popping my hockey cherry
between coming down from my Phillies high and realizing that the Eagles once again suck balls, i figured it was a good time to make my way to a Flyers game! actually, i'd be lying if i said it was my idea to go but regardless, i was more than excited for the opportunity.
i thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. the Wachovia center is really nice - feels pretty small inside but in a cozy, city of brotherly love kind of way. other bonuses include
-quick beer service
-short bathroom lines
the smoking area did come around to bite me in the ass however when i missed the winning play of the game. being new the whole hockey thing, we thought we had time for a quick cig before overtime. so ya know, we're just hanging out, smoking a cig when all of a sudden people start pouring out of the stadium.
the funny part is when we asked someone what happened they told us "So and So scored! woo!". now, i have absolutely no idea who that So and So was or what team he was on so after a quick scan of said person's outfit, it was safe to assume that So and So was indeed a Flyers player and that we just won the game. yay!
