Well, I'm out in Colorado for fire training and part of the bucket list is to hit a game in every rink. Would be preferable if it were a Wings game, but when someone else is footing the travel bill, I can't be choosy.
At least the Avs are playing my home state team - the Preds.
Just picked up 4 - 8th row seats in the corner where the Preds shoot twice for $31/ticket. Face value of over $100 each..
Apparently no one wants to see the Avs/Preds on a Tuesday night.
Sacrifices have to be made and I agree with the footing the bill. I delayed an install as it was going to be during a week the wings were traveling got the company to fly me up scored tickets at the Joe and even got to expense them as I took the client to the game. Win, Win, Win
Flight from Atl to DTW 300
Seats 8 rows behind opposing bench 200
Buying wings stuff over 200 at Hockey Authentics
Rags getting beat priceless
Coming back to Det after 5 years also priceless
Quoting myself lol
God I miss coming to games live slow start by the boys. Had me worried but dang killing back to back 5 on 3s actually 5 on 2 for 30 secs was flipping AWESOME. Great energy in the building see ya live in the spring should the streak keep rolling
Now off to see if I can be as lucky at the casino!!!
Every time I say something isn't working on this team, they turn around and make it work. Inconsistency? They win four in a row. Too many centers on the team? Offense starts scoring like gangbusters. Powerplay's a mess? Top ten in the league.
So I guess what I'm saying is...they will absolutely, positively, not win the Stanley Cup in decisive fashion in front of a home crowd while Kid Rock and I are in the front row (surrounded by strippers) getting hammered drunk. Nope, not at all.
The Wings could have the spawn of Terry Sawchuk and Dominik Hasek in net and there would be those wings fans that would complain that they are terrible. Its called "next goalie up'itis" and it has plagued Wings fans for years despite 4 Stanley Cups. There is no known cure....
Right now I would settle for the spawn of Gordie and Terrible Ted. Wonder how many stitches PK would have today if we had that spawn....
