As many of you may known I am back in Canada
for a short little visit. I’m off to watch a hockey game and I’m going to be going early
and trekking through the snow to get there. These days there is some serious snow here
in Fredericton. Just look at it piled up. There is some major accumulation here along
the sides. Alright, so after the longest walk – like
30 minutes – in subzero temperatures – if you can see that – I finally arrived at the
Aitken center. Now it is time to watch the game. Here is the UNB Varsity team warming up before
the game. The goalie is out of the net here. They are just firing pucks away. Here we are the UNB Acadia game. The first
game of the 2013 season. Right now UNB is currently trailing Acadia by a couple of points
but they are going to win tonight, so they’ll be back in first place. What is the score
right now? I can tell you what the score is even before the game starts. Zero-Zero! Now
way! They are just firing the pucks away in the net. Man, can they shoot hard. Here is a drill
where they are shooting from different parts of the ice. A bit of rapid fire to warm up
the goalie. I’m here at the UNB hockey game with my Dad
and a couple of family friends. We’re going to be watching the Varsity team play one of
the best other teams in the province. It is going to be an awesome game. I’m totally stoked.
One of the best things about when I come home to Canada is that I always love to watch hockey.
I’m decked out in my Canadian gear even though the World Junior team choked the other day. Here we are in Fredericton with our world
famous fan. He has a signature of Phil Espisito, one of Canada’s most famous hockey players,
watching hockey on a Friday night. One our favorite things to do in the winter time and
we’re cheering on the varsity Reds from the University of New Brunswick. Go Reds Go! Let’s
see that signature. One more time – move it over. There we go Phil Esposito Hall of Fame
1984. There is the bench. Yeah! Woo Hoo! What a goal! There we go. Hahaha! Oh, no! They scored on a power play with a
2 man advantage. Booh! We’re going for a walk. They are down 2-1 with some penalty trouble
in the first period. Hopefully they are going to come back in the second. Wooh! It was a good period and what happened? UNB
scored one on the power play to tie it. Now we’re heading into the third as a tied game.
Awesome game. They really outplayed them in the second period. Are we going to win? Oh
yeah, we just need one more power play and to stay out of the penalty box. Short handed! yeah! Woo Hoo! A player got injured here. Knee on knee. Less than two and a half minutes left in the
game and UNB is up by three to two. It is getting down to the crunch. Can they hang
on. We’ve got to kill off a penalty with a minute
fifty four left.

    It really was a fun game. We do have a lot of snow. I can't believe I was complaining about winter in Korea when I've now got colder temperatures and more snow to deal with back home…lol

    Hahaha, most definitely Maria.

    I think you can lump hockey in with football and rugby

    When did you see Maine play? I go to almost every home game, if it was recent, I could have seen you and not even have known it.

    This was a few years ago unfortunately. I'm mostly based in Asia and Europe these days, so only get to games when I visit my parents back home 🙂
