Avs lose but great evening
Last night I went with some good friends, Rick Murphy and his two kids, Justin and Laurel to the Avalanche game at the Pepsi Center. Rick is a long-time good friend and his kids are an absolute delight--smart, cleaver with a great sense of humor. The Avs lost but we made up for the loss with great seats, burritos, cotton candy, ice cream, licorice, gummy worms, prezels, etc. Best of all, the ref tossed Laurel (age 11) a puck (the one Joe Sakic scored with), after a tremendous collision on the glass right in front of Laurel. Unlike souvenir baseballs, hockey pucks are quite rare these days. After the game 9-year-old Justin wanted to stop at Wendys for a double stack cheeseburger, super-super large fries and a large frosty. That kid must have a hollow leg! Phil Theanimal!
