    The more clear shots are at the ballpark from the 12-31 Oldtimer game... the next day at the Big House was all snow, all day...

    Reminds me of the old days on the pond and the 1st rink i ever played in in the 60s lol. Use to get to keep any money you found in the snow if you helped scrape the ice. Those were the days, every sundy heading to my freinds for pond hockey, hot chocolate and pb and jam sandwiches lol

    It was great fun, OMG did we freeze our azzez off. It was much colder than most the other events I guess, 12 degrees, windchill at 1 below. All the bodies didnt help, either. Wow was it cold.

    Still, my wife thought I was nuts when I said I wouldnt have wanted it any other way. The snow filled the air like a snowglobe and the atmosphere really did feel like the pond hockey days.

    Glad you guys liked the pics.

    We were actually probably a little too close and too low.  We were in row 8... pretty close to the "field" and right behind the net.  The very first photo is the best for getting that perspective.

    The best seating for these games are a bit higher up, but we got what we could when we could without going broke.

    I did find myself peeking at the scoreboard screen to see exactly what was happening on the ice a lot, though.
