When I saw that the weekly photo challenge at WordPress this week was forward, I was a bit stumped. Then I got a phone call. It was a neighbor. They have four tickets and a parking pass to the St. Louis Blues game on Saturday, we can have them if we can go. So, it was decision time. On one hand it is a no brainer, we in this household love hockey. The seats are in the “you can actually see the players” section. Yes, we are going. On the other hand, we are not really over the lockout. I love hockey but not the NHL, which is problematic.
I love this game, so I am moving forward (sort of) from the lockout. The bottom line is though, I’m not a fan of the NHL. I don’t appreciate the way the lockout was handled. This season we have enjoyed our hockey at local arenas. We are happy to hear that the St. Charles Chill will be the new team in town as of next season. We are excited to check them out.
Got some pretty good shots from last night though:
The Scoreboard before the game.
Halak warming up.
A face-off in front of the home team net.
So. IL Ice Hawks Mite level play the intermission.
Blues win 2-1! and salute the fans
