I went to a hockey game…pause….. and I liked it!
(kudos to you if you just got the Katy Perry song in your head like I just did!)
So here is how it went down
Left work early with a skip in my step because a) who doesn’t love leaving work an hour early and b) my knee was acting up from insanity and skipping helps
Picked Dave up and gave the furry monster instructions to be good on her sleepover at Nana and Papas, she just seemed more concerned that we wouldn’t forget to give her a treat when we left, my dog as priorities
Stopped for a super quick gourmet dinner at Whole Foods and split our usual Turkey and Brie Panini with Organic salt and pepper chips and a new to us calorie free cola that wasn’t that great
Next up the GO train, we are small city folks and taking the train for us is F-U-N, brought back fond Italy train memories, and we were disappointed chocolate covered biscuits weren’t included in our journey but then neither was snotty Italian train conductors so we came to terms with it
We also eat Crème Brulet on trains and make sad faces when its all gone, THEN we take photos of the sad faces – I have to make this some time, any recipes for me?
Once in Toronto we wandered around a while then found our seats, too… .many…. stairs….. don’t they know we are in the middle of Insanity?
After we were seated, I prayed to the high heaven no one would sit in front of us – this guy did and had the nerve to put his coat over his chair in my foot space, I had some choice words for him which had Dave amused for the whole game, I’m bitter like that and brought it up all the way into the third period
Now THIS GUY was Ob-box-ious but really, whats a hockey game without really drunk yelling dudes?
Now part TWO of my hockey post, Ready for it?
Aka: Hockey Terms Made Up By Donna
Real Term: Checking
My Term: They do this way more then necessary and lets just call it what it is… VERTICAL HUMPING
Real Term: Playing hockey
My Term: I know this shows total disrespect for the game but there seems to be a lot of flailing around, I call it PUSH AND PRAY because essentially this what they do with the puck
Real Term: Referees
My Term: The dude in they way of the play all the time aka: THE HAMBURGLER
Real Term: Periods (don’t worry I’m not going there)
My Term: Never ending TIME WARPS – its not just three periods people it’s a whole lotta pre-game, then the 20 minute period takes like 40 minutes then there is the two 16 or 17 minute “intermissions” , thats a REALLY long time for someone with a teeny tiny bladder to not go wee (in case you are wondering that person is me!)
MY SUMMARY: So much fun, Would totally go again and I really love doing new things with Dave and cursing out random strangers who have coats with boundary issues
DAVES SUMMARY: The train was fun and i had lots of fun baby, can i go back to my iPad now?….. (i waited for more but apparently that was all he had, BOYS)
