Today I am going to do something a little different, and linking up the Elle over at Elle Sees (if you haven’t checked out her blog you are missing out on some great makeup tips) for her The Story Behind the Pic monthly linkup. You can see prior Story Behind the Pics here.
That Time I Eneded Up on the Jumbo Tron
This was a pic I shared way back.
Jeremy took this pic of me at a Dallas Maverick game with the prize pack I won including tickets to a future game. How did I win a prize pack you ask? My friend was working for the Dallas Mavericks at the time, and had hooked me up to come to that game. When Jeremy and I got to our seats that night we were just hanging out waiting for game to start when a guy from the Mavericks came up to Jeremy. He asked Jeremy if he would be interested in participating in a one of the games they do in between quarters. It was going to be a form of Jeopardy based on Dallas Mavericks trivia. Jeremy looked at me and told the guy that I was actually better at Mavs trivia. The guy looked at me and asked if I would play then. Told him sure. The he said he told me he would come get me toward end of first quarter.
This meant I was going to be one of those people you see on the jumbo tron. I have been to tons of games, and this has never happened. When he came back he took me down to one of the tunnels to wait to play the game. That is when I started to get really nervous. He introduced me to the guy I would be playing against, and told us they had changed and it was going to be a Wheel of Fortune type game. Luckily they had us stand at a spot in the stands and didn’t make us stand center court. Jeremy caught the game on video from his seat. You can see the video below, and sorry for the thick country accent.
That is right I won by a shut out. Was pretty nervous the whole time. Just glad I was able to spit the answers out. In the words of my favorite player Dirk. Shut her down let’s go home!
Want to know what I won in my prize pack? I won 2 tickets to a future Maverick Game, a NBA All State Game t-shirt, and $100 Academy Sport Gift Card.
Even thought I was extremely nervous it was a fun and crazy experience. What do you do to calm down when you get nervous?
Hope your having a great start to the week.
