Oakland A’s 50th Anniversary Game

Last night, my friend attended the Oakland A’s 50th Anniversary Game against the Chicago White Sox at the Oakland Coliseum. This was by far without question the best games we’ve gone to so far because of the free admission tickets, courtesy of my Uncle Frederick’s co-workers, and we got to choose any seat that we wanted. So, we got to sit behind the home plate to get the best view of the game. The highlight of it all was that we destroyed the White Sox by a final score of 10-2. 

Overall, we had the best time at this game and we look forward to the upcoming games we attend this season and hope we continue to get really good seats! 

Happy 50th Anniversary Oakland A’s!

Halfway to 50 at Thunder Valley

This weekend, I celebrated my Halfway to 50 birthday at Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, CA with my buddies Sam, Justin, and Anthony. Even though it was a farther trip from the Bay Area, it was well worth it! We originally planned to go last week, but we had to reschedule it do to other things going on and poor weather conditions.

The room we got was a Provence suite with a sofa bed on one side of the room, and a king size bed on the other, which was courtesy of my Uncle Donnie Pestrana. Other highlights of the trip included touring Denio’s Flea Market, the Roseville Galleria Mall, swimming at the pool, eating at the buffet, and most importantly gambling at the casino.

Casinos are one of my favorite places to hang out mainly because of all the bright colors of the slot machines, card and roulette tables, and the overall ambience. No matter if it’s Thunder Valley, Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, or Reno, it’s always an exciting place to visit whether you win or lose.

Special thanks to Uncle Donnie for providing us the room, my friends for joining me, and everyone else who made my birthday special! Wonder what next year will have in store and where my next destination will take place!

March Madness Champions

I know this is kind of late, but congratulations to the Villanova Wildcats for winning the 2018 March Madness Tournament! It was a long journey for them and a tough battle, but in the end, they managed to pull it all off by a final score of 79-62 over the Michigan Wolverines. 

With the season over, it’s off to the NBA Draft for most players and a new generation of students to join a college basketball team!

March Madness may look confusing to a lot of people because it’s hard to keep track of whose in what bracket with so many teams playing at once. But it gets easier once it gets down to the final four and the championship. 

Although I prefer watching college football, I might sneak in a college basketball game or two! After all, most of the college rivalries are pretty much the same no matter what sport it is!

To all the future NBA players and college players, good luck with your careers and continue to shine on the court!
