The State of Hockey

Growing up in Minnesota, I was surrounded by hockey.  It is, of course, the state  Hockey is literally everywhere!  Now saying that, I had never really been that interested in hockey.  I mean, I went to my high school hockey games for pep band, and I had several friends who played on the hockey teams, but it was never anything I was really into.

Up until the other day, when my mom got free club level tickets to the Minnesota Wild hockey game.  I actually had a pretty good time.  The seats were in the club level (so basically up a little ways, but not at the top of the arena), so the view was pretty good.  It was also VERY LOUD.  Everything was loud.  The music, the sound effects, the cheers, everything.  My ears were ringing afterwards.  It was very theatrical, in my opinion, complete with flashing lights, horns, and fog.  It was actually kind of funny.

The people were also very...enthusiastic.  That is the only word I can use without offending anybody.  Loud, but I know it was with passion for their team.

We won, which made it more fun!!  I would definitely go to another hockey game in the future!
