Brian’s Dad works for a company that does report cards for companies. They have people go in and test things out, like hotels. Well his company was going to test out Nationwide Arena, and his Dad was sending his “testers” tickets to the Bluejackets game. Not everyone could go, so he sent us two tickets. They were $275 a piece! We our own “table”, replay screen, comfy rolly chairs and our own waitress!!! I was seriously spoiled beyond belief! Regular box seats don’t even compare to what we had. It was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! We ordered lunch from our waitress Connie. Brian just got some chicken fingers. I got a grilled chicken sandwhich. We also had fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies. Brian got a beer. I was going to order from the bar but started to get really cold even with Brian’s coat on my legs. So I just got hot chocolate instead. After the game some of the players were going to be signing autographs in our section, so we stood in line for about 45-60 minutes and got some! We got Jody Shelley, Zenon Konopka and Manny Malhotra. Of course we took pictures, I’m even in some!
Waiting for the game to start! The little blue lights in the crowd were from keychain flashlights OhioHealth passed out to people entering the game.
In play, it was awesome to finally be at a game and not just seeing it on TV. Though we are Philly Flyers fans 😉
Blackhawks dominated the game. As you can see, many more shots on goal than the Blue Jackets! And up 3-0!
Face-off after a commercial. It was really funny when a commercial would come on because the players would just stand or skate around like they were bored and singing la-de-da LOL!
I think this was the first fight of the game and it was right in our corner! It was pretty interesting to watch the guys playing and then get pissed at each other and start fighting. My fave is the ref with the orange bands, he’s just standing there with his arms crossed watching LOL.
This was during halftime or something like that. They had two little kid hockey teams out on the ice and it was too cute to watch them. One of them was really good and kept scoring, he was a bit bigger though.
Me taking our picture. I love this once, hence the icon LOL.
Connie took our picture. I like this one because you can see the arena behind us!
Brian. See how it just seems like we are floating. It was kind of a bizarre feeling being completely exposed like that, but also so cool, because it was like we were in our own little world!
Me, and don’t look at my fattness. Seriously I do not look this fat. I think it’s because I have a tanktop underneath my sweater, making me have a uniboob (and my boobs are huge anyway) and then wearing the bulky sweater and being in a seated position. Sigh. I need to work out *wah*
Blue Jackets trying to score.
When we looked over our little piece of glass that you can see in the left hand corner of the pic, we could see one of the cameras and the guy who does the music. He plays some and does some sort of drum machine as well as uses the computer for the songs. It was cool to watch him when he was doing it.
I like this pic, you can see everything!
Another fight LOL.
Zambonis! They would pick two kids at the beginning of a game and they would get to ride out on the zambonis.
When we were waiting in line for autographs the Blue Jacket guy came around. We had to get a picture with him!
Everyone’s gone. The red asterik is where we were sitting!
