Love and Basketball at Villanova Hoops Mania 2013

Villanova Hoops Mania 2013: forget forgettable, Be Victorious

I attended Villanova’s Hoops Mania last night. I went with a girlfriend who I had lost touch with for some time. This was only the second time we had seen each other since reuniting and yet we were back to finishing each other’s sentences and reading each other’s facial expressions as if no time at all had passed. Friendships like that, ones that can go from rocky to smooth sailing without any leftover animosity are rare.

It’s important to be able to differentiate which relationships should be left in the past and which are worth leaving doors open for. As it is with sports, if you are not a consistent player you will get benched or worse, let go from the team. Relationships and friendships need that same level of passion, dedication and commitment.

When it comes to friendships and love there are crucial moments during this game of life that will either catapult you into the hero who clinches the victory by paying attention to the minor details and catching what others would have missed or a disappointment soon to be forgotten because your effort just wasn’t enough.

Here are some of my casual pics from last night’s Hoops Mania event at the Pavillion. Oh, and the special surprise musical guest? Nicki Minaj, who by the way, is super sweet and has a gorgeous smile! #BarbieArmy : )

 Remember, forget forgettable, Be Victorious
