Sorry it’s taken so long to update in Amyland. School has been pretty busy, and I’ve spent most of my time reading about hockey on other sites instead of writing in my own blog. Anyway, here’s to hoping for a little more regular posting as the season begins.
I went to the first day of training camp two Sundays ago. It was great to see hockey! I also ran into Myra and family from Laughs 2 Loud and had a good time talking to them for a little bit. The Stars were practicing at the normal practice rink and the new Dr. Pepper rink upstairs. If you haven’t been to Frisco this season, I highly recommend that you go when you can catch something in the new arena. I stayed in the new arena for most of the practice because that’s where Brenden and Jamie Benn were. 🙂 The new rink really nice and has a good Stars-y feel. I didn’t get too many good pictures at practice because I was sitting right behind the bench. There will be some after the jump (mostly Brenden and Jamie’s backs lol).
I went back to Dallas last weekend for the Saturday practice. I managed to catch several of the players coming in for the later practice, and got some good pictures and autographs. I watched the game guys practice for about 30 minutes and perfected my Jamie Benn radar. He hasn’t even played one regular season game and I can already pick him out of everyone on the ice. After practice, I waited around for a while and saw several of the guys leaving for the game in St. Louis. Seeing hockey players is always great, but seeing hockey players in suits is even better! I managed to completely forget to ask Richie to sign my jersey because he came out with Jamie Benn and I got a little distracted… I actually talked to Jamie though and told him I’d be the first person to get one of his jerseys. I like to think I was good luck because he scored twice in the game later that night 🙂
It is so great to see the guys skating again. I was really hoping to see Besko again the second time I went, but he had already been sent down. I would have loved a picture with him.
Most of all, it’s great to see Brenden out on the ice smiling and having a good time. I missed that last year.
Without further ado, here are some pictures (after the jump). There are just a couple now because WordPress is so unfriendly with uploading things and I have econ to work on.
That’s it for now!
