We went to Staples last night to cheer on purple and gold, but it wasn't your usual purple and gold.
Mr. Monkey had free tickets again for his office's suite. Per the instructions on the screen, we did indeed stand and roar until the Sparks scored.
There were reminders everywhere of the Lakers' horrible loss Thursday.
But the Sparks game was surprisingly enjoyable. Funny enough, I had a great time watching the acts in between the game, which were like the Anti-Laker Girls.
The SparKids were like tiny little Laker Girls (and boys).
The Ole School Crew was like Laker Girls Twenty Years Later.
Then there was the Granny League during halftime. Wow.
It was Lisa Leslie's daughter's birthday! Did you know that Lisa Leslie is 6'5" and 170 pounds. So skinny!
Jack Black's courtside antics were rather amusing. You know how celebs usually pretend they don't know they're on the Jumbotron? Not Jack Black! He totally hammed it up!
And so did we! We got on the Jumbotron ourselves last night. The boyfriend of one of Mr. Monkey's co-workers was particularly active and danced up a storm. I was laughing so hard. Too bad I missed out on memorializing it in pixel form.
The food in the suite was nothing special, but I always love the dessert cart. We got a gigantic caramel apple and slice of red velvet cake. Man, I love free stuff.
With persistence and guts, the Sparks won in overtime.
The Lakers could learn a thing or two from their female counterparts.
