My family and I had a great time watching our local USHL team, the Fargo Force, tonight. The home team lost 3-2, but it's never a bad night when you are out with your family watching a hockey game.
Our 5-year-old even had the opportunity to ride the Zamboni during the second intermission. We had scheduled this at the beginning of the season, and knew about it for a while, but she was looking forward to it all day. When the moment came, she was all smiles as she took a trip around the ice.
After the game, we had the opportunity to meet one of the players. Kevin O'Neil was the evening's "Player spotlight" and was signing autographs for fans after the game. My girls were off playing at the playground area, but I waited in line, and got a puck and a game program signed by him.
