Our son Ben, his son Thomas, and I all enjoyed experiencing a San Jose Barracuda playoff game yesterday. We had great seats as you can see by how close we were to the players. San Jose hockey fans are fortunate to have both an NHL franchise (Sharks) and their feeder (AHL?) team franchise (Barracuda) in our city.

With Love,

  1. Wasn’t aware that San Jose had an AHL team. Cool. And what a treat to watch with your grandson.

      Yes, he really gets into the game. I reminded him that games in stadiums and arenas were two of the few places where he’s asked to make more noise rather than be quieter. “MAKE SOME NOISSSSSSE! He loved that.

    so fun, russ. a great tradition to continue and a wonderful memory for all of you –

  3. I went to a hockey game…one time….as a child with friends I was visiting after they had moved away. It was an extremely early game. I fell asleep, woke up and started cheering for the wrong team. That embarrassment from when I was about 8 still lives with me. 🙂 Someone says “hockey” and that’s where my head goes…every single time. 🙂
