Last saturday night I hung out with some of our high school students. We rode the Max down to Lloyd Center where we had dinner and then headed over to the crap hole..I mean, um... that is the Coliseum to watch the Winterhawks play. Sorry, I shouldn't say that about our beloved Coliseum but it really is not a great place to go anymore. They don't really take that great care of it and haven't even updated their Big tv thing that hangs in the middle of the stadium (check out above picture). It's still one of those screens with all the little bulbs that only puts up messages (no live shots of the game, nada) and all the lights aren't even in working order. Poor Winterhawks. Oh, and the bathrooms are really poorly designed as well.
All in all, it was a really fun night. It was fun to hang out with everyone and I forgot how much fun it is to watch hockey. It really is one of the only sports that I can actually sit through (more in person than on tv though) and enjoy. Here are a few pictures from our little night out.
Just so you know, the popcorn that is pictured here does not belong to anyone in our group. It actually belongs to the man that is sitting in the seat next to it in the row in front of us. I thought it looked gross, all buttery and sticking the bottom of the bucket but Brad, who was sitting next to me said it looked really yummy and he really wanted to eat it. I, being the bad mentor that I am, encouraged this terrible behavior and told him to take some. As you can see, he didn't really need much encouragment. Also, if your curious, he said the nasty looking popcorn tasted great. We have some funny kids in our group.
