Dallas Mavericks Home Game Opener

Without fail, each year right around this time I start getting really irritated with my football season, and welcome basketball back with ridiculous, open-armed excitement. College ball tips off in early November, and the NBA is freshly underway. In fact, last night I got to attend the first Mavs home game of the season. We picked a great one to go to, because not only did the Mavs route Utah, but it was free t-shirt night. People go bonkers over free t-shirts, and I am no exception.

And look, CB even let me put a picture on the blog! Errr...sorta. He's real though, see! There is a neck and a hand visible in this photo! Baby steps people... tiny, itty bitty, newborn baby, just learnin' shapes and colors baby steps.

You remember when you went on Summer break in 10th grade, and came back for your junior year and the boys all got hot. Yeah, well the Mavs must be juniors because they got hot. Chandler Parsons... holla at yo girl. I'll be your Dallas "tour guide." Yeahhhhh that's what we'll call it, your "tour guide"...

Ok, but Chandler... seriously doe...

Here is a little tune I put together for you guys to celebrate the gloriousness of basketball season! Yes, gloriousness is a word. Sorry, I'm not a poet and I know it. Just follow along and humor me! 

Sing to the good old fashion tune: It's the most wonderful time of the year.

It's the most wonderful time of the year
When the centers start jumping
And mascots start yelling
get up and CHEER!
It's the most wonderful time of the year

It's the hap-happiest season of all
With those technical foulings
And pissed off bad feelings
When your starters begin to show fear
It's the hap-happiest season of all

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be wins for toasting
referees for roasting
And chanting, "Go team go!"

There'll be scary foul shooting
and tales of the glories
of championships long, long ago
It's the most wonderful time of the year

It's the hap-happiest season of all
There will be much liquor flowing
and hearts will start failing
when upsets are near
It's the hap-happiest season of all!

Hah.... I'm no T. Swift, that is for sure.

A big happy welcome to the beginning of basketball season!

And Happy Halloween! We are heading to a Halloween party on Saturday (not on actual Halloween, weird I know) and to say I'm excited about my costume is a mega understatement! I'll of course post it on insta the second I'm done getting ready. Because, if you don't Instagram your Halloween costume, did Halloween really happen?

Anyone care to make any guesses on what my costume is???

  1. okay. so I've definitely been in love with Dirk since he did the "what day is it? GAMEDAY!" commercial....

  2. you are weird but I love ya. bahaha this is great.

  3. Hahaha I love it. You are so funny and silly and clever and precious.


  5. I used to go to Jazz games all the time when I lived in Utah. SO MUCH FUN. I haven't been to an NBA game since moving back to Cali. Chris says he's going to get me back into basketball...I guess we'll see...

  6. I'm not a basketball fan at all (Yet another reason I need to leave Kentucky) but I do love your song. I'm still very much in football mode.

  7. So adorable! lol I was excited the Spurs played the other night. Except all the good players are getting old. It is just a matter of time :( Happy Halloween!!

  8. I read your whole song and now I have Christmas tunes stuck in my head! Chris has already started stalking StubHub for Mavs tickets. I'm sure I'll end up at the Mavs vs Pelicans game!

  9. Gah now I want ALL THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC! I thought your song was great.

  10. You'll have to get in line because I've loved Chandler Parsons since his Florida Gator days! He was obviously a little more baby-faced, then, but I saw the potential. My boyfriend is a huge Spurs fan, so he was all too excited to let me know that Chan Chan bricked what would be the game winning shot on Tuesday

  11. Come on, Chalupa Batman. I haven't been this excited for the reveal of someone since season 1 of How I Met Your Mother. I'm heading to the Pacers/Grizzlies game tonight, so I get the welcome back basketball love.

  12. Your too cute. Happy Halloween and have a great weekend

  13. This link-up came at the perfect time! I just went to an Orlando Magic game for the first time in forever! I think I got the sports bug ;)

  14. You are ridiculously pretty in pictures. Probably in real life too. Kinda makes me wanna vom. Just kidding - except about the pretty part ;) Also I love this Chalupa Batman business. I kinda want him to stay a mystery forever!

  15. So jealous that you got to go to the game. I am so excited to be back in Mavs land! Also, I love you but if I get to Chandler Parsons first then well, GAME ON!
