Yes, hockey. My husband may not be a hunter...thank goodness, I dont care for dead animal heads all over the walls as decoration for the living room, BUT he is a sports fan. He loves soccer the most, but loves hockey almost as much.
When an opportunity came up to get free tickets to the Thrashers game tonight...http://thrashers.nhl.com/ well you know we were going to be going.
Now I have never, ever been into sports. I was always supportive of Ians soccer games while we were dating and even early on in our marriage. He had played since he was 8 years old, and played til his body wouldnt let him anymore, so now he has to enjoy the game from the sidelines.
He puts up with my chickens, Shelbys horse and rabbits, I guess we can go to a hockey game.
There is one thing I will say. We have been to two of them before. Once you have been to one live, you will understand. It is a lot of fun if you are actually there. Watching it on TV is so boring compared to being there.
The blare of the horn when they score...the Thrasher bird head coming open at the mouth and blasting hot flames from its mouth...the music, the fans...it all comes together when you are there in person. On TV they dont show the Thrasher bird shooting flames...I like to see that.
I wonder if they allow cameras? I want to take some pictures!
So, I better get off my rump and get things in order so we can be ready to go this afternoon.
If they allow pictures you can be sure I will post them here tomorrow. :)
