Are you kidding me? Another post about hockey?

Yep... we got to go to another Stanley Cup playoff game last night!
Ticketmaster, it seems, releases tickets in waves and if you are lucky enough to log on at the right time you can buy tickets... and for face value! So, the kids and I got to go to our second playoff game... it was even better than the first round! We went early, at the same time as hubby so that we could secure a spot in the "super secret" parking location that he and a few co-workers got hooked up with early in the season. We had a blast. Before the game the kids got their faces painted (I may have gotten a small piece of artwork painted on my face as well...) and then went in to hubby's area where he bought us nachos and sodas. And not the cheap concession's nachos, but the deluxe "club" (read snooty "club level ticket holder only" ) nachos, loaded with chicken, cheese, sour cream, olives, salsa.... yum! The kids went down to the ice level to watch warm-ups and were rewarded for their incessant banging on the glass when none other than Jonathon Cheecho came over and smacked (would have scared the shit out of me, but they loved it) the boards with his stick right where they were standing.

The game was fabulous and so exciting with the huge (and extremely loud) crowd. We screamed, we yelled, we rejoiced in victory! I was still re-living the glorious moments this morning but was soon smacked strait back into the reality, that is my life, by my youngest when he asked me "Remember all that laundry you did Saturday? Well, our basket is full again."

Yes, I know. I'll start it all over again tomorrow. Sigh.

Whoa! That is way too cool! I am so glad you are being able to experience the thrill of playoffs live! You must be having to peel your kids off the ceiling! Just awesome!

Yes! It is way cool. We are a bit obsessed right now. In fact I'm writing another post about that this week!
