Catching Up

I need to start posting here again.  I am currently in the middle of a vacation in Mississippi where I have been touring the Mississippi Blues Trail Marker Tour www.msbluestrail.org.  I will be posting pics from the trip here or on a new website.

2014-10-21 Flyers vs Blackhawks

Earlier this week, I was lucky enough to be able to head to the United Center to watch the Flyers play the Blackhawks.  We had great seats thanks to my buddy Dave.   Unfortunately, the Flyers didn't bother showing up, and were down 3-0 pretty quickly.  Bad game.  Great fun.

Wolves v Admirals 2014-02-15

A few weekends ago, we went with our neighbors to see the Chicago Wolves vs Milwaukee Admirals. Before the game, we went to the RAM Brewery and Restaurant.  We like that place.  The food is pretty good and they have great beers.

The hockey game was pretty close throughout.  Unfortunately, Chicago blew a lead late in the game, and then lost in OT.

Philadelphia Flyers vs Minnesota Wild 2013-12-23

While I was back in PA for the Christmas holiday, I went to catch a Flyers game with my cousin Jody.  I was amazed out how cool the Xfinity Live was.  We had a beer at each bar in the place before we headed to the arena.  We headed back there after the game too.  I could go to a hockey game and be satisfied watching it on TVs there without having a ticket for the game. Had a chance to drink some good micro brews too.

It was a great game too.  The Flyers came out of the gate strong.  Wayne Simmonds had two goals and it was the first of three games in a row that he did that.  Got some decent pics too considering we were in the last row of the arena.
