Meanwhile in Michigan…

Tonight, my parents went to see #11 Western Michigan take on Colorado College at Lawson Ice Arena in Kalamazoo. We tuned in to watch the game on CBS Sports. While we were watching, we kept an eye out for my parents. I thought I recognized the white stripes on my dad’s jacket in the crowd…

And then coming back from a commercial, there were my parents…

It was pretty neat to see my mom & dad on TV. And it was a really good hockey game too. Western defeated Colorado College 3-2 in overtime! 😀📺🏒❤️

Cyclones hockey game #3.

Tonight, we went to Cyclones hockey game #3 of the season at US Bank Arena…

The Cyclones scored as soon as we got into US Bank Arena. But for some reason the goal never made it to the scoreboard. It must have been disallowed for some reason…

Come to find out it was FC Cincinnati takeover night at tonight’s Cyclones game. There were a fair amount of FC Cincinnati supporters that descended upon US Bank Arena clad in Orange and Blue complete with drums and songs straight out of The Bailey…

Had we known, we’d have worn some our FC Cincinnati scarves…

That’s an impressive first period of work…

At the start of the second period, the ‘Clones trailed Fort Wayne 1-0…

And at the end of the second, it was still 1-0…

Our Cyclones selfie made the big board for the first time this season…

Twister joined forces with the FC Cincinnati contingent…

Fort Wayne added the empty netter at the end of the third period…

And the game would end 2-0 to Fort Wayne Komets

After the game, the Uber rates were kind of ridiculous for some reason. There’s no way the 1810 people in attendance at tonight’s game couldn’t have a surge like that. So we walked up to Igby’s on Sixth Street, and had a beer while we waited for the surge to return to normal…

We had a delicious Opera Cream Stout from Blank Slate

Before we could even finish our beer, the Uber rates had gone back to normal. Once we were ready, we got our Uber and headed from home. Win or lose, it was yet another great night of Cincinnati Cyclones hockey! 🙂

Cyclones hockey game #1.

Tonight, we had tickets to our first Cyclones hockey game of the season

We hopped on the Metro 17 bus from Northside…

And in no time, we were down at US Bank Arena…

It was good to be back at US Bank Arena…

The view from our 12-game season ticket seats is pretty nice…

LET’S PLAY HOCKEY!

There were plenty of good seats still available…

At the end of the first period, the ‘Clones were up 2-0 on the Quad City Mallards…

The Cyclones got a new “zamboni” from that chicken place. The Twister, Porkchop and some fans ride around the ice for a couple of laps and throw out a few t-shirts. But strangely, no new ice is actually laid down…

And then the actual zambonis come out and resurface the ice. Back to hockey…

At the end of the second, it was 3-1 Cyclones…

And the Cyclones won 4-1!

We took an Uber home after the game, and our Uber bill was just 13¢ thanks to a $10 credit we had from last weekend. It was a great surprise ending to a great evening of Cyclones hockey! 🙂

Cyclones hockey game #9.

Tonight, we went to our 9th Cyclones hockey game of the season at US Bank Arena.
Our Cyclones were playing the Indy Fuel. Again. It seems like in the nine games we’ve been to so far this season, we’ve only seen the ‘Clones play three or four teams…

At the end of the first,  the Cyclones were up 2-0!

At the beginning of the third, it was still 2-0 Cyclones…

3-0 CYCLONES!!!

And that’s how it would end, 3-1 Cyclones! 

Win or lose, the Cyclones games are always fun! 🙂

Cyclones hockey game #7.

It seems like it’s been forever and a day since we’ve been to our last Cyclones hockey game. They’ve been out of town for the last couple of weeks, and we’ve been longing for some hockey. Tonight, we got to go to our seventh hockey game of the season down at US Bank Arena…

We were really surprised at just how many people were at the game tonight…

At the end of the first, the Cyclones trailed the Fuel 2-1…

It started getting pretty scrappy…

At the end of the season, the Cyclones now trailed 3-1…

Win or lose, the Cyclones games are always really fun. 🙂
