A BIRD Sighting.jpg

A BIRD Sighting.jpg, originally uploaded by Hikingfool.

Who would of imagined that at a Pacers game, we would see a BIRD sighting! Trying to keep with the nature theme! We were literally 30 feet from him! For all you non-sports fans out there, this is Larry Bird, who played basketball for ISU, the Celtics, and even coached the Pacers at one time! He is a future Hall of Famer, and Amee was able to get his autograph for me! What a wonderful wife.

update: My basketball trivia wasnt up to date when I blogged this post. Note that Larry Bird has been inducted to the Hall of Fame in 1998.

Also special thanks goes out to Greg and Christine Wilson for making this night possible! Thanks so much!
