Speaking of hockey, because that’s what I’d like to be doing, the better half got me the best birthday present. On October 27th we will be heading to the Wells Fargo Center to see the Flyers play. The seats are six rows from the ice, on the blue line. I’m stoking. I love my Flyers. But this is what I love more. They’re playing the Winnipeg Jets.
As you all know the Jets are an official Riot! team, and Chris and I never hide our love for them. So as I’ve stated since the inception of the Jets I will be there clad in my Jets gear and expect to get shit from friends and Flyers fans at the arena. Either way I don’t care. I have love for the Jets and I’ll stay until the final horn, even if they lose by six goals (they’re goaltending concerns me). The Jets did get their first win last night against a very good Penguins team to the delight of the Jets faithful in Manitoba. So who knows, maybe they will be the surprise of the NHL this season. All I know for sure is that 4 games in and the fans of Winnipeg already hold the Advanced Fandom crown.
