Roughly a month ago Mrs. n8itude aka MyShellter attended a Raptors game, but not just any regular season game, it was Feb .6, 2015; Raptor’s 20th Anniversary Game honoring Jerome ‘JYD’ Williams.
Naturally I gave her a mission, if I couldn’t be there myself, then she has to take plenty pics and report back everything via WhatsApp. She did it no questions asked. I’m lucky I know. Now we have a story. See how that goes.
Waiting for the 20th anniversary game night. #breakthelosingstreakgame to start #uknowtheygonnawinwitmehere
The best thing for me was that my obsession with collectibles has transferred over to my wife, so she can spot a future sought after treasure in a minute. Her first message when she actually got to her box seat was the following.
Only 5000 handed out. Not everyone in our box got one lol
Tonight is also the latest Raptors 20th Anniversary Night Presented by Air Canada and this one’s going to the dogs. Jerome “JYD” Williams will be in the house, JYD bobbleheads go to the first 5,000 ticket holders attending tonight’s game plus fans also get a special halftime peformance from Phife Dawg of legendary hip hop act A Tribe Called Quest.
