Remember the Time We Pretended to be Rangers Fans?

Anthony and I went to a NY Rangers hockey game last night with friends.  I'd never been to Madison Square Garden, and I'd never been to a Rangers game since Anthony is a huge Islanders fan and I've become one too since we have been together.  New York City was crazy because of St. Patrick's Day, but we had a great time (and yes, we cheered for the home team, which kind of hurt a little). 

Our seats were awesome.  We were in the front row of the mezzanine where the seats are cushioned and there were televisions right in front of us so that we could watch the replays.  I shared beer with Anthony (so deliciously cold) and we chowed on popcorn.  Also, Cuba Gooding Jr. was in the arena and hyped up the fans during the second and third period. 

Final thoughts: I wish the home team won, and I wish there were a few more fights on the ice, although the crowd was pretty rowdy itself.  And I forgot how much I like the smell of an ice rink.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  What did everyone do for St. Patrick's Day?

Hi - I found you through the blog roll from an Alt class.

You know, whenever I walk into an ice rink I always mention how much I love the smell of the ice. You are the first person I've come across who recognizes that it DOES have it's own smell. :-)

Thanks so much, Liz! I'm glad someone else loves the smell of the ice, too! Whenever I think of that, I always think of the Cutting Edge movie from the 90's. :)
