• Not old time hockey

    Avs vs StarsThanks to Sonya, my need to attend my first NHL game has been met. Hockey has been a sport that I have followed and dipped into time and again since High School. Never actually played it other than some pick up pond games on the weekend, but going to amateur games has been something that has been done almost on a yearly basis since High School. Out of all the pro sports in the USA, hockey would be my first choice to see live.

    Pepsi Arena PanoWe had good seats...center ice....able to see everything. No complaints here! Now, need to see about getting down next to the glass for a game.

    The opening show. It's like Disney on Ice....minus the scary costumes, tights, and fairy wings.

    Avs vs StarsGame on! Stars scored first, then the Avs had to play catch up most of the game. There were no bloody knuckle fights....but almost. Our seats for the night were the hot spot area to be seated in. Lots of super fans.....LOTS! Sonya got some kid on cam yelling all game. Kind'a funny actually.

    Time for a 'Super Pretzel'! Sonya was so excited she couldn't sit still for the photo....hence the blur. I tell ya....too fast to catch on film. Look out female mtb racers in 2009!

    Avs vs StarsNo 'Flying V' at this game.

    Avs vs StarsAv's win!
