Do me a favor, if I die from a snowplow incident, make sure someone comes along and deletes this blog post because it was apparent that I tempted fate one too many times. Anyway kudos to me as I achieved my “Southerner living in Sub Artic Temp” badge as 17 degrees with a wind that can cut you to the bone wasn’t pleasant but I survived. Sure I must give a huge shout out to Under Armor Winter Gear, all of those wool animals who died to keep my arse warm and North Face for some warm gloves. I bopped around the Garment District all day yesterday with two reps and as one of the reps whose parents live in Minnesota said to me; “This time of the year we wear sleeping bags” and was she right.
So what did a kid who only read about frigid temp in the news do to celebrate his first Yankee Milestone? Head to Madison Square Garden to watch the New York Rangers Hockey Team play the Dallas Stars! My first NHL Hockey contest game competition match, I was excited! Now I will have to come full disclosure; thanks to my employer, we were able to enjoy one of the luxury suites, closed circuit TV’s, great buffet, ice cold drinks and a in-suite bathroom. Did it bother me that the suite was larger than my apartment? Dude it Madison Square M’Effin Garden, who cares! The sporting contest (still don’t know if I call it a match or game) was great and the Rangers smoked the Stars 6 to 2, I actually learned what offside was, and that high sticking is considered bad. Just You Wait till I paint my face ala Puddy next time. “Gotta Support The Team, Let Them Know You Are Out There!”
Got to Love the Graphics they put on the ice during intermission and Pre-Game!
My Ice Hockey Translator – “No CBT you don’t call the Hogs before the drop of the puck!”
Before a Face off – “Pick up your bottom Jaws you hockey followers”
I couldn’t name one player but there is always next time
6-2 is good right? You said this was a low scoring game…
Everybody gets laid!
Wait till I take Mrs. Trumpet to one of these games, she will love it!
