do for your most recent date?

I will watch anything if it's VIP with free food/drinks, ha! That sounds fun!

Sadly I cannot remember our last date night! Yikes we need to plan one soon.

Hahaaa, I have a request... Next Tuesday's topic should be about all the "other awkward occurrences" you've had! Lol... I laughed out loud at the ass grinding against some strangers groin thing. See... I really need to get out more! The (booze) game sounded like a fabulous time for you love birds!

P/S OMGosh. Seriously made my heart happy to see my lil ole bloggy button on YOUR sidebar. Super honored mama! Thanks

not a fan of sports either, but I love going to games. We usually go to hockey games here. It's always a fun date. But getting VIP treatment sounds awesome!

So, I love sports... well mainly football but any professional game is alright by me, especially with free food and drinks!

I'm also not a sports fan, although that does sound kind of fun...aside from being so close with a bunch of strangers, that is. Awkward! o.O

Ha, sounds like quite the experience! I can take the occasional sporting event, but I'm not that into it either. Our last date was a movie - at 5:00 on a Friday!! :)

I can't stand televised sports, but I love watching basketball in person. I haven't been to a game since college but would love to go, your night, even with the close seats, sounds fun. Our most recent date was getting cheap tacos with friends. It was so fun because my husband made us laugh so hard all night long.

That sounded fun. Good seats, free food, quality time. Sign me up.
Oh and I like basketball so this would be amazing especially the court side seats
