Michigan Warriors

Home Up


January 4th, 2014              

    Drew and I heard a commercial on the radio on our way back from his hockey game today telling about the opportunity to skate on the ice with the Michigan Warriors hockey team after their game tonight. He has been wanting to attend one of their games for quite a while now, so we discussed it with Tara and decided that tonight was as good a night as any on our calendar. We headed to the Perani Events Center to get tickets, and were (easily) able to secure seats right on the glass. Drew was in heaven watching the game this close. He was able to see everything that took place on the ice. Hopefully he picked up a few pointers during the game!

    After the game the kids all went out on the ice to skate with the team. They really enjoyed this part of the evening, as they all got a chance to make their way around the rink. Jayden eventually managed to convince Tyler to let me have my skates so that I could go out with her, so I had the opportunity to skate with the kids as well.

    This turned out to be a great way to spend an evening with the kids. It was very affordable ($38.00 for 6 seats on the glass? Try that at a Red Wings game...) and the Warriors even won in a shutout!

...and eventually settled in next to Samantha and Tyler.

A little bit of the on ice action. The Warriors are in red and white.

Drew was loving watching the game from up close.
