Arkansas Diamonds Game

Last night DJ, Makenna and I went to the Diamonds game. For those of you who don't know (liked I didn't) the Twisters changed their name to the Diamonds. For those of you who don't live around here, the Diamonds are an indoor football league. We thought Makenna would have fun because she is not your typical 2 year old girl and she loves football. I guess I shouldn't say "we" it was DJ's idea. So we drive to the game and pay $10 for parking (yes I said $10 for parking??!!:{ Then we were walking up to the ticket counter to buy tickets ( which range from $23-$33 for decent seats) and we saw this guy in a Twisters jersey. He had 3 tickets in his hand. I thought he was trying to sell them. He looked at us for a minute and then he asked us if we wanted the tickets. He said the owner gave them to him and he didn't have time to find anyone to give them to so he wanted to know if we wanted them. We were stunned for a minute! They were free tickets and he said they were better seats than his. So we said thank you so much and took the tickets. The seats were great!! They were 2nd row about 20-30 yard line ( I think, you should ask my husband, he is better at these things!) Makenna was very sleepy so we didn't plan very well. But we have an amazing daughter and she didn't complain at all. Once the football game started she enjoyed the action. She liked it when they kicked the ball and hit their head and their butt! What a girl!! After half time she was very sleepy so she wanted to get down and walk around. But we told her where to go and she obeyed pretty well. She was so cute! She is the best daughter in the world! We had a great time. We left after the 3rd quarter cause it was late but we all had a great time. I think we will do it again.

The tickets were actually $60 seats, and that's before all the convenience charges and what not. As for the location (I love you, honey), the 25 yard line is midfield, so there isn't a 30. But these seats were between the 5 and 10 so on a large field, we were similar to a 20-25 yard line seat on a full size field.
