My company, Qualtrics, purchased the patch space on the Utah Jazz jersey this year to advertise 5 for the Fight, our cancer research charity. It's a super cool charity, and Qualtrics has pledged $50 million to cancer research. It's a lot to celebrate.
Now, I know that you're thinking that you didn't realize we were such big sportsball fans. I'll admit that our knowledge of basketball up until Saturday morning was... cursory at best (i.e. the ball is orangeish and you get 2 or 3 points per basket).
a basketball rules primer on YouTube and watched it until we could recite it from memory. Also, we watched Space Jam Saturday afternoon in preparation. The movie was, candidly, less helpful than I had hoped but it had its entertaining moments.
We also (mostly) clapped at the right times although Sam did get confused at the side-switching mid-game and started cheering for the opposing team's baskets. In his defense, it kind of is confusing that they switch sides.
Also, note that we have food in our hands in every picture. and it's never the same snack twice. I'm really proud of us.
|Here's a screen capture of our seats that we found the next day online. So fun!|
|The girls were so excited when the Qualtrics logo came up on the stadium's screens.|
And what we lack in actual knowledge, we more than make up for in enthusiasm and appetite!
