Last night was the last game of the season of perpetual maladies. Thankfully the Wolves saw fit to put away the Spurs for the second time this year and for the first time in San Antonio in quite some time. Many of you were likely paying more attention to this victory than a small group of CHers who did a meetup at The Hole Sports Bar. I can't recall much of the game because my attention, which isn't all that laser sharp to begin with, was focused on enjoying meeting some of the CH faithful. We shared food, beverages and good stories throughout the game and absolutely enjoyed each others company. I snapped some quick phone shots of the group near the end of the festivities and thought it might prove interesting to see if other Hoopers could identify everyone.
I'm sure everyone will know Cynical Jason and TMiss from their avatar photos, and some may recognize me from a photo post from a couple years ago, but let's see if people can pick out everyone else. Present for the photos were; Don'tBeSoMeanYoungFella, Facial, E-6, and Slowbreak in addition to myself and CJ and TMiss. Here's the first photo:
Good looking group of guys for sure! Here's the next shot:
The only disappointment of the evening was that VooDoo Magic wasn't able to make it; we were all [primed to hear him doing a Prince song! VooDoo, you missed a great opportunity; there was really no competition at the microphone last night. On to photo number three:
I have to post just one more shot because a monocle should never go to waste:
As Slowbreak and Facial mentioned it feels a bit odd to go out to meet, for the first time, people that you've spent a considerable amount of time with already, but I suppose that is the nature of blogging. I, for one, absolutely had a blast spending time with these folks and found them to be every bit as enjoyable to associate with in person as they are on the blog. I'll definitely be at the next CH meetup, schedule permitting, of course!
