My hockey curse.

Recommended Posts

Alright... here's my story: I've been to three hockey games in my life. ALL THREE of them have ended with a final score of 1-0, with the home team winning.

February 1999 - Nashville Predators vs. Phoenix Coyotes, Preds win, 1-0. First ever home shut out win.

November 2003 - Atlanta Thrashers vs. Phoenix Coyotes, Thrashers win, 1-0.

Tonight - Jacksonville Barracudas vs. Fayetteville Fireantz, 'Cudas win, 1-0.

Very, very odd. I'm going to another game in a couple of weeks, and if it happens again, the curse is confirmed.

Anyway, wanted to show you all some pictures I took at the game. I had fantastic seats.

This is the outside facade of the 'Cudas arena.

Yeah, I think I'll be going back.

I was going to ask for a picture with the Ice Girls, but my camera died. (BAH!)

Nice shots... how low are those banners hanging? They look like they're a few feet above the ice.

Those can't be any more than 2.5 referee lengths above the ice. Those are way low.

And those Ice Girls are nice. :D

I'd love to share pictures taken from the NBA's Rookie Challenge on Friday night -- but my seats were too bad to take any worthwhile pictures from (but they were $45 tickets for free, so it's all good). So I didn't take any pictures.

I was at that game against the yotes when the thrash won 1-0.

i went with a co worker of mine that got us decent lower bowl seats. about mid ways from the glass.

The Jacksonville Suns' stadium across the street.

and to think, thats a stadium for a AA baseball team. i have heard rumors that the Dodgers want to make the Suns a AAA team (apparently because Las Vegas has bad management, i'll try to find a story)

Isn't that Pringles Park?

I see it was "dress like an arena seat" night.

No kidding... that whole section under the banners from that angle is pretty much empty.

It wouldn't account for all those empty seats, but maybe it was the opening faceoff, with some fans still filtering in.
