We finished eating in good time to leisurely walk back to the ACC and wandered around the arena before the game. It turned out to be an excellent game with the Leafs beating the Senators 3-1.
He shoots, but didn't score on this one.
Tempers flare and boys are boys. This is always good for getting the crowd riled up.
Since this game was nationally televised, there were a few more commercial breaks than other times. While the TV station is doing it's thing, they show random stuff on the big screens on the time clock over center ice. During the third period, they were just showing shots of people in the crowd because we all like to be seen. Low & behold, Jim & I were up there! Wooooo! My 1.5 seconds of fame. Again, my camera was not ready, so no photo.
After, they were invited to come down onto the ice with their families and have their pictures taken. A great night all around.
A few days later, we got hit with snow. I took Simon down the the park for a walk and saw all these geese sauntering around.
As calm & blue & beautiful as it can be sometimes, Lake Ontario can also be grey, cold & dismal.
Simon has found something particularly interesting in this bush. Isn't he just so cute!
Less than a week after the hockey game, we were back on the GO Train, heading to Toronto for AC/DC!!
I have more pictures from the first concert and this one up on Facebook. If you use Facebook, but we haven't connected yet, look me up. I'll gladly add you as a friend.
Of course there has been recipe testing going on. Here is a sampling of what I've made.
