I completed this with the help of BHW and his best friend MCE!
A little back story; I spent my Saturday outside in a blizzard playing ultimate frisbee in Cincinnati Ohio, and my phone had died during the night. On the way back to Ball State, I turned my phone on to see if I had any battery life left. While looking at the blinking empty battery light on my phone I got a text from BHW that said 'Call me ASAP :)' and then the screen went black. I borrowed a friends phone to call my boyfriend back, surprisingly I got his number right on the first try.
He picked up and told me that by luck of the draw, he had received some tickets to a
Miami of Ohio hockey game for free! He also said he knew I'd be tired from the tournament but that he also knew 'go to a hockey game' was on my bucket list.
If you don't know BHW he is SO not spontaneous so I was shocked to get this last minute invitation, he's such a sweetie. I convinced my teammates to drop me off at BHW's parent's house on the way home from our tournament and BHW would meet me there and we'd head off to the game with MCE! (Thanks teammates for dropping me off!) I tried to get a little nap in before the game but I was too excited for the hockey game! We got to the game and our seats were only 3 rows back! I couldn't contain my excitement, I had to get popcorn, it just felt right for my first ever hockey game!
No, I didn't know any of the rules, I freaked out when people started throwing each other into
the walls! The only hockey related thing I've ever seen is the Mighty Ducks, and that was years ago.
BHW said to keep my eyes on the puck at all times because we were right at the level where the pucks come flying! We actually came close to getting hit once! It was a little exciting. haha. I got to see a Zambonie too! It was so cool to see them make the ice all shiny and 'new' again.
Well, I won't go into all the details but the game was SO awesome! Miami won with a score of 4-1!
Thanks again BHW and MCE for taking me to my first hockey game.
