Attending a Tampay Bay Lightning game

My husband and I are huge hockey fans.

  • We enrolled our boys into a hockey program right after they learned to walk.

We love attending NHL games. Living in the northeastern part of the country, we watch most the games from home. Buying tickets is always risky because the weather is so unpredictable. There is the very real possibility of blizzard conditions or even a driving ban that prevents us from making the hour-long commute to the stadium. We can be sure that we’ll need to brush snow off the car and scrape ice from the windshield. The heater and defrost will run at max capacity for the entire drive, and the walk from the parking lot to the venue is always brutal. It’s necessary to bundle up in heavy snow boots, winter coat, knitted hat, gloves and scarf. Once they graduated from college, my sons both moved to Florida. One of them lives in Tampa and has become a fan of the Tampay Bay Lightning. Every year, for a Christmas present, he buys tickets to a game for my husband and I. We fly to Tampa and spend a week enjoying the blue skies, bright sunshine and warm temperatures. Attending a hockey game in Tampa is a much different experience for us. We wear shorts, T-shirts and sandals and run the air conditioner on the way to the game. The walk from the parking lot is pleasant. There are always lots of outdoor activities organized for the fans. It’s actually a relief to step inside the air conditioned stadium. I always carry along a sweatshirt, because the rink is chilly, but I never end up wearing it. The cold feels refreshing.
