Now that the Spurs have blown up the Heat franchise, what do basketball fans do? I guess we wait for the draft by watching World Cup? Anyways, not much Raptors news going on, so the blog is going to be quiet for awhile. Here is a story from my own life about taking my son to his first live basketball game. Harrison`s First Live Basketball Game One of Harrison`s Christmas presents was tickets to go and see a Halifax Rainmen game. We have been to see the Halifax Mooseheads a few times, but never to a Rainmen game. Harrison loves basketball and watches it on TV whenever I am watching it. He is even starting to get the rules of the game. For some reason, he loves it when the ball gets stolen. Anyways. Sunday was being referred to as “no nap day“ because the game was at 2pm, which is usually when the boys nap. I was looking forward to the game as well because live basketball (no matter the level) is always a treat. I have been a hoops fan for most of my life, so I would never say no to going to a game. The exciting part was our seats were on the floor right behind the basket. So we bundled up and headed down to the Metro Centre where the Rainmen play. The game was against the Saint John Mill Rats. I have no idea what a Mill Rat is, but I knew they were a better team than Halifax. The Rainmen are not having a good season, so my expectations for a win were pretty low. We got our snacks (popcorn always) and found our seats. They were really close. We could hear what the players were saying to each other as they warmed up.
