There may be no NHL hockey and that continues to make me uber sad, but last night, Patrick and I had a glimmer of hockey night in Canada again when we had the fortune to head out to a local QMJHL game last night.
The first level of awesomeness was that it was live hockey.
That was followed by the fact that we were getting out like a “normal” couple.
The best part was that the local team from our home town was playing the team that calls the rink down the road from our apartment home. And we opted to cheer for our home-home team, despite thus being against the 8000ish other who were rooting for the local-home team.
In other coolness, it was the teddy bear toss for Ronald McDonald house. Nothing better than projectile bears for a good time.
It was wonderful being normal people. And being able to cheer (okay, I don’t really cheer ever, so it was more clapping with the occasional high five and woot) for our home-home team. Plus, it was actual hockey!
A great spot to a much needed weekend off.
