OT: It's Hockey Night Tonight!

Actually, it will be Hockey Night almost every night from now until June-ish. Can we say "excited"? That's me!

Last night was the Devils' home opener, and we won, we won! We beat those nasty old Islanders 2-1. That's Zach Parise celebrating the first goal of the game and the season. I was there to see it too. Wahoo!

As for the lace scarf, well, it's collecting dust and probably will be for awhile. Between Brodie (see post below) and the Devils, I have a very full schedule.

So how about all you other hockey fans here at RTY? Let's hear from you about the beginning of the season. I know I'm psyched!

Oh I am so ready for hockey. My husband and I were fortunate to see the Detroit Red Wings and the Senators play 2 games in Stockholm Sweden last weekend when the NHL opened the season there. Both my sons played travel hockey thru high school, so we are hockey nuts. Jill S

OMG, Jill, you got to go to Stockholm!?!? Wow! That's amazingly cool.

I'm waiting for the NHL to play their winter outdoor game in New York City so I can go to that. Stockholm is way out of my league. :-)

yeah hockey!!! Flyers are off to a rough start but the Penguins look pretty good. I have to line up my knit projects- the ones I don't have to look at so much so I can watch the games. Plus its the last season of the Phantoms, so hoping to get a few of those in too...

RC, you read my mind! I need to start a Lady Eleanor shawl so I can knit while watching hockey. Lace is NOT the right project for hockey season. I'm just afraid that if I don't finish the lace scarf now, I'll forget the stitch pattern completely and it will be that much harder to finish when I finally get back to it.

I was a hockey fan way back in high school. We used to go to the Garden to see the Rangers but I kind of drifted away. TV is a poor substitute for actually being at a game. There's something about feeling the cold, the smell of the ice, that speed--hmm. Maybe I should take another look!
