One day Cyan said she couldn’t be on the basketball team because she’s a gell. So I started showing her YouTube videos of various women’s basketball teams. We had been trying to get tickets to a Lobos basketball game all season, but ya know, you snooze, you lose, and then the only thing available are club level seats at a hundo each.
And then we had some divine intervention. Free tickets to a Lady Lobos game! In a suite.
I hadn’t been to the Club Level since the Pit was remodeled. It’s super que fancy!
The Pit has always been a great place to watch a game.
It was Senior Night.
The suite was rather empty so we had the entire first row to ourselves. And all of the popcorn Cyan could eat. Along with nachos, tacos and cookies.
Newsflash! You can drink up there. Blue Moon and a slice.
The Lady Lobos won pretty handily.
And we had fun!
I could sure get used to the suite life.
Thank you Anderson Graduate Business Students and the UNM Foundation!
And thank you seniors! There was one other player who is graduating, she was injured and unfortunately I didn’t catch her name. But the team seems very close knit so that is cool to see.
Allan worked very hard to find leftover foam fingers since that was the one perk that the suite didn’t have.
The next night we went over to Uncle Levi’s to watch the Lobo men. They lost, but we still had fun.
Especially this little party animal.
March Madness ends for us today with UNM and NMSU out of the dance. But I’m very happy we were able to show Cy that gells can play basketball if they want. And if all else fails, shake your butt Lobos.
