Jazz Baby

Living in the New York metro area Beckett only gets two chances a year to see his favorite team play basketball. Beckett had plans when the Jazz played against the Knicks earlier in the year (something about being a really tiny baby), but he made us get some tickets for the game Saturday night against the Nets.

Here's Beckett getting ready for the game in his pre-game Jazz outfit. By the time it was time to go to the game he wanted to go in his pajamas, just in case. Lucky for us Beckett also owns Jazz pajamas.

Here's Beckett in his too cute jammies. Hey Beckett, give me back my seat. And my ticket!

Here's a Beckett head in front of the court. We were going to take some pictures four rows in front of us in the aisle separating the lower lower bowl from the upper lower bowl where we were sitting, but the crabby old usher lady wouldn't let Beckett stand in the aisle for 20 seconds.

Here's the happy Jazz family. Beckett in Jazz jammies, daddy in Jazz track jacket (and Jazz jersey underneath), and mommy in old school Jazz t-shirt. Quite the good sport for someone who doesn't really care about sports.

You'll notice that we are all happy. That's because this picture was taken before the game. Sadly the Jazz decided that defense is unnecessary and ended up losing in the final seconds.

Other than the whole losing thing, we had lots of fun. Beckett had a rough time there in the first quarter, but he was quite the trooper in the second half. Beckett told me after the game that mommy and Beckett are going alone next year, as daddy has NEVER seen the Jazz win a game in the New York metro area. 0-5 now. Every year they defeated the Knicks at MSG I was either studying for finals or already in Utah after finals. So, yea, I'm starting to think I might be a jinx.

Private Matters

O.J. Simpson had a press conference today concerning what he would have said if he had actually done anything wrong. Here is what he had to say:

Over the past twelve years, eight on the golf course and four at the beach, I’ve tried to find the true killers of my ex-wife. We vowed to find whoever did it and that will continue. Today, I want to briefly address a private matter. I have acted in a way that violated the obligations to my family and that violates my — or any — sense of right and wrong. I apologize first, and most importantly, to my family. I apologize to the public, to whom I promised better. I do not believe that naked gun movies in the long run are about individuals. It is about ideas, the public good and doing what is best for comedy. But I have disappointed and failed to live up to the standard that I expected of myself. I must now dedicate some time to regain the trust of my family. I will not be taking questions. Thank you very much. I will report back to you in short order. Thank you very much.

In other news, O.J. Simpson did not actually have a press conference, but Eliot Spitzer did. But don't worry, it was just about a private matter. I'm sure there might be a small article on the New York Times website if you are curious about his purely private matters.

Stand in the Place Where You Live

It must be shocking to go out of the room for just a second and return to this for the first time. Yes, Beckster now pulls himself up on toys (and anything else) to practice standing.

Beckett wants to know what you're looking at!
