So I went to my first Ottawa Senators game I think it was actually the first pro hockey game I’ve been to that wasn’t at the Saddledome…and it felt a little weird. But, the ticket was only $25 so hooray.
Here are some of the things that stuck out:
-That Zdano Chara really is huge. Especially when you’re looking at him next to Martin St. Louis.
-That Daniel Alfredsson is a really good hockey player.
-Sens fans really hate the Leafs. When the out of town scoreboard came up showing that the Leafs had lost, there was a resounding cheer followed by a “Leafs suck” chant that went for at least 20 seconds.
-Sens fans are NOT as loud as Flames fans.
-The Corel Centre is stuck waaaay out off the highway. I bet they’d sell out if it was closer in.
-Deep fried pickles are really quite delicious. (really, how could they not be…I do love pickles)
-When you’re used to hearing “Go Flames Go” you can almost convince yourself that that’s what you’re hearing when you hear “Go Sens Go”.
And there you have it. Hockey in the capital is a good time.
