So, my good friend Alex calls me yesterday and invites me to go to a Stars game with him. Of course, I say a resounding "Yes!" I love going to sporting events of any type....I mean, come on......a place where I can yell at the top of my lungs, act like a kid, eat cotton candy and throw popcorn at the ref. (uhh....wwwwait a minute....how did that last one get in there??)
We park the car and walk up to the box office to get some tickets. We are standing in line for maybe about 5 minutes, when....all of a sudden....this girl comes right up to us and says,"Hey guys...I have two extra tickets....would you like them?" Alex and I look at each other in amazement and Alex begins taking his wallet out and she says,"No, no, no....they're free....seriously...just take them...have fun!" (you should have seen the look on the faces of the people in line behind us.....daggers I tell you...daggers....)
We skip happily out of line and "happy dance" our way to the entrance! (Alex now refers to me as his "Good Luck Charm"..hehe)

Ok....so, as we're sitting there cheering on our Dallas Stars....shivering from the cold air emanating up from the ice.....smelling the popcorn................I can't help but keep looking over at this kid who hasn't taken his eyes off of his Nintendo DS the entire game. Come ON Kid! Your parents brought you to a Stars game! Are you that incredibly bored??? So, I had to snap a quick picture of it....haha.....He looks like he's in a trance, doesn't he???
Oh yeah...almost forgot...my friend works with the Stars and gave me some game pucks!! They still had ice on them! :)
*We ended up losing the game...* :(
BUT, we were still cheery and laughing when we left. As we're walking back to the car among the throngs of sports fans, I notice this group of 3 guys loudly (and obnoxiously) bantering back and forth. Usually, "banter" doesn't perk my ears up....but, theirs was chock-full of expletives. Well, now.....I just couldn't have that! There were families all around with little kids.....it was just so inappropriate.
I walk right up to them and shake my finger and say,"Boys, watch your mouth...there is no need for that kind of talk....seriously!" (it's official....I've turned into a 2nd grade teacher)
Well.....it worked....I think they may have been in shock at first...haha....
SUMMER THE OBSCENITY-OPPRESSOR TO THE RESCUE!!!!
