High Rollaz

Collin's work took us to the Utah Jazz game on Thursday, their season opener against the Houston Rockets and it was crazy fun! We had a really nice dinner at the arena in this underground banquet room called "The 100 Club" where they treated us like VIP's...tons of food, t-shirts, gift baskets, and more food.


At half-time they let us go out on the court to "high-5" the Jazz player as they came back from their locker room. Collin, of course, took the opportunity to try to pump up the crowd. Let's hope the pics of him with his shirt off don't pop up online somewhere, and if you have them, email me for your payment....: )

Collin saw 7'6" Yao Ming shooting around and decided to join him.

Here, my darling hubby is trying to give Matt Harpring a fist...of which we was totally denied.

I was taking some photos of the other couples in our group when these 2 guys jumped from out of nowhere...Russ, on the right, is my brother-in-law, and his buddy Jace decided to be Time-Out Ball Thrower Guys!
Thurl Bailey, ex-NBA ball player turned Gospel Singer/Alkaline Water Activist...is that Old Spice Mountain Mist deodarant I smell?

When we were walking back from the half-time gig, retired Jazz player, Jeff Hornacek walked by for a quick photo op.
Collin, telling him how he grew up in Arizona and watched every Suns game in the 90's when Hornacek played down there...and Hornacek pretending that he cares...
GO JAZZ!!!

Mike is going to be so jealous when he reads this post. While we were trying to make out the game through the fuzz on our TV (we never hooked up our cable because we didn't think we'd be here as long as we have been) Mike turned to me and told me how much he wished he was at the game in person. Way to make him feel bad...just kidding. :) Looks like you had a blast!

Looks like you all had a great time. What kind of camera do you use? All of your pics have the best color and are amazing.

Ohhhh! I miss Jazz games and the VIP treatment- I used to manage a Subway sandwiches when I lived there and the owners had season tickets and VIP everything and would let Chad and I go all the time. Sitting in the nosebleeds at a Trailblazer game here in Portland while all the drunk fans cuss at the players just isn't the same! Great pics with all the celebs by the way!

Love the pictures of Collin pumping up the crowd!!Sounds like you guys had a blast. I might actually like a basketball game with access to all those goodies!

Matt said...

Horny for 3! Collin, I could easily see you replacing the great Craig Sager.
