Royalty visits friends and sees the Nets play on the road in Washington D.C.!

Sunday morning we got up and we had breakfast at the Waffle House which was conveniently located by the Days Inn we stayed at in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Stay tuned for the special post I'm going to do on that eatery.

After we ate, we drove to the Verizon Center to see the Nets take on the Washington Wizards in a matinee game. The opening tip-off was scheduled for 1PM.

We arranged to meet our good friend Peter Agnew from Baltimore there. He's been a loyal Wizards season ticket holder since 1987. He was able to secure some additional tickets free of charge and he decided to give us the royal treatment.

In addition, he brought his friend John Pratt from Baltimore and his nephew to the game.

As for the game we saw, the Nets who played without newly acquired Deron Williams. Despite that they got off to a fast start and led by 17 late in the second quarter.

In the second half, the depleted Wizards arose and they stormed back as the Nets played awful. The Wizards came away with a 98-92 victory.

After the game, we went to Baltimore where we met up with Peter and his lovely wife Carmen for dinner.

We wound up trying a new place called Matthew's Pizza.

Stay tuned as I go into further detail in a special post.

As always we enjoyed their company. We take turns visiting each other.

Peter always invites us to come down. Thankfully the schedule worked out so we took advantage of this opportunity.

That's what makes going places so much fun.

Thank you for reading and following along.

Yours truly,

Gary Herman
