New Shoes and HOCKEY!!! (Pics)

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

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'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 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 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 favorite colors/color combo ever!)

    Love your Shimanos. I have blue shimanos that would look so nice on your page! :) And I am a die hard Red Wings fan even if we have lost the last three games AND our 23 game streak. emoticon Go Wings!!!!! And Carolyn is right....there are no tickets even in nosebleed section at The Joe for those prices. No where. Trust me; I know. I WISH!

    Red Wing tickets are not $52 for a PAIR in any spot in that stadium! But they are an awesome team. A co-worker has season tickets that he bought from his father so they are three rows up. We use to get those a few times a year. Best gift for my Dad!

    I never thought of special shoes for Spin class!

    BTW, row 4 behind the bench = $209.50 per seat here in EDMONTON ;)

    Love your new kicks! And doubly love that you're a hockey fan! (ok even though we probably won't be friends seeing as how I'm a Pittsburgh fan!) Just kidding :) :) Sweet deal for the seats though!!!

    Ah! Fantastic seats and an especially fantastic price!!! I recently went to a Coyotes vs. Blackhawks game and I was able to score seats only 12 rows up from the ice. I was psyched. I'm a Chicago fan, and when I've gone to games in Chicago in the past, I got tickets for the same price....except they were waaaaaaay up in the 300 level section. It's amazing to see the power and speed that they play with.

    And as for your shoes, I love them! Way to find great deals. :)
