Minnesota Wild vs Colorado Avalanche

Minnesota Wild vs Colorado Avalanche
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for November 24, 2019

On Thursday night, we headed to the Xcel Energy Center to watch the home town Minnesota Wild take on the Colorado Avalanche.  We aren't huge hockey fans, but do like to take in a game from time to time.

The Wild haven't had a great start to the season.  Their record was 8-10-3 when we came into the game, but we had a good feeling that tonight would be a win.  

The best part of the game was getting to see our old buddies, the Quinlans and the Cuddihys.  They're season ticket holders so we stalked them down right after we arrived.  I don't get to see these people nearly enough since I left Nor-Tech, but always enjoy our time together when we can re-connect.  

I can't tell you how excited I get about a $6 t-shirt when somebody is offering to shoot one at me out of a big plastic tube.  Sadly, he shot it at somebody else this time.

I was oddly impressed with the people clearing off the ice during one of the breaks.  They were so in sync with one another that it just gave me a little thrill to watch them.

The Wild scored the first 2 goals of the game and then Colorado responded with 2 of their own so we had an exciting tie score for much of the game.  Eventually Jason Zucker shot in the game winner and the Wild proved victorious which led to a fun time had by all.  Especially us.

On Saturday night, we drove down to Boone, Iowa for the wedding reception of Miss Sheri's cousin, Scott Broesder, and his beautiful new wife, Krista.  It was a really fun reception and the newlyweds make a very lovely couple.

We always enjoy getting together with Miss Sheri's family.  They're all good people.

Congratulations, Scott & Krista.  We wish you many years of happiness!!
