Mucking in the corners proves fun

112307_13411.jpgI went to an NHL game today and I think I would go back.

The Bruins beat the Islanders 2-1 before a noon crowd of 17,565 at the new Garden. I know zippo about hockey, but neither team strikes me as being a contender. Although the Bruins have a 6-foot-9 defenseman. He looks enormous out there.

I’m fairly certain I attended a Bruins game when I was 9 or 10 but I can’t remember much of it. I’ve since attended a bunch of college and minor-league games. Hockey is fun to watch in person and a great excuse to drink beer.

A few things that struck me: Other than goals, the crowd only cheered when there were fights or scraps. … They use two zambonis during intermission and kids can ride them. How great is that? … We had club seats, which were pretty interesting. Great view, obviously, and Sam Adams Lite was available. But there were all manner of guys in suits. I assume they had skipped out of work. But, still, suits at a hockey game? That doesn’t seem right. … At the end of the game, they announced the three “stars of the game” and each guy skated over to the glass and gave a kid a stick. I though that was cool.
