Getting cozy with some hockey!

Against my wife’s preference, I’ve ordered the NHL center ice package this year. That means I can watch just about every NHL game that’s on throughout the season (hence my wife not wanting the package).

As much as I hate disappointing her, I am very excited about the season and having the package. I’ve always been a bit of a closet hockey fan (I went to a ton of minor league games as a kid and was even in a local commercial back then for the Erie Otters).

For one reason or another though, I’ve never fully gotten into the pro season - I think because of the sheer length and depth of the season. But this year, I’m playing in my first ever fantasy hockey league.

Which, as it turns out, was all I needed to be turned into full blown hockey fan boy…at least for now!

Anyway - tonight marks my first night with the package (and discounting some overseas games this past weekend, tonight is the start of the reg. NHL season). So I’m excited and enjoying it so far.

We’ll see how long it lasts - but for now, GAME ON.
