I’m just returning from a fun-filled week back home in the Bay Area! It was great to see my family and catch up with some friends, making the rounds…I never get to see EVERYONE! However, I did manage to check out my two favorite hometown teams …the Golden State Warriors and the Oakland Raiders!
First up, the Golden State Warriors game, 11.20.09! My good friend CNET star, Brian Tong had an extra ticket and treated me to the Portland game. He took the above “twitpic” and the Warriors have a twitter account that “retweets” pics of fans from the game, so to my surprise this picture got “retweeted!” lol
My hosts for the week, my baby sister Alison and her bf Jono donned their team gear to head to Oracle Arena as well!
I believe the Warriors only had 8 guys suited up…but they won in very convincing fashion and it was GOOD TIMES!
The one thing about Bay fans, is they are loyal…I know it’s tough to stick by and watch when losing is the trend and it gets painful, so I was happy to be in the building for this win!!
Also in attendance, my Raiderette sisters Jeanette and Serrita (who had floor seats), but the lovely ladies came up at halftime to say hi!
Come Sunday 11.22.09…I headed down to the Coliseum to see my Oakland Raiders in action, playing against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals!
My good friend and Raiderette sister Tiaja came out to brave the COLD and enjoy the gametime festivities with me…
And wouldn’t ya know it…RAIDERS took the W in the final seconds when we thought it’d go into overtime!! It was SUPER EXCITNG, everyone was jumping for joy! Tiaja said it felt like we won the Super Bowl! haha BUT basically what I’m trying to say is the BAY WINS and I’m 2 for 2 this season when attending Bay games! 🙂 BTW..LOVED that concessions came around and served Hot Cocoa with whip cream … it was ONLY $5! lol
