Just kidding, he was really excited too.
Before we got inside, our excitement was threatened when the metal detecter wand detected Joe's army knife. We were told he had to put it back in the car (a half mile away) or he had to break off the knife. When we asked why this was necessary, the teenage employee explained that we could potentially kill someone with it. Joe then explained cheerfully to the adolescent boy that he didn't need a knife to kill him, he could do it with his bare hands. In the end, we left behind a broken knife tip, and a terrified teen. Thank goodness Joe was not arrested.
Ok, I am aware that I have not seen that many games. That being said, I still have two eyes and a brain. This guy below, Nikolai Khabibulin, is the best goaltender I have yet to see, after three games : ) With two minutes left in the game, the ducks went crazy! Attempt after attempt to slam that puck in the net. He was everywhere, and didn't miss a beat. I personally think he is freakin' good, and with respect to the Ducks, when I get a Ducks Jersey, I may just get a Blackhawks Khabibulin one too.
Again, showcasing how much zilch I know about hockey, below are two guys wearing jerseys bearing the two names that were on the backs of everyone else's jerseys too.
Selanne and Pronger must be pretty good.
Notice how the refs look like they were just enjoying the violence. Well, they were. They were pretty slooow about pulling these guys apart. Finally, when the skate blades started flying, they were like, ok, ok.
One day I hope to live somewhere where ginormous cheeks are sexy.
Upon leaving the arena, we were confronted with two disturbing, and sad sights.
This one (which we actually got to see all night long)
It's blurry, but that is probably better for all y'all with weak stomachs.
And this one.
But this will not be our last Ducks game. And next time, I WILL be wearing a Ducks jersey! Unless the Ducks are playing the Blackhawks again. Then I'll be wearing a Khabibulin Jersey!
