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.
