We jumped on the Memphis Grizzlies bandwagon last summer when Greivis Vasquez was drafted in the first round (from Maryland!). We got more into it when we attended the five games I got Scott for Christmas. And then the Grizz made the playoffs for the first time in 5 years (I think). But, in their 10 years as a team here in Memphis, they had never even won a play off game.
They knocked that one out very first thing as an eight-seed, playing the 1-seed San Antonio Spurs! The series kept going and when the tickets went on sale for game six, with the Grizz leading the series 3-2, I got some and Scott and I went.
I've never been to a professional play off game. And there's something about what's going on right now in Memphis, with this team, that is magical! The game coincides with Memphis in May Music festival, so, Beale Street is crazy!
Here it is, almost at the end, with us winning and knocking out the number one seed Spurs!
It was unbelievable being there for this game! We wandered down Beale for a little while afterward to celebrate!
