First Blues game...


Wow.  The ONLY thing I would have changed would be the scoreline.  The Blues deserved more than a 4-2 scoreline.  But to start at the beginning...we - my Ducks friend, Pam and myself - made the Phoenix Club in good time and had a couple of beers with spectr17 and his mate together with a good oldfashioned natter.  LOL Technically, spectr17 is the first Blues fan I've met face to face and chatted with.  Thanks, dude, for making me feel very welcome.

We headed on over to the stadium to catch the warm ups.  I managed to take a few pics of the guys before Pam told me to move over to the players tunnel - we were sitting near that.  I did - and held my hand out as various Blues came off the ice.  It was huge, huge buzz to be "hand tapped" by David Perron, Yan Stastny, Andy McDonald, Erik Johnson, Chris Mason and BJ Crombeen.  I'm telling you, I've been to many sci fi conventions etc and having the hand tapping experience was a much bigger buzz than meeting Anthony Head, Jon Pertwee etc.

The other really terrific thing was meeting other Blues fans.  If you passed someone in a Blues shirt, they inevitably high fived you or gave you the thumbs up.  A few fans came up to us when we were sat in our seats to have a chat - lol they all seemed surprised to learn that I'm British.  The cameraderie was brilliant.

I just had THE best time and,  hell, even the Ducks fans seemed a mellow bunch.  The pics I took are in a photobucket album here:

I rather like this one though:

If for some reason you want them then feel free to take them!  Let's hope the Blues beat the Kings on Saturday - I don't want my record to be 2 games, 2 loses!!

Regardless of the score today, I feel very, very, very lucky and thankful that I'm a Blue.  And very lucky that I found this site.
