Second to Last Rat Home Game

I love hockey so much. I love the game, so fast-paced and exciting and deep. Jumping up and down, screaming for goals and overtime wins and our fighter beating up your "fighter". -_^

Over the ten(!) years I've been going to River Rat games I've met tons of amazing people. And you know what? The coolest and most interesting people I know aren't the players or the broadcasters or the front office people, but my 50/50 customers. I've grown to know them over the past five seasons by selling tickets and yelling "Fafty-fafty here!" in an obnoxiously loud voice.

Why you guys still walk up to me, with all that yelling, I'll never know.

Here's to my 50/50 customers! I love you guys! At tonight's game I had my picture taken with a bunch of them (thanks to my Mom, yea Mom!)... about half, I think. I'll grab the other half at Saturday's game. I want to share their pictures with you, so here we go!

These two ladies buy from me every game without fail. Once I got them within three tickets of the money! I'm still working on their winning ticket. ^_^

Matt. Just recently he saved someone's life by doing CPR! He kept a cool head and did what was needed in the situation. Way to go, Matt!

Kevin, on the right, is an off-ice offical. Often he runs the game clock or keeps order in the home penalty box.

Kevin and Company. Kevin is a farrier and his awesome conversations make a twenty minute intermission go by in three seconds flat. ^_^

Okay, that's it for now... I hope I get to see the rest of you Saturday! Feel free to leave a comment, especially if I messed up or have forgotten your name. :/

Woo! Minor league hockey rocks! I've been to a couple of games here, but I used to go all the time when I was in high school. We used to sit up like idiot holding random signs that we made up. The team there (Waco Wizards, they don't exist anymore) was new enough that some of the random phrases and stuff we made up caught on. My favorite was when we started making 'W' signs with our hands and the mascot saw us and picked it up. He did it every game after that. I need to start going more often again. <3 hockey!!
Aaron, you sound like my kind of hockey fan! That's really cool with the W thing. ~tries to make an R with her hands, but fails~

I totally have to go to a game with you now, you know that, right? -_^
