Last week a generous friend gave me 4 tickets to a Carolina Hurricane’s game. (Complete with parking pass, I might add.) He had won them at a golf tournament and mentioned that he thought they would be pretty good seats.


We 7 rows off of the ice with a great view of the crease on one end.

It was pretty amazing to see the speed and size differentials of the players up close.

I’ve been to four NHL games since I’ve been in Raleigh and each time I’m stunned by the energy the crowd generates when the team is playing well.

The end result didn’t favor our guys, but we had a great time anyway.

Here are a couple of shots. Sorry for the foggy pics. Guess all that lint in my pocket has found it’s way onto my phone’s camera lens.

Some action at our end
