I like hockey!

I went to my first hockey game after my brother won tickets and needed a ride. I didn’t really want to go as images of rough and tough ice brawls danced in my head, but I figured a new experience is always a good thing, after all, I keep telling my kids to try it before you decide whether you like it or not, sooooo…

Well, the evening didn’t start all that well, there was an accident on the freeway and a 45 minute drive took an hour and a half, but we did make it, actually, a crowd of us made it – every one of us stuck driving down the freeway going five miles an hour…

But all’s well that ends well. Within moments of making the climb to the very top of the stadium, to the further-most reaches of the seats, though far, far away, the view was surprisingly decent, and our team made their first goal before we even sat down. To top it off, they made another goal soon after we took our seat. I was on my feet howling with the rest of the crowd.

It was a pleasantly uncomplicated game that I could follow easily, as long as I didn’t lose sight of the puck. Guys crashed into each other, though I couldn’t quite tell if it was accidently or not… being hockey, I bet not, however it wasn’t the violent fist-throwing, shirt-grabbing, tooth-losing game that I thought it would be and I found that I loved it and look forward to the next time I get to go!

Wow… who’da thunk?
