As I said when I announced the winner of the iTrip Auto contest I was going to the hockey game. If you are new to this blog then you don’t know that I am a HUGE hockey fan. I played hockey all through high school and have been watch hockey as long as I can remember. For a while hockey was kind of sad here in Pittsburgh, we were at the bottom of the NHL each year, but after the lockout we were lucky enough to get Sidney Crosby and now we have Evgeni Malkin and Marian Hossa. So hockey is real big in Pittsburgh now, we have sold out every home game this season!
Since every game is sold out it is really hard to get tickets. Luckily my friend’s dad’s company has season tickets, so we are able to go to 4-5 games a year. What is even better is that the seats are in the Igloo club. The Igloo club is a section of seats on each side of the rink right at center ice. These seats carry a premium, not only because of their location, but also there is special Igloo Club lounge area. This area has a full bar, concessions, and private bathrooms.
The game was on a Sunday afternoon and it was against the Rangers. For some reason it seems we always have trouble with the Rangers, but today we dominated. They had an early 1-0 lead, but we took that away and won the game 3-1. Watching players like Crosby, Malkin, and Hossa play together is just amazing, no wonder why the Pens have sold out every home game this season.
I made a video of my time at the game, enjoy.
