One of the perks of the hubs' job is that we often get to go to Jazz games and sit in killer seats. February 1 was one of those such days. The hubs, myself, and my in-laws took our seats completely ignorant of what was in store for us as the Jazz started to play Damion Lillard and the Trailblazers. At the end of the game, the hubs (along with all the employees from GWCU and a guest) went down on the court for a shooting challenge.
The challenge went as follows:
Round One: Make a free throw. If you make the free throw you a) get your name put in a drawing for an autographed Jazz basketball signed by the whole team and b) get to move on to round two.
Round Two: Make a three-pointer. If you make this shot you a) receive $35 and b) get to move on to round three. Keep in mind you only get one shot each time.
Round Three: Make a half court shot. If you make this shot you a) win $500 and b) have the chance to win the grand prize of an autographed Mo Williams jersey. (For those of you who don't habla basketball...Mo Williams plays for the Jazz)
The hubs and his dad shoot their free-throws and make both. Names in the drawing and moving on. Hubs shoots his three-point shot and makes it. Father in law doesn't. Tough luck. $35.00 in my pocket. Score. Moving on. Half court shot... S.W.I.S.H. The hubs won $500.00. I'm standing there taking pictures like the good little wife that I am, and as the ball falls in the net, I run to half court all but tackling hubs in my excitement. Hubs has his arms in the air, eyeballs almost popping out of his sockets, and stomping his feet around like a psycho as I leech myself to his middle. We looked like fools. Who cares. We walked away with $535.00, the Mo Williams Jersey, and father in law won the drawing for the ball. Hodges clean house. Thanks Energy Solutions and GWCU. See you next time.
