One of my favorite things to do in Denver is cheer for our Colorado Avalanche! I was lucky enough to work for the Denver Nuggets when the Avalanche came to town. Which meant when the Avalanche team needed extra help, for events like the Stanley Cup Parade, I was able to be a part of the “Team” activities.
HELLO… I was in charge of making sure one of the players got on his assigned fire engine. I was also supposed to make sure he got off the engine and then escort him to the party after. I was told specifically NOT to get on the engine, but between the firemen and the player, I had NO choice but to sit in the front seat of the engine!!! The player stood on top and waved.
I haven’t ever seen so many people in my life. It was more than amazing, it was overwhelming.
What great memories this team has brought to my family and so many people in our city. I still love to go to the games. A tip for the wimpy people like me, if you are sitting close to the ice, dress warm and bring gloves to help you clap really loud and stay warm. A scarf would be another great accessory.
If you want to purchase tickets, call my contact Sarah Feldman (phone number below). She can help you with any amount of tickets you need as long as they are available. I saw they were sold out last week, so plan ahead.
Ladies…men go to hockey games. No need to know the rules, just DO NOT sit and talk about “what if a puck hit you in the head” during the whole game. My son and I saw first hand that when a lady asked this question all night long (she was sitting in row three right behind us) it finally did hit her in the head at the beginning of the third period. It was crazy, he and I got up to get food and we came back to paramedics, blood and a big mess. It is highly unusual for a puck to do what it did, but it’s all she talked about so I guess she attracted it.
The games are fun even if you don’t know the rules, it’s a great Denver experience!
Don’t forget, call Sarah Feldman for tickets, she fabulous! 303-405-1376
