Another Good Wii Game — Mario Sports Mix

On my first post I told you about Kirby’s Epic Yarn.  Well, we found a new Wii game called Mario Sports Mix that’s really fun.  You can play either Basketball, Volleyball, Dodgeball, or Hockey.  You can either play a game or a tournament.  If you win all the tournaments, you have to battle an enormous purple dragon from Final Fantasy that can fire meteors.  You can either play as your famous Mario characters, or your Mii.  During the games, you can make special moves like you have Superpowers — you can jump very high, spin, dunk or spike the ball — and there are bombs and banana peels to throw at your opponent.  If you win, you get a giant trophy — either the Mushroom Cup, the Flower Cup or the Star Cup.  We recommend this game for any kid — it’s challenging, funny and enjoyable!  

Meeting Miranda

On my last post, you heard that Miranda Cosgrove was coming to town.  On that day, I was able to go to the concert and go backstage to meet her.  She is really, really nice — a lot like her character on iCarly.  She was wearing a cool black jacket with a silver metallic skirt.  When she found out that I was the girl who interviewed her for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, she got really excited and gave me a big hug!  She also signed the Post-Gazette story for me, and we talked about the interview, our best friends and our puppies.  After I met her, we went back to our seats, which were right up front.  Greyson Chance was the first act, then Miranda came out.  She put on a great concert — with amazing music, male dancers and crazy lights!  She changed her clothes three times and she looked great every time.  At the end of the concert, everyone left their seats and went up to the edge of the stage and danced — it was awesome!  That was my best concert ever!

Miranda Cosgrove’s Concert Is Tomorrow!

Most of you know I interviewed Miranda Cosgrove for a story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last week.  But, there’s more to the story.  After the interview, Miranda said she wanted to meet me so she sent me tickets to her show! She also sent me backstage passes, so I’ll get to meet her!  She will be performing at the Carnegie Library Music Hall of Homestead on Wednesday, February 2nd at 7:30pm.  She said that she’ll be singing all the songs from her album “Sparks Fly,” and will also introduce her new single, “Dancing Crazy,” and a couple of other songs.   Get the tickets before it’s too late!  And if the show is sold out (which it may be), get her album, because it’s amazing!
