It was good to have hockey back today.
Opening nights are supposed to be festive and full of both nostalgia and future thinking. There was very little of that. I guess Covid 19 has kicked that in the ass–and pretty hard too. Hopefully next year will have a bigger opening ceremony.
Many years ago, for two years in a row, I was able to get a ticket to opening night. It was so good to be part of the crowd. We had anticipation of the coming season. We had hope that our heroes would vanquish all of the challengers. For those first moments, anything was possible.
It is weird to watch hockey with piped in crowd noise. I keep wondering if they have microphones in people’s houses or if they are using Siri to transmit real noises. Probably not–but you just don’t know for sure.
It was good to have hockey back. It brings a bit of normalcy to my life. It makes things seem like they are going to get back on track. I enjoyed the game and I was glad I made time for it in my schedule. It is no doubt that it is Today’s Perfect Moment.
