Sorry, the wife was a card carrying leafer but even she is slowly turning to a Canes fan down here. It's really not to hard to switch when:

-You can buy half decent seats day of the game (at face value)
-They tailgate before games.
-The owners actually care about putting a competitive team on the ice.
-Loudest damn arena i've ever been in!
-My company has a box I get access to about 3 times a year. I was in the box for game 1 of the finals the year they won the cup.
-It's still a small enough city that you run into players now and then. I ran into Ron Francis twice in Target
-Plus since the majority of the players are Canadian anyways I feel like I'm at home.

It was kind of funny that the first year I was here they actually had guys in ref uniforms between periods that you could go up to and they would explain the various penalties and things that happened in the game.

6 Days until the SSR!

i remember taking dw to her first flyers game. i grew up watching bobby clarke, bill barber and bernie. she didnt want to go. i tried my best to explain off sides,icing,the basic calls that stop play. we get into the spectrum,we sit down, i explain the lines, etc. she could care less.she watched warm ups, she almost got hit by a puck,she never saw it coming. the game starts, by the end of the 1st period,the guys behind us were telling her to sit down lady!!! oh,she was hooked. yelling,screaming at the refs!!! she said this is great,its nothing like tv.

Changing sports here...but last night I was watching the Titans @ Steelers.

Only comment my wife had was about Troy Polamalu...said he had pretty hair.

Shortly after that they played Troy's Head & Shoulders commercial.

I don't really blame you much, it has been really hard to stay true to this team, hopefully we will actually put a competitive team on the ice this year. My wife loves to go to games but does not watch too many on tv. My boys have begun watching but its hard to get them to really take this team in there heart when they never win. They did mention Crosby a couple of times and I had to put an end to that real quick.
Being able to go more games and having the fun before would make it a lot more fun for sure. The crowd at the ACC is pretty stuffy unless you are in the nose bleed section with all the drinkers. (not that is a bad thing)

Just a few quick things.

1] I walked the Corn Field last night to familiarize myself with it...took about 30 minutes.

2] I Hope to Start Day 6 on my trip report this afternoon.

3] I think Don is still on Day 4...and he had a head start.

I'm looking forward to reading about Day 6, I think that other thread you are talking about was shut down, something about an infestation of crickets.

That's great! I had a similar experience when I took my wife (girlfriend at the time) to her first Flyers game. At one point in the third period, she announced, "I want to see a fight." I turned and said, "I love you."

Well, wouldn't you know it...I walked out the door this morning and found a flat tire on my minivan! But hey...it's still a nice ride.

Probably from all the negative minivan energy on this thread.

All this Flyers talk is starting to make me a little uncomfortable, but being a Leafs fan, I can't say too much right now!

There was a time when the Leafs and the Flyers had some pretty fun playoff series.

Not quite true, we usually get dropped in behind the lines to make it easier for the Marines to secure the beach for the heavy stuff to be brought in by the Navy boys.

I always hated it when the Flyers had to play the Leafs in the playoffs, because no matter who won the series, you knew they were coming out battered and bruised and in no shape for the next one.
