Twins, Twins, & Twins
Even though I'm not much of a sports fan, the one sport I do enjoy watching is basketball and luckily I have a close friend who has season tickets and she invites me to go with her often. On Thursday night, she was invited by the team to a special "season ticket owners" event at the U.S. Airways arena. She invited me to tag along and I'm glad I did. It was an enjoyable evening featuring many of the players and members of the staff. In our group of fans was a young couple with twin boys and in one of the sessions, we got to meet the Morris twins, Markieff and Marcus who both play for the Suns. When the tot's parents opted for a twin-on-twin photo op, I jumped up there and grabbed a shot too. Do you think those two little guys might be future NBA stars?
Taking that top photo reminded me that I had the above photo in my archives. I took this shot of Dick and Tom Van Arsdale a few months ago and forgot all about it. When I first started attending Phoenix Suns basketball games, these guys were on the court and favorites of mine. When I saw them at a game a few months ago, I asked if I could take a photo and they kindly obliged.
So as you can see, the Phoenix Suns have a history of twins on the team!
