The Phoenix Suns


One dimension of entertainment that I haven’t addressed on this blog is sports. I will be honest, I am not a huge sports fan. I can think of only three times that I sat huddled in the frigid bleachers to watch a football game. I’ve done a little better with professional baseball. I have experienced the New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, and both the Chicago White Sox and the beloved Chicago Cubs. And, of course I’ve attended a few Phoenix Diamondback games most memorably a winning World Series game.
However, when it comes to sports, my all time favorite is professional basketball. I am fortunate that I have a very close friend who has had season tickets for the Phoenix Suns for more years than I care to mention here. I am doubly fortunate when she invites me to attend with her. That is exactly what she did last night and I immediately said yes. Unfortunately, the Suns didn’t win last night but, as the saying goes, it’s not always about winning or losing. Sometimes it’s just a good time.
My photo isn't the best but, you can see Steve Nash in the foreground taking a shot and that is Shaquille O'Neal the big guy in the center making his way toward Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets.

I must confess I am not a great sports fan, although when I have seen American basketball players perform, it is truly exhilerating

I think the best part is having a friend who gets the tickets.

Not a bad shot for no flash, hand held and everyone moving!

I don't watch pro sports but I have to point out that Steve Nash is a BC boy.

We Canadians are shameless braggarts.

I think it's a good shot - I showed a concert shot a few days ago, with much less movement than there would have been here, and this is much clearer!

This is a great action shot!

A well captured image despite the moving subjects!

I also liked the previous picture "Desert Chalet"

Do have a good weekend!

Cheers
