Actually going to HSBC Arena for actual hockey!

by Anne

Because I'm hella lame I have a full time job that, ya know, asks that I be at work during the day, I haven't been able to attend any of the training camp festivities and I think I'm just about ready to break out in hives or start shaking from withdrawal. Therefore I put my foot down and decided to go to this weekend's pre-season game and ogle the red carpet and try not to pass out from the sheer joy of being back in the freezing cold arena smelling the ice, drinking giant beers.

It may only be pre-season but it's still a hockey game! I'm excited. At least one friend and I are going, I'm thinking about buying three tickets and convincing someone else to go with us because the more the merrier, right?

Decisions, decisions. What to do, what to do... Update: I bought three tickets. I hope someone else is free, lol. Update #2: I bought four and they're all spoken for.

Last night I was perusing various NHL ticket websites, starting to develop an eye twitch over the fact that I still don't have tickets to the Kings game on 11/19. I'm trying not to be a pest but, MOM, BIRTHDAY PRESENT. BIRTHDAY WAS IN JULY. SHAKE A LEG. If you know Peg, give her a call and ask where my tickets at.

I've contemplated buying them myself and having her pay me back for them. I almost did last night but I couldn't find tickets worth paying $200 for. I want to get them before the season starts because I have this irrational fear the Kings will be good this year and no one will be re-selling their tickets in October. I've got my eye on a pair on Stubhub that no one best buy before I gets to.

I wish I had more interesting things to write abouuuuuuuuut. I will starting Saturday! WOOOOO!!!
