My first hockey game

I went to watch my first hockey (oh and for any Brits by hockey I mean the ice variety) game the other day. It was at the Father David Bauer arena here in Calgary. It was a game between the National Women’s Team (the Canadian Olympic team basically) and the Calgary Royals.

It was actually quite a good game, well for someone who has only ever watched it on telly. Of course in the women’s game there are no big body checks or fighting (though I’d probably not want to get in a fight with any of those lasses looked like they could have held their own). The final score was 4-4 which in North American sports means we have overtime and then penalties… with the women winning 7-6 on pens. Lots of fun. Oh there is a short video below… (and a bunch of other pics over on .
