Welcome home party

Post by ronburgandee » March 10th, 2020, 6:03 pm

I feel bad asking because I was unable to attend the welcome back party at the airport and/or spectrum. Was anyone able to go? How did it turn out?

There were clips of the airport on Twitter but I never saw anything surface with the Spectrum. Makes me think it was a bust.

I saw some videos on instagram of players coming off the bus holding the trophy and a crowd of people cheering them on. The few that were there got pictures with players and it looked like some got pictures holding the trophy!

I posted videos on on twitter of the airport.

The players and coaches were surprised and genuinely happy with the reception.

Search for aggiefan33 and you can see some clips.

To be fair, most of the diehards that would normally attend an event like this had gone down to Vegas for the tournament and likely weren't back in time. At least that's my excuse.

There was a good crowd at the Spectrum, given it was 3 A.M and rainy!! Players went around and gave high fives to everyone and took pictures. Coach Smith came around thanking everybody, but barely had a voice left haha. Fonzo came off the bus with a speaker blaring We Are The Champions so that was pretty cool!

I wish I could have been there, the 3AM wouldn't phase me, but we were in Vegas :c I am pretty sad I missed it now that I know they got to have such personal, fun experiences with the team!

Uhhh, did you say you were in Vegas? As in, present witness to "The Shot"? I think you won in this arrangement.

There was 50 or so people at the Spectrum at 3:30 am. The players and coaches loved it.

Hahaha good point. I certainly wouldn't trade the experiences. But I'm a greedy man! I wanted both lol.
