Today feels HOT! It’s South Texas y’all so you already know the drill, let’s go and enjoy the day. I have a few choices. 1) Visit downtown and take a long walk along the bayfront and enjoy the clear view across the Gulf, from the sea wall on a day like today, we can see clear across to Padre Island. 2) Make it a beach day and lay in the sun and people watch, I just love to see how others go about their day, hear them laughing and carrying on, see the colors of all the different outfits, hear all the different genres of music blaring from somebody’s trunk. 3) Stay in doors in the cold AC, perhaps enjoy a movie, surf the web or even better, blog.
All of these choices are great I could even do a bit of all three, but what I am most excited about today is what is happening tonight. My favorite team, the San Antonio Spurs, will go up against them O.K.C Thunder folk! My dad and I have our bonding time watching THE best NBA team hard at work. Win or lose, we support and cheer for them 100%
We love the tv on loud, the drinks ice-cold, gotta have our spurs attire, be it a cap or shirt, and of course we can’t have a game without trash talking those damn announcers who have nothing good to say about the Spurs. Personally I love the fact that they are more low-key, coach Pop is the man with the plan, I prefer the fact that not one of the players has a big head or is a media hog, it makes it more approachable and it even feels like we are a part of some big secret that not everyone is aware of. They definitely show love for the fans and the community and I find that one of a kind.
No matter who everyone cheers for, it is great to watch the Spurs organization at work. I feel proud to be a fan of some very caring, thoughtful and down to earth players. No matter where they play and how far they go, they know that back home in Texas they have the love and support of a whole community.
So, today I feel, excited and happy to spend time with the people I love, watching a team we love, while making memories and making that bond even greater.
Happy Saturday and let’s enjoy the day!
