Trip to Denver for the NCAA Tourney (Picture Journey)

My wife and I had a great trip:

First we learned how to Jimmer

Then we hung out with all sorts of crazy fans:

We saw Brandon Davies right where he should be:

Then this:

Followed by this:

Helped lead to this:

Which caused all of this:

And now I guess it is time to fulfill this:

Great trip. Great memories. We saw old friends. Ran into older friends randomly. Sat on Row 2 for the first game. High-fived all the players and coaches coming in and out of the locker room. We got to see John Stockton. But most of all, we get to say that we were there.

ESPN Roadshow Fame

Okay, it is only for about 1 or 2 seconds. And you have to pay really close attention. But at about 3:10 in the following video, if you look, you can see me and my crew at the MWC Tourney in Vegas. ESPN shot this video from the aisle right as Emery threw down an awesome dunk. We went crazy.

You can easy see Weston White, myself, David Castleberry, and Mark Mendoza going crazy in the background. Fifteen more minutes I guess.

We all think it is pretty funny. The cheering was supposed to be staged but there was nothing staged when Emery threw down that dunk. It was utter madness.

More TJ Fredette; Official Radio Release of Amazing, featuring Na Drua

Someone of you might know that I have been lucky enough to get to know TJ over the last year, months, and, in particular, weeks. I've been in studio with him and the guys from a band known as Na Drua (I'll do a Na Drua post in a couple of days -- they deserve their own). I like to think that I have been able to help TJ get some of the wrinkles ironed out with respect to ownership of tracks and licensing / copyright issues but, in the end, I'm just a fan who happens to be a lawyer that is trying to help out a friend.

Long story short, the first of several new tracks was officially released tonight: Here is the mastered version. I love it. I recommend you go to YouTube, like it, and leave a comment:

Now, I was also at the performance where they premiered the song (before releasing it to the public. The sound quality isn't great because there were problems with Na Drua's mics and, let's face it, the Marriott Center wasn't built for acoustics and concerts. But Mr. Fredette, as always, put on quite the show and here is the "official" release (the first ever public performance) of the Official Radio Release of Amazing.

Same suggestions. Go like it and leave some comments.

Look for the tracks from TJ Fredette and Na Drua to hit iTunes in the near future. These are great guys and I can personally assure you that they would love to have your support, even if it is just a "like" on their YouTube videos.

Now for BYU to win the MWC Tourney, the NCAA Tourney / March Madness, and for Jimmer Fredette to be declared the greatest basketball player in the history of the world (thus completing my bucket list).
