Last Saturday we went to an Amarillo Gorillas hockey game. It was the first time I had ever been to a hockey game, and it was a lot of fun! It is such a fast moving sport. I had a hard time keeping up with where the puck was some of the time.
The Air Force was sponsoring the game Saturday so we got to go for free! That made it even better! :o) During the break between periods Tony had to help with the entertainment. He said that it was a good thing he didn't know about that before we went. I told him that I still would have made him take me. :o) There were several people that are in the DEP (Delayed Entry Program) at the game. During the first break they had to form two teams and throw water balloons across the ice with big sling shots. At the other end of the rink someone had a bucket trying to catch the balloon. It was pretty funny, and Tony's team ended up winning, so we got a gift card to a pizza restaurant.
The Gorillas lost, 7-8. It was still a really good game though, they really fought for it at the end. I was disappointed to find out that it was the last game of the season...so it will be awhile before I can go again. :o) I told Tony that one good thing about Amarillo is that it is a big enough town to have a baseball, hockey, and arena football team, yet small enough that the people really get into supporting the teams.
It was a great date night, and Tony's first time doing anything associated with the Air Force-even though it was just having fun!
