So me, the wife, and a friend of ours took a ride into Boston this past Saturday night to attend the Bruins/Flyers game. I hadn't been to an NHL game since the Whalers relocated. I forgot how great live NHL action is. We were five rows from the ice in a corner. We saw five goals and two fights right in front of us. Awesome stuff!! Man, the action is so fast and so loud. Television does a hockey game no justice.
Flyers won 5-2. The Bruins scored on a shorthanded two-on-none break. How often does that happen???
A friend had season tickets to the Huricanes when they played in Greensboro. The stadium is less than 10 minutes from the office. We used to go to quite a few home games. You are right though, TV just dosent do it justice. Live hockey is so much fun.
How about showing up at First Union for a Flyers-Rangers game wearing Red, White and Blue #88. THAT would raise some eyebrows!!! I'm waiting for the Broad Street Bullies to come out west so I can invade someone elses territory with my Orange and Black.
I used to live in Vegas and pretty much all the bars align themselves with one or another pro football team. I loved going into the opponents bar on Sunday wearing my Eagles jersey. What an a$$hole.
