After much ribbing from my husband (he is right to mock me for taking pics of shoes...but getting these Spin shoes for $27 were a 3+ month ebay battle, and I'm taking a victory lap whether it's sane or not!) here are my brand spanking new Shimanos!!
Since I had the camera out anyway and was already taking the "abuse" (ha!), I thought I would go for broke and show everyone my newest Asics! For the record, I'm an Asics JUNKIE!! In my humble opinion, these are the best cross trainers on the market! They are cute, they are sturdy, and (when you find the right sale) they are reasonably priced. I picked these up a couple of weeks ago for $40 at Rack Room...originally $119 there, so I love them even more because they were CHEAP!!!
I realized as I was uploading my memory card to my computer...I never shared any pics from the Kings@Lightning game my hub and I went to a few weeks ago! So here you go!
Anze Kopitar!! My favorite King by far!! I must say...it's not in a weird "crushing on a hockey player" way (he looks like what I'd imagine the baby of Uncle Fester and Lurch would look like)...he's just a bad a$$ on the ice. Fast, accurate, super aggressive...everything a good hockey player should be. Plus, I really like saying his name (pronounced AHn-juh). You've just got to take your fun where you can find it, most days. :)
Jonathan Quick! BEST goal tender in the entire NHL...it was AWESOME to see him in action, live!! Our seats were RIDICULOUS for what we payed for them ($52 FOR THE PAIR!), and we were only 5 rows off the ice...so we were, maybe, 50 feet away from him for 2/3 of the game! I thought my husband was going to squeal like a girl and faint! :)
I feel I must clarify though...I am a Red Wings fan, born and bred. I am fully aware that the Kings and the Red Wings are division rivals...but I married a die hard Kings fan, so I've had to adapt dual fanship for the sake of my marriage. :) But even if my hub isn't bright enough to love the Red Wings (ha!), at least the Kings have a decent team, and the best team colors in the league! (It changes, but generally, they are Black, White, and Purple...my favorite colors/color combo ever!)
