Dude, Where's My Muse?

What else, but HOCKEY?
And where I sat, I had no one in front of me which gave me a rather up close view of the players. I'd like to thank Trent Hunter for smushing numerous Oilers in front of me during the first period *g* DiP for taking long water breaks and turning to face my camera in the second and one of my fave ex-Oilers for the last two minutes of the 3rd period when he finally looked at me *g* and I managed some half decent photos (I hope.)
So some of the guys don't look much different in person, some are a little smaller than I remembered (Okay, so last time I was at an Oiler game half these guys weren't Oilers, but I digress...) finally got to see 2 of my fave Oilers up close (34 and 16 and not to mention the goalies, who I really wanted to see and those Islander guys...)
Garon was really impressive. Made a lot of great saves. And DiP's save in the third was amazing!
The Zack fight... I think he could do with some boxing lessons, but that's just me.
Enjoyed seeing Mikey again. Did not enjoy the idiots booing every 5 seconds.
But I totally enjoyed the game, had a lovely time despite the mile long trek from the car to will call on the icy sidewalk and the bridge. And I think I want to try and squeeze one more game in this season. Might even try to go to autograph day this weekend if I can make it, two or three oilers I wouldn't mind standing in line for.
