I’ve met Joe Namath. Moon, Bug, The Ingrate and I were at the Celebrity golf in Tahoe about 20 years ago and Namath was in the practice round. There was a wait at the tee box we were standing at and we engaged Namath in conversation. I told him that the Super Bowl win over the Colts justified the impending merger. And, we’ve been AFL fans from the last few years of the league. He was gracious to die hard Raiders fans and I won’t ever forget that.
We drove through Cuero on our way to the hockey. A few days ago gas was $1.119 a gallon and I wanted a picture. Sadly, gas was $1.299 today and not picture worthy.
It turned out to be a pretty good hockey game. The pace of play seemed quicker than the NHL, I think there’s less media time outs and two less minutes for the intermissions. Though we moseyed our way there, I didn’t spare the horses getting home. With a stop in Goliad for pee and ice, we were home in 91 minutes.
I took these hockey pics with my new Galaxy Note 5. Since the phone costs more than my camera did, it damn well better take great pics.
Here’s the arena that the IceRays play in. It seats about 6k, according to the ticket seller. The balcony seats are not sold, and if I had to guess the attendance, I’d say a thousand would be over the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. Our seats were $15, which is roughly what tickets to see the Stars and Rampage cost. Though the cost is similar, there’s the fact that the players are not nearly as talented in Corpus as Austin and San Antonio. On the other hand, there’s no hotel room to rent, then breakfast the next day. Our week stays in Austin and San Antonio are booked and we still want to give each of the two towns a fair shake for next season’s campground decision.
The Zamboni is cleaning and smoothing the ice between the second and third periods.
…these two pictures are upside down. But here’s the outside of the arena and the empty ice before the game. I’m still figuring out this fancy phone.
Marie is feeling better, so we ventured out for a day drive, with the final destination being the arena in Corpus Christi TX. I left my camera in the car and am taking pictures with my new Galaxy Note 5. I’m posting this from our seats in Section 112.
This is my first effort at posting a picture taken with my new phone on the blog.
Upon edit, the singular picture loaded quite leisurely. The camera takes 4mb sized pics. This was dinner day before yesterday when we ate at Whataburger in Goliad.
There’s only one local TV news here in Victoria. On tonight’s 5 o’clock news, there was a piece on the park we’re staying in, how it won national awards from KOA. The film crew took various shots around the campground, and they showed a full screen shot of our beloved Tuna Can. We were stoked!
