Hockey for the Family

We got lucky enough to have a friend give us tickets to the UVU vs. BYU hockey game last Friday. We haven't taken the kids to a hockey game before, so we weren't sure how it would turn out. I enjoy watching hockey - SURPRISE SURPRISE! I guess that's one thing you wouldn't guess about me because I'm not a sports fanatic. Unfortunately I forgot the camera, so all you get is a stock photo.

We got to the game about 45 minutes early to make sure we would get a seat. Turns out, we had the pick of the whole stands! We went right down to the very front row, right by the ice, and it made ALL the difference. All of the kids had so much fun and they actually watched the game. We were sitting right next to where the players come out onto the ice. When it was time for them to come out, Athena, Samantha, and Nathan lined up to watch the excitement. As the hockey players ran by us, I just about passed out when I got a whiff of those uniforms. My gosh!!! They stunk so bad!!! I can't believe no one has caught onto that yet and found a way to have them start the game out clean. It was really bad.

The seats we had were perfect because several times throughout the game we had the players slam into the glass right in front of us, or a little fight would break out. We even had the puck come flying right at our faces, only to be stopped by the glass!

During one of the breaks, the PR people went onto the ice and started throwing Ding Dongs to the fans. Because they could see us on the front row with 4 kids, they came and threw a couple Ding Dongs just to us. That was really nice! The kids and Jeremy quite enjoyed that little treat. I can make 2 Ding Dongs go a loooong way. I'm so proud of myself. :)

The game lasted until 11:00pm and all 4 kids made it happily to the end. We will HAVE to do that again - of course, if our friend gives us tickets again.
Thanks Vince!

Samantha's highlight of the game was when the hockey players were coming out onto the ice. She held her hand out and several of them gave her "five" with their big gloves on. She thought that was AWESOME!

Nathan and Brian went to the same game! Nathan LOVED it!!! They went for a Cub Scout requirement. Otherwise, Brian would never have gone. :)
