He Shoots, She Scores

This is what Ottawa does on a Saturday night. They go to a hockey game and cheer on the Senators. DH isn't one for a sporting event but when a friend phoned on Friday night and offered us tickets, I jumped at the chance. DH knew that he had no choice, so he agreed to go along.

We had good seats on the 200 level. After we dealt with the long line ups to get into the parking lot and the game started, even DH had to admit that he was enjoying himself. It was an exciting game, even the sock had fun.

The nice thing about working on a pair of plain dress socks for DH is that you can easily watch the game and get lots of knitting done. I am working with a llama/merino/nylon blend that I bought from a local rancher. I figured that after last Thursday, he deserved them. I had already started the socks and felt that it was time to get going on them after a year of procrastination.

It was a good game. A fan got hit in the face with a puck, two players got into a fight and they launched hotdogs into the stands. All in all, it was a very typical game. HOWEVER.....

See the score board?????
See the big screen on the score board????? (BTW it is on all four sides)

During a pause in the game the powers that be did some advertising for Dentyne Ice. They have something called the KISS CAM. They scan the stands looking for couples. If you see yourself on the big screen they ask that you turn to the person next to you and give them a kiss. Much to my surprise, yours truely and the sweater boy got caught on the KISS CAM.

So in the spirit of the moment, we puckered up and kissed.

I can't believe I did that.....

Do you understand what I did????

I kissed my DH on camera in front of 20,199 people.

Talk about a public display of affection.

Until next time

Yayay you - love never goes out of style!! We went to a hockey game when we visited Vancouver wayyyyy back in 1992!! Vancouver v the Minnesota North stars - we still talk about the fun we had - the hecklers behind us were hysterically funny and the atmosphere was great! One day we'll go again!

I think after that Valentine's Day gift he deserved a nice public smooch!

Glad you got to go to the game and get some quality knitting time LOL.
I am going to be away for a week, so posted my last entry till I get back.

Hmmm...wouldn't it have been more embarrassing NOT to kiss?

Sounds like a great time!

I LOVE hockey! So much more exciting than the other sports. Especially now that there's apparently KISSING, too, heh heh! Good for you!
