Feeling Lucky

Tuesday was a very lucky day for me. Well actually, for my Mom, but I benefited from her luck. Long story short, she won concert tickets to Dierks Bentley and Chad Brownlee on Tuesday night. Not only that, she won the opportunity to meet Dierks Bentley and go backstage and play a table hockey game against him!!! Our local country music radio station was having this contest and it just happened to be her lucky day to win. And of course she invited me to come with her.

We arrived at the concert hall and were taken backstage. Mom practiced for about 5 minutes on the table hockey game and then Dierks came in to play. It was a fun game and Dierks was in the lead as he had scored 3 times. Then he said, “Ok, the score is 0-0 and the next goal wins.” Well guess what, Mom scored her first and final goal and won the game. If only he hadn’t been so cocky. YAY! My mom beat Dierks Bentley at table hockey. Haha. Dierks was a little bit of a sore loser too and gave me heck for cheering my Mom on so hard and not him. LOL.

We were able to get the table hockey game signed as well as our Dierks Bentley cd. Then of course we took a picture with him. See:

After many ‘thank yous’ and ‘nice to meet yous’, we left and took our seats for the concert. Unfortunately, we were up on the 2nd balcony. Both Mom and I are very big seat snobs and if we aren’t in the first couple rows, we usually don’t buy tickets. But hey, these tickets were free so we didn’t complain too much.

Chad Brownlee opened the show and he was absolutely amazing. Honestly, I like his music better than Dierks Bentley’s, and so I really enjoyed his show. He is Canadian and I don’t know if he has emerged into the USA country music market yet. He used to be an NHL hockey player but has moved on the country music, to the delight of my ears!!! πŸ˜› Oh and I got to meet him too:

Dierks Bentley’s show was really good too. The crowd definitely went crazy. Everyone was on their feet dancing and singing along. At the end of the night, Chad came back on stage and both Dierks and Chad used hockey sticks to shoot free t-shirts out into the crowd. Obviously, they didn’t reach the second balcony, but it was still really cool to see how far they could shoot the shirts.

It was a very nice and unexpected evening. When I had woken up that morning, I had planned to go to Weight Watchers that night, but I was delighted at how my plans changed. πŸ˜‰
