My work weeks have been so intense of late, that I have totally just wanted to do a whole lot of NOTHIN on the weekend's but when Mary called and asked if we wanted to go to a CRUNCH game, I was ready for some fun.
It think the Crunch player won this round...
He is giving me the evil eye!
Do you see this guy making his way in the crowd wearing the white, blue and yellow chief jersey? Below is a better picture...Well back in the 70's the movie Slapshop, with Paul Newman was filmed here.
I guess this guy and his two friends are keeping the film alive. (Okay so Syracuse only has a few famed moments..what can I say.)
Mary and I purchased plastic pucks to throw on the ice to win a prize. You win if you are the closest puck to the center. We did not win....but we had fun throwing the pucks.
Speaking of pucks....several got stuck in the netting here and the plexi glass fell out of the track a few times too. Apparently someone has been struck by a puck and they have put up netting and ushers make people wait to walk around if the game is in action. Makes it a slim change that you are gonna catch a puck for a souvenir.
It used to be this Ice gorilla or abominable snowman like guy. I don't get why these things change all the time. Just leave the tradition....Gee!
It was a great game! Everyone had fun and The Crunch WON!!!! Great night.
