So I finally got home and actually had some time to get this done. I know most of you had already seen the game and read the recap(and yes, I could only laugh when Jody Shelley scored that goal), o I wont bore you with anything about the actually game itself. First, I will say that a couple inches of snow absolutely destroyed the city. all the roads were icy as heck, and the sidewalks were all sand, obviously they never really expect that kind of snow, so its hard to blame the city itself. but the whole downtown area is really nice in general. the two stadiums are right next to the park, CNN, and the coke museum(pretty cool, actually) and aquarium.
The Thrashers also has some....uhhh, banners too : /
We sat by where the Flyers came out, so we walked down to take some pics. I saw Cotsey walk out of the Flyers tunnel and yelled to him and he pointed to me, so that was the first of all good things to come. Then the Flyers came out for their practice.
Side note, bobs skated by and looked over(guessing surprised with all the Flyers fans there) and I showed off my #35 on my sleeve and he did a little head nod to me. That was epic. Then Danny at the end came over and flipped some pucks over the boards, I got one that bounced off my cousins hands haha, the he caught another anyway. I would have gave mine to this dad and his kids but he got the very 1st one. Another note, the only other game puck i ever got was from a Thrashers game years ago at the WFC.
So thats all my pics. The stadium was about 60-40 with thrashers fans, but the ones that i talked to all knew hockey, which was good. in all it was a very satisfying time. Good sights and good hockey.
