NBA & NFL Experience

Last November and December, I was fortunate enough to see some professional sports teams play – the Sacramento Kings vs Boston Celtics and the Seattle Seahawks vs Los Angeles Rams. I grew up watching sports (especially golf and basketball) so I was pretty stoked about these events!

Boston Celtics vs. Sacramento Kings

I bought tickets on a whim to see the Celtics play after talking about Gordon Hayward with a coworker. Unfortunately, after purchasing the tickets, Gordon Hayward ended up injuring his wrist. Despite my favorite player being benched, I still had fun when it was time to see them play! Chris and I drove to Sacramento, which is approximately 3 hours from where we live. It was fun being surrounded by Celtics fan despite the game being in California. Sadly, the Celtics lost that day but we still had fun cheering them on!

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams

Seeing the Seahawks and the Rams play was officially my first football game live!! I’ve grown to enjoy watching football in the past few years but never really keep up with it – still definitely guilty of watching the Super Bowl mainly for the ads but it’s a really interesting sport. My mom found some tickets for a good price so we ended up watching back in December. I don’t root for either team (mainly a Philadelphia Eagles fan by association, #FlyEaglesFly) but the atmosphere during the game was amazing. Our seats were really close to the field and we were surrounded by Seahawks fans that I ended up cheering for them as well (my mom is a huge fan). Too bad for mom because her team lost but it was still a fun night! Oh, Swae Lee did the half-time show so that was pretty cool hearing Sunflower live!

I’ve realized that I may be a bad luck charm since both teams I rooted for lost when I saw them live… also, back in 2017, I saw the Celtics play too and they lost drastically. Is this a sign? Haha, until the next sports event for me!

    It was great reading your experience attending sport events. I doubt you are at fault for their losses, it just happens. Don’t get discouraged now from attending more🤗. Thank you for sharing.

    That’s so cool you got to see professional games! I’ve only seen a professional baseball game, but I imagine basketball and football are much more exciting games to see live!

    Yooo I love that you got to see some of these games in person!! You still got to see your fave basketball team closeby! It is great that you got to see a Rams game!! THIS IS RAMS HOUSE!! jk, any team by the patriots tbh, hahaha. Glad you had fun when you went to watch the games. Win or lose, we still booze. TBH, 2019-2020 was a bad season for Rams, so it ain’t yo’ fault!!

    I’ve never been to a football game but it sounds like you had lots of fun. From what I can make out, American football games are much more of an experience, with other things going on besides, compared to UK football games. And I’m sure you’re not a jinx, haha, just a coincidence! x

    Oh man! I can only imagine the excitement you must have felt! I would love to go to a pro football game one day. I had so much fun watching the Super Bowl, so seeing it live must be something else lol Have a great week!

    I’ve always wanted to see an NFL game. I’m not a huge fan of basketball but I think seeing a live NBA has to be on everyones bucketlist too. I’m not a huge fan of sports in Australia. But there is something intoxicating about seeing live sports in the US. That said I only ever went to a baseball game at Fenway Park. The game itself wasn’t thrilling but just being there was such an awesome experience!

    I haven’t had the chance to see an NFL game in person. It’s so nice that you got to go with everyone and have a good time. The pictures look really nice.

    Although I’m not a fan of the sports it’s great you got to go and see them live in person! 🙂

    Hope that you are having a great weekend 🙂 We spent the day with my mum yesterday shopping the sales for the leap day (and getting some great toy bargains we’ve put away for the kids birthdays!)

    What an experience! My brother is obsessed with NFL. He supports the Cincinnati Bengals (not sure why) I’d love to go and watch a game, just for the experience. xxx
