a thunder fan is what i've become

In general, I tend to lag a bit when it comes to posting a blog entry about almost anything. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will never be one of those up-to-the-minute bloggers. I just haven't been able to kick my procrastination completely when it comes to posting. {I am pretty good about staying current on Facebook, though. :) I upload pics over there on the regular.}

However, today is a rare day. I am actually posting about last night. Not last week or last month or even last year. :)

Last night was the final regular season game for my Thunder. Over the last year, I have gone from liking the Thunder, to being absolutely smitten by them! I just adore our players and our coach and everything about our team. And I love the excitement of being at a game!

{me with K and B, my game-watching-girls. Shoutout to my friend Brandie, who is the reason I was able to attend more than a few games this season -- thanks, B! :)}

James Harden is my number one man on the Thunder. Among other things, I love the fact that he is unafraid to stand out and be different with his unique beard. :) He seems like he is a fun person.

I always spend a good amount of the game taking stalker pics of him.

{Hi, Beardfriend. ;)}


After the game, K and I headed over to America's Pub in Bricktown. We had seen on Twitter that there was to be an after party for the final game with some of the players putting in an appearance. Well, of course I jumped at the chance to see Beardfriend up close in person.

And he walked right past me. I could have touched him. {But I didn't.}


One of his friends, Privaledge, was performing, so he was up on the stage most of the night, so I never got a pic with him {yet}, but I was happy just to be hanging out in the same room with him. Don't make fun of me. I am unashamed to admit all of this, just keepin' it real. :)

I did get a pic with the very handsome Thabo Sefolosha. Which made me extremely happy. And made several girls I know extremely jealous. Including my niece, Laila, who loves him a lot. And my friend Kelly, she loves him too. And my friend Christi. And I think my friend Cassie loves him a lot, too. Although it could be Ibaka that she loves so much, I can't remember right now... :)

Anyway, he was very nice.

{Thabo, you are so handsome.}

Serge Ibaka is a close third when it comes to my favorites, with KD and Westbrook being tied for second. Sometimes Serge steals the second spot from them, it just depends on my mood. :) So when Serge walked in, I was super-excited!

I got this pic of him, isn't it nice?


Now, look at that previous pic again. It was taken just seconds before I handed my camera to a guy and asked him to grab a pic of me and Serge. This is what I got...


Wah-wahhh! :( Thanks for the pic, dude. I was so sad, because I didn't even have time to review the pic before Serge walked away. Oh well, at least I got to feel his back muscles when I put my arm around him. Is that wrong?

So, basically this post pretty much sums up the ridiculous Thunder fan I have become. Don't mind me. I'll just be watching the playoffs these next few weeks.

Who am I?? What have I become???
