One shining moment. That’s what we were going to see on Monday night. Would UNC win another banner? Or would Gonzaga cement themselves in the annals of history as the little mid major that could? The year before, Villanova had defeated UNC in one of the classic national championship games- buzzer beater to down Goliath. We were hoping for an equally exciting and memorable experience here!
As I mentioned in my post about the opening day game, we did Chase field backwards. Game first, stadium tour second. Normally, I wouldn’t want to do it this way, but I’m still glad we did the tour, because it was one of the more informative that we’ve been to. First, you walk in, and there’s this atrium area with some cool art type images all around. I’m normally not into that sort of thing, but it was a nice touch- all of it was of local stuff, which was cool.
Game 2 of our Sunday doubleheader was another Suns game. We weren’t sure initially whether we wanted to go to two Suns games- they weren’t very good and we figured we could find something else to do with our time there. But we had such a great time on Thursday that we decided to do it. This time, Joel’s friend Riley joined us, and they were playing the Rockets, who had MVP candidate James Harden balling out for them. We were excited for what we thought would be another rousing game!
Just a couple of sports fans touring the world, one stadium at a time.
