Adam Levine is a Rangers Fan

The first time I came to Center was back when it was known as the Smirnoff, and I had never had a sip of vodka. I was ten years-old, and seeing the Spice Girls in concert before they created “girl power” and harnessed the fan following (and platform shoes) to produce a reunion tour. A middle school, high school, and college experience later, I am back, taking in the full experience of a venue that is partially outdoors. And this time I have a Canon 7D and a photo pass.

I’m in the pit photographing Maroon 5 during high-energy “Harder to Breathe” close enough to see the color of Adam’s eyes and his new tattoos. He is the definition of a performer, alive and vibrant onstage, feeding off the crowd. John Mayer, Keith Urban, and Dave Grohl receive accolades for their masterful guitar skills, and Adam deserves ranking right up there with them. “It’s a good night, it’s a beautiful night, and we love sharing it with you,” he introduces the next song, “this next tune is by one of our favorite people,” he says before the band plays ‘If I Ain’t Got You”, by Alicia Keys.

Dog Days at the Ball Park

Posted by    |    July 26th, 2010 at 2:11 pm

My son Sean, our dog Major and I headed off to the Ball Park to watch the Rangers beat the Angels yesterday.   It was a real “treat” for Major and for us.  The Ball Park arranged for the dogs (and owners) to parade around the baseball field prior to the game.  Then, we all hung out together and watched the game.  Petco provided each dog a bag of goodies, including a bandana, a water bowl and dog treats.  The Ball Park officials were kind enough to provide water for those of us who came ill prepared for the pre-game heat.  We stood in a long line prior to the parade commencement, but every one, including owners, were well behaved. 

Here are three reasons why you should participate the next time the Ball Park holds this event:

1.  You get to walk inside the Park.  This was a first for Sean, Major and me.
2.  It was really fun matching up dog owners and their pets. 
3.  The dogs were really well behaved during the game except for Major, who took issue with a dog four times his size in the second inning.

One side note.  If you don’t already know, Lexus offers free valet parking next to the stadium if you arrive in your Lexus.
