I was hooked….from the very first hockey game I watched on TV to the first live game I saw at the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh. Hockey is without a doubt THE MOST EXCITING game to watch (or play if you’ve had the opportunity).
Growing up in southeastern Ohio during the ’70s, we had more ice in the icebox than outside to hockey on. So a group of us formed a street hockey club, play in the parking lots; playing the local college frats. We didn’t care – we just loved playing hockey!
I subscribed to The Hockey News, reading up on NHL action every week; going to the mall book store and buying every hockey book I could find. Then, my junior year in in high school , my Mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday – tickets to see the Flyers play the Pittsburgh Penguins! I called the Penguin ticket office asking for a pair of tickets closest to the ice as possible. My Mom and I ended up sitting second row from the glass right by the face off circle! This was such an amazing birthday gift!
If you LOVE hockey but never watched a live game before, call me during the lunch hour when you hear me play the Zamboni song and I’ll get you registered for our Red Wings Ticket Giveaway. You have the chance to win 4 tickets second row, right behind the goal to the Dec. 18th game against the Vancouver Canucks! Also we are giving away Riverfront Executive Parking Pass, Olympia Club Passes, Four Red Wings Scarves and Chucks courtesy of Miller Lite, and Bayside Beverage, a Division of Great Lakes Wine and Spirits!
