Jacob And His First Mavericks Game

Posted on 11/17/2003 to Sports

Tonight I took my oldest son, Jacob, to his first Dallas Mavericks game (not counting the one he attended in the womb -- when we lived in Denver and the Mavs came to town to beat the Nuggets).  I'd say that overall he enjoyed it.  He even made it until halftime before asking when it would be time to go home.

The Mavericks won, by the way, beating the Portland Trailblazers 105-98.  Oh, and Jacob got to witness a triple double in his first NBA game.  Steve Nash pulled it off with 14 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds.

Here's the Jacob-Junk-O-Meter from the game:

  • 1 Jumbo Hotdog
  • 1 Chicken Finger Basket w/Fries
  • 1 Small Sprite
  • 1 Bag of Cotton Candy
  • 1 Bag of Peanuts
All in all, not too bad. He did choose the peanuts over ice cream, a fried twinkie, a cookie, churros, and a pretzel.

A lady sitting behind us was nice enough to take this picture.

Caleb decided it was time to join us in the world at 9:52 PM, Wednesday, November 5th.  Though he was born just over three weeks early, he is a healthy 7 lbs. 8.3 oz., and 19.25 inches long. 

Both mom and Caleb are doing very well.
