That was a nice story below with regards to your Dad and Montreal. I have see many Saturday games but the best was seeing Lemieux and Jagr play watching at center ice. Another was the game after Boston traded Bourque. My wife sat next to Hal Gills wife and had a nice conversation. Yet, being 12 there must have been significantly more exciting especially with Dad's effort. Cheers.
In response to kelvana33's comment:
Born, grew up and live just south of Boston. 38 now, been a Bruins/hockey fan since I was about 6. Have always played goalie, gave it up last year since 3 of my kids are in youth hockey and I coach 3 teams. My 2 year old starts next year.
When I was 12 my parents bought me Bruins-Canadiens tickets since I like every other kid who played net was a big Patrick Roy fan. We got to the game only to find Brian Hayward in net. My dad drove me up to Montreal two days later on a Saturday night game and we watched Roy beat the Sabres. Great dads do stuff like that, I'll never know how much he paid for those tix. When your 12 and you experience a Saturday night game in the Forum, there is nothing like it.
Been with my wife for 22 years, since we were 16, have 4 kids, 3 girls, 1 son and two German Shepherds.
Grew up playing hockey, baseball,golf, neighborhood football and wiffle ball. Everyday we played something. We invented games. Kids today sitting in the house on their IPhones and X-Box's have no idea what their missing. We were good kids who never touched drugs and any money we made went to sports equipment, tickets and baseball/hockey cards or ordering pizza. I'm dating myself now, even might be stretching the old arm a bit looking for a stray wiffle ball in the garage.
