Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting

Saturday night I went to a hockey game in Memphis (technically Southaven, MS) to see the RiverKings play against the Youngstown Steelhounds. It was a fine time. Fun was had by all.

The game was tied 4-4 and went into sudden death overtime. That didn’t help the score any, but the shootout did. The RiverKings wound up winning 5-4 in the shootout. There weren’t really any fights–damned refs jumping in and stopping them–but it was still an enjoyable time.

Hockey SwagI got some free junk while I was there: a Mr. Potato Head hockey player (complete with extra face with missing tooth) and a bobblehead of one of the players (since I went with a group).

The last time that I went to a hockey game I think it was 1997. I went with a friend’s church group. We got to play “broomball” on the ice (hockey with a ball and brooms instead of pucks and sticks) and one girl fell forward and smacked her braces on the ice. She picked herself up, though, and kept going. What a trooper. Anyway, it was fun ten years ago and it was fun Saturday night.
