...and one of them was even asked to try out for the NHL by a scout, but he turned it down on his (now ex) wifes insistance
Why is it some women make a point of killing their partner's dreams? And why is it that men LET them??? GGGRRRR....one of those things that just drives me nuts about women!
Anyway, back to HOCKEY!!
The game last night was GREAT! We were 9th row from the ice.
Although it was cool to see the hits that close, honestly I like the 2nd level seats better. We could only see 1/2 the ice well from our seats last night, but 2nd level you can see the whole game and watch plays develop.
I think our team looks a lot better this year than they did at this time last year. Aebschire looked really good, and very comfortable in goal for the first half, allowing no goals. Sakic, Forsberg, Foote, and Kariya all played last night, but Selaane and Blake didn't. By the end of the game their passing was getting pretty solid already, which didn't happen until about 1/2 through the season last year! Sakic and Kariya were really gelling well together.
We ended up tied 2-2, but both goals were scored against the goalie that will most likely be sent back down to the Hershey Bears. After he settled down, he looked pretty solid too though. He's been the Bear's MVP 3 consecutive years, so he looks like a good up-and-comer.
But what I don't understand is how the guys sitting next to us paid all that money for the seats and talked about Fantasy Football almost the whole darn game! ARG! Well, that and about all the pretty young things going up and down the aisles.
Kinda ironic that this girl knew a whole lot more about what was going on than the men around us. LOL
