Children in need of hats

Hey all,
A friend of mine has a daughter that teaches at Ft. Riley. They are collecting Hats For Brats. For those of you looking for some charity knitting to keep your fingers flying while the pucks, sticks, skates and punches are flying, check out this post for details.

Happy hockey knitting!

Accosted at last night's Avs' game

It's interesting to me how knitting in public can make a person distinctive in a crowd. At a pre-season game last week, one of the ushers from last season remembered me and said he wanted to put in his order for an XL sweater before the season started. Thought that was cute.

But last night, at the Avs' season opener, a very drunk Stars fan was walking up the stairs of my section during a period break, stopped at my row, and yelled, "Are you KNITTING?!"

I thought he was going to give me a lecture about how there's no knitting at hockey games or something...needless to say I was surprised when he proceeded to hit on me; "are you here with anybody?" he says...oh, brother.

I told him I was attending with my husband, drunk Dallas guy said my husband was a lucky man, and then he stumbled up the stairs.

*sigh* Not only have I missed the sport, but I've missed the strange fans, too.

It's good to be back

I love this place - the season's barely begun and all the rivalries in here from last season have already started up in the comments *giggle*

If the Leafs can stay out of trouble off the ice *coughBellcough* and play consistently on it we have a damn good shot at the Cup :) Looking at the schedule earlier this evening, I see that Buffalo's first loss (of many) to TO will happen fairly early this year... wouldn't want those Sabres fans to get their hopes up after all ;)
