About the Hockey Game

If you don’t give a rat’s ass about hockey, or sports in general, stop now!

I am normally a season ticket holder. I was broke when the playoff tickets went on sale, and so found someone who (a) wanted the lot, and (b) wants to split next year. Way cool. I didn’t expect the Hurricanes to go to game six of the playoffs – as an eighth seed, that’s unheard of. (OK, this is the tenth team in history to force a game six after starting the series down three games)

So anyway, Dad calls up and says “can you get tickets for tomorrow?” Oh yeah. In the expensive or the nosebleed sections. Guess which I chose?

We sat in Section 202 – that’s the Club mezzanine, and those seats kick ass. A waiter if we want it, there’s a full bar on the refreshments area, and you can see the whole ice at once.

The New Jersey Devils proceeded to hand our asses to us, which is what should have happened Wednesday in game four.

I can give you a critique of how and where the hurricanes blew this one, but I won’t. I will say that their goalie, Arturs Irbe, is going to catch some flack for this loss, when he’s been carrying the for the past two games.

I hope like hell we re-sign him, and get some better defensive players. But since they’ve got until August to work that out (training camp), I’m not worried. I’ll just root for Toronto to beat the shit out of the Devils in round two *grin*

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
