I like basketball and Mr. Layland likes baseball. We both think the other sport is a waste of time but love and marriage is about sacrifice, right? We’ve been lucky enough in the past few months to make it to both games and quite enjoyed ourselves!
Phoenix Suns VS Milwakee Bucks
Cardinals VS Diamondbacks
There are two great things about going to games as a couple.
1 – You suddenly learn that your husband knows A TON about baseball. You never knew it but he’s the walking-talking version of Baseball for Dummies that you’ve always needed! Next thing you know, you actually understand the game of baseball 🙂
2 – The food. That goes for pretty much any sporting event. Basketball? Food. Baseball? Food. Hockey? Food. Sports are a beautiful thing.
Sadly, it was this very tray of nachos that distracted me from seeing Jabari Parker tear his ACL and get carried off the court. Missed the whole thing. I saw him fall down and next thing I know he’s already off the court and the player I THINK is Jabari Parker is walking away and I’m thinking “Oh good, he’s fine!” Little did I know that one minute I looked down would mean no more games for Jabari Parker. Ooops!
We had a blast at both games and got the chance to share our sports passions with each other. It’s always fun to add a little competition into a date night, even if it is just about which team you’re cheering for! Who does’t love screaming at the top of their lungs for a few hours?! Oh & don’t forget to document the great time you had together ❤
That’s life with Mr. Layland & Me!
