OK--those of you who know me well know that i have absolutely no clue about anything related to sports. i never know what season we are in for which sport or any players or if the game has innings or time outs or quarters or overtime, blah, blah, blah. i don't play sports, i don't attend hardly any live sporting events and i certainly never, ever watch sports on tv. however tonight i attended my very first hockey game. it was killer dude. prescott now has a semi-pro hockey team and a stadium in prescott valley and our good friend had a suite tonight and invited our family to go. so all of us went--6 girls and david. even my sweet little haley was doing the wave and clapping and throwing her arms up in the air when they scored a goal. and i was starting to get a little upset when we entered the 2nd quarter and no fighting had erupted. isn't hockey all about the fighting? not to worry--late in the 2nd quarter a few fights broke out and by the 3rd quarter there was a full blown helmets and gloves off knock down fist fight and our player got ejected from the game. which we won, 8-3. life is good. happy new years eve everyone and have a wonderful year in 2007...L

HORRAY for fights! hahaha

oh and just to set you straight. Hockey has 3 PERIODS. You're so cute :)

Football has 4 quaurters.
Baseball has 9 innings.

Beth will have to tell you what soccer does....2 halves I think.

I say all that knowing full well you don't give a damn LOL

Beth said...

Yup- two halves for soccer. Unless you're under 10- they have four quarters... ;)

So glad you went to a hockey game and enjoyed it, Lisa! For your next event, I think you should try curling. :)

Hockey is a good time if there is a couple of blood baths! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Tammi

Oh I love going to watch hockey!! It helps to settle that inner aggression.

I'm with you on the sports thing. Luckily I married a man with pretty much the same thoughts on sports that don't involve some sort of horsepower. Although, I have to admit that I like basketball. Sshhh!
