Hockey is my absolute FAVORITE sport and cannot wait to see what this season has in store for our Jackets! My dad has owned season tickets for several years but decided to give them up this year because he was not very happy with how they have played the last few seasons. He felt like it was a waste of money to go watch a team that quite frankly, sucked! Fair weather fan? Not really...when you put so much money (& time..LOTS of time) into something, you'd like to see positive results at least SOMETIMES. He got fed up with their losing record and decided to spend his hard earned money on something else. That is...for about a couple of days. He caved. Apparently he missed having something to do two or three nights a week during hockey season! He renewed his PSL under one condition...if we split the cost 3 ways with. The tickets have been divided among himself (& my mom but she doesn't really enjoy hockey much), Matt and I, and my brother and his wife. Fair enough! We have been spoiled by getting free tickets from him long enough, it is time to contribute!
Matt and I will be going to our FIRST game of the season tomorrow. We are really looking forward to it. Rick Nash (our fabulous captain) is pictured below. Wouldn't you be excited to go see this guy skate across the ice for a couple of hours? ;)
If you are thinking, "Uh, what's so great about him?"....you should see him in person. Perhaps this picture does not do him justice :) No worries...hubs knows about my slight crush on him.
We are also looking forward to visiting Matt's family in his hometown this weekend! His parents live about an hour and a half away from where we live. Although we saw them a week or so ago, we are anxious to travel to them this time because it has been a while since we've been there!
