So after narrowly surviving the worst day ever at work, I joined several of my colleagues from work at the newly christened Scotiabank Place (previously the Corel Centre) at my first ever NHL hockey game, starring the Ottawa Senators vs. the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. We had a VIP room (or whatever you call it) all to ourselves – like a hotel room that gives onto the rink. It was heated, catered and everything, with comfy couches and a private washroom. I felt like a little kid at Disneyland or something. it was awesome (and I kept on saying so throughout the evening – just so it was clear). I even caught a hot dog from Spartacat (the Senators’ mascot), and it was wrapped in a signed Senators bandanna. I traded it for a blanket from a colleague whose kids are way bigger hockey fans than I am – I’m not picky. The hot dog was great. Sure, the Sens didn’t win in the end, but it was a good game, and it was fairly won.
