Go My Favorite Sports Team!

by William Jackson on 2004-12-17

I went with some friends to see my very first live hockey game. There was a lotof yelling, and a few fights. Then the game started. I have to admit, theLubbock Cotton Kings seemed to handle the puck with more elegance and grace thanthe Austin Icebats. But as you know, elegance and grace neʼer won manlyhockey game.

The only time Lubbock scored was when two (2) of the Austin players were in thepenalty box. At the end of the game it was tied 2-2. Therefore, there was fiveminutes of sudden-death overtime. Let us all rejoice, for the Icebats scoredwith 55 seconds left and we didnʼt have to wait for a shootout.

The best show the whole night was the people on the outside of the glass,banging on it whenever the opposing team skated by. Weird. Oh, and the Icebatmascot threw us a t-shirt. Super cool.
