Hockey Family

Our family is a hockey family.  Usually it's just Jake and I going to all of the Bruins home games here in Boston, but yesterday we had a very special day and got to take Jake's grandmother, Memere Rita, to the Bruins vs. Lightening game!

We had an absolute blast.  Memere wore Jake's Cam Neely jersey to the game, and within 5 minutes of being in the Garden, Bruins alum Lyndon Byers walked up to her, tapped her on the shoulder and goes "I used to protect that guy, you know!" Memere and LB chatted about hockey and Canada for the next 15 minutes, hilarious!

When the game started, the Bruins were really blowing in the first period.  Memere was annoyed at all of the penalties and didn't like the big McQuaid fight ("the refs let them fight toooooo long!")  We were all completely stoked when the B's started to turn it around and ended up winning 3-2!  It was an awesome day, and we can't wait to take Memere to another game.
