I just got back from watching my first hockey game - Oklahoma City Blazers vs. Some Team from Colorado. It was exciting. You can read a pre-game blurb in a Colorado paper here.
Overall, it seemed like a good game. For years I've heard stories of how violent hockey gets, and references to bloody noses and such, but I had no idea how it all actually played out- it wasn't bad. I've seen worse in the lobby here :-) (okay, on very rare occasions)
The final score was OK 5 to CO 4. It was getting very close for the last three minutes, but we won!
