Due to the kindness of a business associate, I wound up with a pair of tickets to the Blues/Blackhawks game tonight. Darla had other plans tonight, so I took Sio, hoping we wouldn’t see a “dud” game. We were definitely not disappointed!
It was back and forth all night, with the Blues winning 4-2. The thing that surprised me was the crowd. It was a sellout — third home sellout in a row — and it seemed like most of ’em stayed to the end. In fact, the Blues’ fourth goal came with about a minute left in the game, and instead of folks rushing for the exits with an obvious win in hand, they stayed and cheered the boys on. It was as loud as I’ve ever heard Scottrade, and wonderful to see folks getting behind the team again.
Hopefully, this’ll be the start of great season!
