J's First Hockey Game

That was the big news of Sunday. With one ticket (row C, section 411) for the Washington Capitals vs. the Calgary Flames I took my little girl to her first hockey game!

She napped the whole ride south to DC, then walked in saying all kinds of things.
When warned by me that it would get loud at the game, she said "I like loud."
When our ticket was checked at the door, she said "We have a ticket. We're going inside. I'm going to watch the hockey. With daddy."
When asked if she would was wearing red to support the team, she said "Red! I LIKE red! Red is my favorite color in the whole rainbow!"

Our team lost, but we had some things to cheer for anyway as they scored more later. She liked clapping. But ... towards the end, she was bothered by all the people saying "Ohhhh!" whenever there were close shots and scoring chances. She thought they were saying "No!" really loudly, and she did not like that at all. But with big hugs from me and sitting on my lap, she did ok, and was better after the game was over.

And yes they do have a diaper changing station in the men's bathroom upstairs, thank heavens. That floor is barely fit for walking on.

totally awesome... even if you are going to raise her a Caps fan. :)

I was looking at LJ when J woke up from her nap. She came down, looked at my screen, saw your icon, and said 'Look! That's the thing we went to!'


P.S. She also asked me 'Who's the little boy?' in your main icon. ;-)
