The Big Digital becomes a Witness

Last week at my ward Christmas party, there was a charity auction and one of the items up for bids was two 11th row seats for the Jazz-Heat game this past Wednesday. I always think it's much more rewarding to go to a Jazz game with lower bowl tickets, where I don't just end up watching the Jumbotron to see what's going on. So I decided to bid on them. And I won. At less than face value. It would have been much less than face value if not for the wife of one of the bishopric members bidding me up about $80 more than what anyone else was willing to pay. :) Anyway, it's for a good cause, so I don't really regret it.

I ended up taking my brother Ben with me, and while the Jazz managed to fall apart in the 4th quarter, it was still a lot of fun, and cool to see the Jazz and LeBron and D-Wade all up close and in person. LeBron and Wade both had some amazing dunks. I took my camera with me, and while it's just a little point and shoot, I got some decent photos. Here are a few:

I don't mean to be a grammar snob, but I am a writer for a living and you always correct me :) The caption on your first picture should be "Ben and ME," not "Ben and I."

My first thought was "Me and Ben", and then I changed to "Ben and I". I believe it's clear to anyone reading who is in the photo, as is. :)
