HOCKEY TOWN!!

My sister Danielle was able to score a couple Red Wing tickets for us. The only downside of this was the tickets were for a Wednesday night and we live about 3.5 hours away....hhhhmmmm...what to do. Well, it is the Wings and nothing beats a great hockey game so we took a half of day of work on Wednesday and went to the game.

Here we are at my sister's bar--Foran's Irish Pub...best food and beer in Detroit... (pic taken by her) getting ready to go to the game:Our seats were in section 207. Good seats, high enough up that we could see all of the ice, which was a nice bonus. All these pics were taken with my Canon G5 point and shoot. It zoomed in pretty good:
Gotta love the Zambonis:

The game was great, fast moving and entertaining. I was a little disappointed that no fights broke out (just kidding). It was an aggressive game though and the Wings pulled through to win 6-2. The drive back was long, arrived home around 1:30 a.m. and had to get up and go to work the next day---6 a.m. comes quick when you're tired :( We will definitely go to another game, next time though I think we will try for weekend tickets.
