2013 FAN FEST - A Cold Tale

Yesterday, along with 5,999 other people, I attended the 2013 Ottawa Senators Fan Fest.  It was .... interesting.  The event wasn't quite what I expected - there were too many young children for my taste.  I had hoped to get up close and personal with some of my favourite players, but the only ones I rubbed shoulders with were paper cutouts (that's me and Marc Methot)!

The arena was pretty chilly (has this hockey fan forgotten how to dress for games?)  Maybe I just thought it was still summertime.  Granted, I was sitting in the wheelchair section and without a crowd around me, I was a bit like a popsicle.  The on-ice action wasn't enough to take my mind off my freezing hands - the team hasn't come together yet.  But, as we Sens fans say every year, it's a young team.  

Good choice of Spezza for Captain, but he'll have to prove himself.  He skated well yesterday, but how he leads in the locker room we don't know yet.  Sens fans are good at being patient, so we'll just have to hurry up and wait again to see if this team can win the cup.  

I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed if and when they thaw out.
