Well hello again...here's the guy from Europe! Reporting on his first ever visit to a Blues game.... Too bad it was last Saturday...when the Blues didn't only lose, but also failed to score... Imagine that... you come all the way from Amsterdam, in The Netherlands and when for the first time in your life you see a live Blues game in Scottrade Center, you don;t get to cheer for a Blues goal... It's a cruel world :)
On a serious (and Blue) note: I wanted to post something about my experience here at the Blues for my first ever visit. I hope you will enjoy reading it.
When I first let everybody know overhere that I was coming to the States and why I was a Blues fan and for how long etcetera, I got a lot of positive reactions from you, my fellow Blues fans! Again, thank you for that.
Also it was nice to see that the guys from GameTime wanted to write an article about my visit and they did. It really turned out to be a very nice and funny article by Chrifs Gift. Thank you Chris, and Sean and all the others (also the girl outside Scottrade who gave me a copy for free after she heard me saying that I was in it as the guy from Amsterdam lol).
I met up with some of the GameTime people and also some of the people who know me from the forum, the Game Day Threads or my first Fanpost overhere. Nice to meet u all! I got a picture of us as well.
I bought a jersey (home) as well, didn;t got it printed though as the guy of the printing said it would take till the end of 2nd period. As I am only here for these couple of days, I want to wear it. So, too bad. Just like the loss against the Preds, although I must say that I enjoyed my first visit very much!!
I will gonna be there agina tuesday! Because obviously I cant go on my trip (which started in NYC, is now in STL and from Wednesday to San Francisco) without having cheered for and seen a Blues goal...!!! So hopefully I can get a ticket for the Coyotes game, I already talked about that with Chris.
Well, in the end too bad that I didnt here baack from Jeremy Rutherford or Chris Kerber, who I both mailed twice. As a sportsjournalist I would have like to met with them, doing the same kind of job I do back home. They never replied... Other than that, I feel really welcome here and again thanks to Chris and all the other Blues fans. Maybe I see some of you again Tuesday!!!???
