Smitty’s a hero with a big four zero

3/21/09

 It’s been a while since I’ve been to a Nuggets game and before the game started the Nuggets were on a four game win streak. The Nuggets are H-O-T (29-8) this season and I was hoping the wife and I’s presence wouldn’t interfere with that momentum.

Unfortunately we didn’t get there early enough to see the Nuggets warm-up. We arrived about five minutes into the game.

The star of the show tonight was my favorite Nugget J.R. Smith. Smitty scored an insane 40 points tonight. J.R. was allowed to start the game and seriously took advantage of that opportunity.

I’m glad that Krista, I and 18, 231 others in attendance were able to witness “Smitty’s Basketball School”. It was downright pleasurable watching the Wizzards being subject to “Professor Smith’s” night classes and failing miserably.

Here’s a picture show for you. As always let me know what you think. You don’t have to love basketball to enjoy a good picture.

Intense 3-20-09.jpgSo by now the room is spinning so I had to look away to regain my balance. I looked up and what did I see?
big coors 3-20-09.jpgA big old Coors can. Beware of the useless coupons that this and similar blimps like to drop on your head. You could really get hurt and the coupons are worthless. Tell you what, float a big “Fat Tire” beer bottle up there and maybe I’ll risk injury, but for a Coors (aka Rocky Mountain pisswater), I wouldn’t walk to the fridge.

Save you knees, a free paper isn’t worth an injury either. I tell you what, if those stupid blimps dropped baseballs it would be game on…

look up 3-20-09.jpgBy far the “Best Hat of the Game”. I guess if you can afford a snazzy hat like that, court side seats are chump change.

I’m not sure who this guy was, but he may actually be attending Referee School.

He kept standing up and moving his arms and saying, “safe”. It’s cool, you meet all kinds of people at at Nuggets game and I like baseball.

The Nuggets wave their magic wands and spell out the Wizzards 116-105.

(Go back and read that last sentence, nice huh?  :)

Melo had 20 points and looked like he may have hurt his ankle?? Hope he’s ok.
Nene had 11 points and 2 blocked shots.
