Chicago Blackhawks vs L.A. Kings 11.27/2010 (Blackhawks win 2-1)
Many thanks to our friend Brian Higgins of Chicago for his generosity in scoring tickets for Rick and I and our wives, last Saturday 11/27/2010. This was my first hockey game, in fact it was the first hockey game for all of us. Great seats and lots of fast paced action. I couldn't have had a better game or teams to watch, the 2010 Stanley Cup Champions, the Chicago Blackhawks vs the home team, the L.A.Kings. I could become a fan. It might take me a while though to understand the game. Lucky for Rick and I, a couple of fights broke out on the ice. Tough dudes and a tough sport!
Brian, a Judo/ Jiu jitsu/ MMA instructor and undefeated former light heavyweight boxer, is head of security for the Chicago Blackhawks. I can tell you that there is no safer team in the NHL.
