For those of you living in the wilderness with no access to current events, the Dallas Mavericks are NBA Champions!!! Last year the Rangers made it to the World Series and now the Mavericks earned their first-ever championship. What a great time to be a North Texas sports fan! As a video production company we’ve had the thrill of working with members of both the Rangers and the Mavericks on video and commercial projects and we are so excited to see all their hard work pay off.
After witnessing the Maverick’s stunning climb to the top (and more than a few amazing 4thquarter comebacks), it was a welcome celebration last Thursday in the streets of Dallas. Thanks to an understanding and VERY generous Andy Streitfeld (he and his wife Carolyn are long time season ticket holders) Senior Account Manager, Eileen Yedwab and myself were able to join in the fun.
Our day started out with an early morning train ride downtown to brave the crowds for the parade. The energy of the city was indescribable thanks to the 250,000+ fans that came out to show their love and support. Standing at the parade watching the World Champion Dallas Mavericks roll past was more than just great, great, it was a reminder of what real class can get you (you hear that LeBron?).
After the parade, Eileen and I had the distinct honor of joining the team for an intimate Post-Parade Celebration inside the American Airlines Center. It was an emotional hour and a half with the team recanting the long road it took to get there. These guys are the real deal – genuine, big hearted and, first and foremost, team players. And with teamwork at the core of everything we do here at AMS Pictures in our Video or Commercial Production Projects, Eileen and I could MORE than relate.
