Bellevue West boys basketball team class of 2020 seniors and parents on senior night.
This is the tenth (#10) in a series of 100-word posts I plan to write. This post is dedicated to all Nebraska high school basketball players getting ready to enter post season play. Especially the senior players and their parents.
My ultimate goal is to create 100 of these 100-word posts in no set time frame. Thanks for following along!
My heartfelt thanks goes out to every man and woman who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our collective freedom as Americans. May your actions forever be remembered and your service forever honored.
I purposely delayed publishing my third and final post in this sponsored series until today, Memorial Day. It’s hard for me to think of America without incorporating the tradition of baseball.
Omaha’s righty Trevor Oaks hurled seven solid innings from the mound. He was backed by both a dependable defense as well as a multifaceted offense that gave fans the chance to watch the Storm Chasers’ lineup displaying their short- and long-games.
If you haven’t seen outfielder Terrance Gore run the base path, do yourself a favor and buy a game ticket just for that. His speed and athleticism are worth the price of admission!
The Storm Chasers tacked on six runs in the sixth inning alone, the same inning that saw outfielder Frank Schwindel blast a two-run homer over left field.
To piggyback the physical play highlights, we enjoyed several fan experience highlights.
Fans of all ages enjoyed several on-field promotions and between-inning festivities throughout the game including:
Safeco Insurance Dizzy Bat Race
Jump Around Cam
Werner Enterprises Balloon Bust
Certified Transmission Rock On (Dueling Singing Contest)
Huber Chevrolet & McDonald’s Hurl The Pearl Contest
MY PERSONAL FAVORITE: Children’s Hospital and Medical Center Child Public Announcer
My daughter and I had to each take one for the team and partake in different concession stand treats in order to give readers of Maternal Media a true glimpse into the game experience (wink). I sampled the famous La Mesa nachos and she chose to follow-up her hot dog with a cherry snow cone.
Once the final out had been recorded, we all sat back and enjoyed the post-game fireworks.
My 14-year old son tried to convince his younger sister that the “Heidi” Friday Night Fireworks were being offered to all fans since their mom agreed to write a few blog posts for the Storm Chasers organization. She almost believed him when she heard the announcer declare something similar over the PA system. I was a pretty big deal in her eyes for about 20 seconds…until the real sponsor of the Friday Night Fireworks, “Hy-Vee,” was displayed on the big screen.
The Storm Chasers have plenty of games remaining in this, the 50th Anniversary of their organization’s franchise, commemorative season. Don’t delay…catch a game while you can.
The Omaha Storm Chasers approached me and other mom bloggers to provide sponsored content to raise awareness of their organization. I would like to thank Marketing & Promotions Coordinator, Andrew Asbury, for giving me this opportunity.
