July 30: USA vs. Canada ice hockey

Tonight was a new experience watching live ice hockey! Team Canada and Team USA are touring New Zealand for a 3-game exhibition tour during their summer/our winter. My brother has spent time in the States and Canada so is pretty keen on hockey and organised a few people to head along and have a look. I was lucky that he had explained some of the rules beforehand so I had a general idea of what was happening and really enjoyed the fast pace of the game. I was a bit disappointed as I’m pretty sure they saved all the big hits and fights for the promo video so there weren’t any of either left for this game as well as the massive amounts of time spent resting between the thirds! Oh well, still happy to have had a look, experience the atmosphere and watch Team Canada dominate 7-3 on day 211 🙂
