Last night, the New Orleans Pelicans generously gave my wife and me floor seats on my birthday. (Don't ask my age). So of course, we made the drive to New Orleans and took in the debut of Mobile's own DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins, from up close.
But while sitting there, this crazy thought went through my mind: Beyonce, Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy had sat just one row in front of our seats just four days earlier -- at the NBA All-Star Game!
Their seats? Sec. 102, Row 1. Our seats? Sec. 102, Row 2.
Degrees of Separation Analysis: Just 1 row and 4 days from Queen Bey -- probably as close as I'll ever get.
