Just in case you hadn't heard...the NHL Lockout is over! We received the news early one morning last week and oh, how I wish we would have videotaped our boys reactions. It's hard to describe just how excited they were, but what I can tell you is that it felt like Christmas morning all over again here at our house. One of the only things on my oldest son's Christmas list were Wild Hockey tickets. Since the lockout was still on we did our best with tickets for him to go watch one of his favorite Junior A players and he loved it, but it just wasn't the same. He wanted more than anything to take a seat at the Excel Energy Center to watch the Wild take the ice and when we got the news about the end of the lockout the first thing out of his mouth was, "When can we go to a game?!". Tickets go on sale today at noon and we are going to try our best to surprise our boys with tickets to the Wild's first game back on Saturday night! (If you're reading this and you know my boys personally...please don't say a word.) Before I sign out I'd like to thank the NHL & the Player's Association for coming to a contract agreement! You've made two boys VERY happy in this house!
