D Is For Dream (Come True)

I spoke about my dad(s) last round so I figured this round we have to do something different. Don't doubt that I miss my dad(s) every day. Not a day goes by that they, (at least 2 of them), I think of constantly. The other one, not so much.
Now onto what does matter in life, those precious moments that come once in a lifetime.
One of my dreams came true this past weekend. It was my birthday present from the hubby.... along with other stuff you'll hear about in a second...
Vince and myself, Dec 8 at the ACC
I went to my very first Toronto Maple Leaf game!
This is huge!!!
I am a big fan. I bleed blue. I love this team more than any team from any sport, anywhere! Seriously.
The hubby took me to Toronto, we had a nice dinner at Canyon Creek on Front St, which was friggin' awesome I tell ya, then we headed to the Air Canada Center for the game!
The energy of this place is amazing. It is something I can't even put into words, it's just an experience you have to have for yourself if you are a fan of hockey too.
I took a little video of the energy of the place after Toronto opened up the scoring.



I wasn't tipsy at this point, but by the end of the game my toes were tingling... lol.. it was a great night!
The prices of tickets, the jersey hubby bought me with my favorite leaf on it, (#43 Kadri), the beer, the Go train to and fro, dinner... that's what makes it a once in a lifetime experience. Birthday or no birthday.
It's a night I will never forget.
We had box seats with a waitress, it just doesn't get any better than that... LOL
I saw my favorite team live, my memories will hold tight to that one. I don't care that they lost that night. I care I was there to watch them lose.

So there's Freda, the hockey fanatic. No, scratch that. I'm just a Leaf fan.

What's your favorite sport or team?

  2. Tennis for me. One on one, slogging it out for 4 hours in a grand slam 5 setter. Now that's tough.

  7. That's awesome, Freda! I'm a huge hockey fan too. I love my hometown Jets but I'm also a fan of the Oilers and Canucks. I'll actually cheer for all Canadian teams at some point during the season except maybe the Flames lol One day I'd like to be able to catch a game in every Canadian rink.

  8. I have Canadian family that are hockey fans, ...but I'm pretty much an Arkansas Razorbacks girl, even though they've had a terrible season this year in football.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
