For Christmas, I bought my hubby two tickets to see the Atlanta Thrashers play the Carolina Hurricanes at last night's game. They weren't just any tickets, though. They were sixth row from the ice, right behind the goal. If you ever get the chance to have seats like these at a hockey game, go for it! There is nothing that makes the whole hockey experience like sitting this close to all the action. Not only do you see the players up close and personal, but you get the full sound of the puck hitting the glass and the incredible view of the puck flying right into the goal. Heck, you even get to see the players' faces smash against the glass, complete with flying saliva as they make an "oomph" sound on impact while being slammed into the wall by another player. And it's right where all the good fights take place.
I took these pictures during their practice time, shortly before the game began. In the one where you can see the wall at the bottom of the pic, my camera wasn't even zoomed in. They were awesome seats! And, as you can tell by the pic of my hubby and me, we were decked out in our hockey jerseys and hats for our big date.
