JAN 18, 14 .. ICE HOCKEY IN ANCHORAGE ALASKA .. Part 7

The Sullivan Arena here in Anchorage Alaska is ‘like-home’ to Patti and myself.  Going to ice hockey games is a fun evening-out that we truly enjoy!

The Alaska Aces Ice Hockey Team has a ‘Team Mascot’ named ‘Boomer’.  You will see mention of ‘Boomer’ on our Subway Ticket Vouchers.  Do you all see ‘Boomer’ at the bottom of each voucher?

Before and during each game .. ‘Boomer’ is quite-the-attraction.

And CAP IS REALLY HAPPY!  Study the Sullivan Arena ‘Scoreboard’ ..

HOCKEY VII 032

In the extreme upper left hand corner of the above photograph you will see the number 49.  This is the number of shots-on-goal for the Alaska Aces during last night’s game.  To the upper right you see the number 24 .. which is the number of shots-on-goal for the Las Vegas Wranglers team.

IF THE ALASKA ACES shoot forty (40) or more shots-on-goal during a game .. a local restaurant .. The Outback Steak House ..

GIVES A FREE STEAK DINNER

to all the fans in attendance at the game!

OH YES CAP AND PATTI ARE HAPPY .. WE GOT A FREE STEAK DINNER!

WITH JOY TO YOU ALL!  I wish you all could come to Anchorage and see the Alaska Aces Ice Hockey Team play a game at the Sullivan Arena!  And you too might just win a free steak dinner at the Outback Steak House!

MUCH JOY FROM CAP AND FROM PATTI ..
