I’ve been quiet today, but I had a good reason.
Tonight was hockey night in Montréal. I usually watch the games at home, on tv. Occasionally, we book a table at a restaurant who presents it on large screens. But this evening, we had tickets to go see the game live at Bell Center, home of the Canadiens.
I had a thought for Anne, from Horse Addict, for some reason. I’ll let you guess why! It is not a usual sight, especially during winter, and I couldn’t keep myself from giving these two beauties a nice pat, before running to the Bell Center door.
We attend live games once or twice a year, and when we do, we usually get seats way up in the arena. So way up that the players look like tiny action figures. It is still fun, but tonight we had excellent places a lot closer to the ice rink. It was so cool, that I got chills as soon as the players jumped on the ice. Hockey is almost a religion here, and the crowd was electrified, even if this was just the warm up!
Here’s the last thing I recorded. I just wanted to give you a taste of the ambiance in Bell Center, when the guys are on the rink. After that, I just enjoyed the game… No more picture taking, just plain fun rooting for our team!
Oh, and they won! Go Habs go!
