Hockey is really big right now with the anticipation of Sunday’s USA-Canada gold medal final in the Olympics. Its been a while since I’ve gone to a game, so I went to watch our local minor league hockey team, the Tulsa Oilers, play the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs at the BOK Center. I took the kids and their friends. Oilers’ owner Jeff Lund was generous enough to invite Michelle and me to watch from his suite.
Chris Lincoln (our sports director) and wife Becky were also there. It was their anniversary. Chris, you really know how to impress a girl. Hockey and beer will do it everytime.
It was NewsChannel 8 night. Among other things, that meant meeting hockey fans who are also NewsChannel 8 fans. But the highlight had to be meeting these Mudbug groupies:
One of the ladies was determined to show me her new tattoo. She called it her victory tat following the Saints Super Bowl win. I saw more of her behind than I really cared to. So that’s what a mudbug looks like. My kids ended up sitting right behind them. I hear they put on almost as good a show as the players did.
Oh yeah, the game. It was awesome! But the Oilers lost 4-3 in overtime. Too bad. I had my victory tattoo already picked out. Here are the highlights:
I just love a good fight!
