Tonight, we watched hockey. It was grand. It was terribly cold. We danced around for a while to warm up, and then chatted while we watched the scrimmage. We cheered on a Canadian. (He’s my friend’s husband.) I kept wanting to holler out cheers for the Ducks. I guess that’s because it’s the only team I know anymore. 😛 Thank you, Japan, for that piece of knowledge. You see, a California-Canadian friend I met in Japan loves the Ducks and always talks about them when it’s hockey season. I looked them up to verify that they were actually the Ducks, because the bar that same friend frequented was called The Duck, and I was worried that I might have somehow mixed the two. But I was correct. The Anaheim Ducks are a real hockey team, and they’re based in California. Fun fact about them: Apparently The Walt Disney Company founded them, just after having made the “Mighty Ducks” film, and it originally called the actual team the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Cool, huh?
Anyway, hockey was fun tonight. I really enjoyed the frigid adventure (especially since the weather has been heating up so much this week!).
