Two nights ago I went to see the Thrashers, the Atlanta hockey team, play against the Washington Capitals. I was invited by some good friends of mine, who got me amazing seats - front row, against the glass. It was basically a chance to see football on ice. They won 7-4 when nobody expected them to, and although the stands weren't full, there were plenty of diehard fans there to cheer them on. They pulled out a great win. I had never really been into hockey before, but I am now. It was just so impressive to see the athleticism they have on those skates. It was obvious that I wasn't too familiar with the sport, though. I kept yelling "Stop the ball!" and my friends had to remind that it was called a puck. Overall, it was an awesome experience, though it was a little lame that toward the end of the game one of the huge Washington ogres picked a with our star rookie, who was much smaller. I was just thinking how funny it would be if in the NFL they allowed us 20 second fights with anyone we picked out on the opposing team. That would cause a whole lot of chaos. At one point they recognized me - had me on the jumbotron and everything, and they wished me luck against the Bears this weekend. That's when I told them that we were going to beat Chicago, which is exactly what we just did.
