So, last night we headed out to our first hockey at the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati. I was pleased at how easy it was to get there and get parked. There was plenty of parking in the garage very close to the arena. This was good since it was cold out and everyone knows how much I hate the cold. Getting into the arena and to our seats was easy. All the employees were friendly and cheerful.
There was definitely excitement in the air, and I noticed right away that the girls picked up on the the vibes. Their faces looked eager. Since it was Kids Jersey T-shirt Night, they each got a free t-shirt on the way in.
As the game was about to start, most all the lights went off, creating a fun, dark atmosphere for a minute before they came back on with upbeat music. Throughout the game, fun music played on and off; songs from back in mom and dad's day to songs kids love today. I heard Journey Don't Stop Believing as well as Gangnam Style. And when Gangnam Style played, I think every kid in the arena was out of their seats dancing.
And of course, what would an ice hockey game be without a fight and someone sitting in the penalty box? That being said, there was just one fight, nothing over the top. Overall, the quality of play was good.
