The fourth NHL arena we checked off our bucket list…
April 7th, 2016
We hopped on a flight to Boston, MA.
I have this…tradition shall I say, to email each NHL Arenas Season Ticket Holder staff before we make our journey to their arena.
THE BOSTON BRUINS
DID NOT RESPOND
And I have to say I was not surprised.
But I was geeked to be in Boston.
In my previous post, I talk about how excited I was for Vancouver.
Well, Boston was my American version of Vancouver.
I am OBSESSED with Boston.
I think it’s because I went the year before, with my sister Amanda, and I got to explore the city by myself when she was taking a seminar and it was the first time
I felt truly independent.
Dad and I were apprehensive about wearing our Red Wings gear in their arena. We’ve heard some hockey rumors that Boston fans were not the most pleasant to other fans. So we went incognito and wore Original 6 gear.
But, me being me – I had to wear something to show I was there for the Red Wings…
This was the first game we went to where we decided to utilize our resources being Season Ticket Holders – we were on a mission to get the coveted ‘Friends & Family’ tickets.
We sat center ice, lower bowl. Which were awesome seats. But it was the first time we sat center ice. We are accustomed to sitting Behind The Net 18ish rows back where the Red Wings shoot twice.
But, it was a cool experience to sit there. And we sat next to T. Campbell of Tunes by T. It was really neat to sit by someone who worked for the organization and knew a lot about the game and the players.
The Red Wings lose to The Bruins by a score of 2-5.
Boston marked the 4th NHL Arena (Vancouver being our 3rd) on our bucket list of attending Red Wings games at different NHL Arenas.
Next stop? New York!
