Couple fun things from the big ole tweet machine:
Haha, I spent that entire game 7 on this remote island, lucky to have cellphone reception. I mean, I had to go, my wife and I had planned it for months, but no car, no access to TV, much less NBCSN, anywhere. Game starts and I log on to NHL.com, hitting refresh, refresh, refresh, must have been hundreds of times. Rust scores! Cell phone starts losing charge, but I thought ahead and brought a portable charger. The ferry arrives to take us back to the main island and there's only a few minutes left in the third period. I told my wife "we're telling the ferry captain to sit still until this game is over!" Then Hornqvist scores, 2-0, tick, tick, clock winds down to zero and I had the best ferry ride I'll ever experience in my entire life.
But my best time was being at game 5 vs. Nashville a few weeks later.
I was so unbelievably drunk at that game I helped start a 1992 chant at Roenick during the post game and then ran into Milbury at the hotel bar and told him he had no idea what he was talking about regarding I think Malkin?
I forget, he had skewered someone on the broadcast for game 4 and they had a huge game.
Talked to the host for the NBC games for awhile, dude was super cool.
Somehow ended up at Gooski’s and almost fell down the stairs.
There's stairs at Gooski's? The ones in the back?
Cost of SCF games - ridiculously high.
Getting the chance later to tell off Milbury - priceless.
You're the man.
The tickets were actually relatively cheap. I got two for less than 500.
