Having a Ball with the Spurs

A cold night in San Antonio outside, but inside the AT&T Center the place was hot and rockin'. Ty and I made the trip down I-35 for the rematch between the Spurs and Knicks. 

This was Ty's second time at an NBA game, but his first trip to this arena. He got to see the championship trophies, meet the Silver Dancers, and enjoy the over-priced concessions. It was a fun night and the Spurs won! 

Ty was so funny that at some points during the game he was yelling along with the fans when there was a bad call by the referee. I think the only part of the night he didn't like was that he had to leave before the end so we wouldn't spend an extra hour getting out of the parking lot.

Yellow Belt Test - Board Break

This past Saturday, Ty passed his first Gup test in Karate to achieve a yellow belt. This video was shot during the final phase of the test where Ty had to break a board with his fist. He had never done it before, yet struck through it with ease on his first try. (the instructor partially blocks the view, but you can see Ty's success. also you can adjust to higher quality for viewing).

If you click through to our You Tube page, another longer video has also been uploaded showing him demonstrate basic form #1. It was a very exciting and proud day for all of us who were present.
