A neighbor boy of ours is in the 1st grade (I think) and plays hockey. His team got to play between the 2nd and 3rd periods of the Philadelphia Phantoms’ game tonight and Katie, Todd and I went to watch. Not only did we get to watch Alex and the rest of his team out on the ice, but we got to see the Phantoms play for $10.00 a ticket! You can’t beat that.
Next Sunday Katie and I are going into the city for a girls’ day out after church. We’ll have a nice lunch at a fine restaurant and then gain some refinement as we watch the Pennsylvania Ballet dance The Nutcracker. As one of the players was doubling over after what looked to be a rather painful crotch shot Katie said, “We don’t have to go to the ballet next week. We can see the nutcracker right here.” Whose kid is she???
Alex’s team was fun to watch. Even at that young of an age their skating skills amaze me. And then the way they’re able to maneuver the hockey sticks. Remarkable.
By the end of the game Katie was nearly hoarse from yelling. I love watching her at a hockey or football game. She gets so into it and it’s just so much fun.
I hadn’t actually planned on blogging tonight but I had to share Katie’s comment. Now I’m going to bed so I have the energy to fill in tomorrow at preschool.
