5 years in the making


2 Carne Asada Burritos with drinks...$12.00
2 Tickets to the game purchased from a sketchy lookin' dude in the parking lot $100.00
1 Hot Cocoa, 1 Bag Peanuts, 1 Diet Pepsi...lord knows how much
Finally getting to that Hockey Game?...PRICELESS



*I also discovered the most demeaning job for women in the sporting world..."ice girls"...now how would it look if the NBA sent a bunch of females out to sweep the courts between periods? What? That would seem misogynistic in some way? Well...apparently in Hockey its some kind of honor to dress up in a skimpy little uniform and skate around the rink hunched over like Quasimoto over a snow shovel while the guys get some water.

I think that maybe the ring girls for boxing are just as demeaning.

I've only been to two hockey games, and one was on Valentine's Day, where like 15 couples got married on the ice. Weird.

There are girls who'll want to do anything. A girl in #3's 3rd gr class wanted to do her report on the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. Unfortunately we couldn't find a book about them in the library. Runner-up topic was horses. Found a book, which had a picture of a mare and her nursing foal on the cover. The girl said, "Ew, that's so gross! I don't want THAT book." So nature, ick. Short skirts, tight sweaters and fake boobs, that's the American dream, man.

I went to a hockey game with my hubby when we were engaged. It was fun. But they didn't have the girls cleaning the ice. They had a zamboni.
