Caleb and Willa King Play the National Anthem

In my inbox this morning, I found the following e-mail from a family/church friend:

Taylor, Caleb, Willa and I drove down to the stadium in the afternoon, picked up back-stage passes and were directed to a dressing room. After a sound check we returned to the dressing room where the children practiced a few more times. Caleb and Willa were escorted onto the court and at 7PM the lights dimmed. They stepped out to the center of the court and played the anthem. I stood at court side with my video camera, taking this 2-minute clip. The announcer said there were 24,000 people at the game. Quite an experience for these two. Quite a proud papa watching them!

Nicely done! Papa’s not the only one proud of these two. :-)

Update. I edited the first sentence to clarify that I didn’t write the quoted e-mail. Caleb and Willa are not my children and I can’t claim any credit. I’m just proud.

Update (2/7/2010). The Blazers provided Art with some professional video of Caleb and Willa playing.

Oh, and the Blazer’s beat Sacramento.

    1. Caleb and Willa aren't my kids, but I'm proud of them anyway. You're right — they're pretty great!

      I'm not much of a sports fan and I don't have strong feeling either way when it comes to Portland v. Sacramento. Sac's my hometown and I live near Portland.

  1. Thanx for the post Brent! Caleb and Willa had so much fun, and so did the rest of us.

    Before the game, I was asked to sign a waiver form. It was small print legaleze and I’m not exactly sure what it said, but I think my children may now be the property of the National Basketball Association. <grin>

    1. Ho! You probably promised that you wouldn't post video of their performance. ;-D

      And if they're property of the NBA, will the NBA pay for their college tuition? Is there any way I could sign one of those? ;-)
