Nice visit with Nick

This post was started several weeks ago but I forgot to post it –

I got an email from Nick Oliver early last week that he would be visiting Utah on business and was hoping we could get together. I was excited about the opportunity to see Nick but apprehensive about the severe winter weather we have been experiencing. He was going to be down in Provo and I was worried about either of us having to travel the roads if they got bad. We talked Sunday and it worked out that we both were available Tuesday night and while the weather was really bad on Monday, it was looking like it would be clear on Tuesday. I didn’t know what we were going to do that night but after remembering how crazy it was taking my kids to dinner with Billy Price last time he was in town, I was really trying to avoid another restaurant experience. As I was driving to work Tuesday morning, they announced some discounted tickets to that nights Jazz game. I thought maybe that would be a good idea so I picked up a couple of them and ended up meeting Nick at the Energy Solutions Arena for the game against the New York Knicks.

Nick and I have a great friendship. It is amazing that months and sometimes years will go by without having seen or talked to each other and yet getting together is never awkward or forced, we seem to just pick up right where we left off. Cheap tickets usually equate to cheap seats. We were pretty high up but center court. It was fun to catch up with Nick, his career, family and such. Our kids are about the same age so it is fun to hear how they are growing and the funny things they do.

Jami and I would really like to get up to Seattle this year and Nick did a really good job twisting our arms. If there is anyone else who wants to see us up there we are looking for cheap room and board. Let us know!

  1. Come on Adam, you know you got free room and board at our place (we do accept tips though) and we have plenty of room for the fam. Come on out, it would be great to have you guys up this summer.

  2. We are headed up there in July… the Wheeler’s have plenty of space for all of us, right?
