In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
Oh my word. Parking is next to the arena. Fruit Striped Gum doesn't even lose it's flavor from car to metal detector. As for sweating, were you wearing jeans and a long sleeve shirt or jersey...in South Florida? If not, maybe it's time to get to the gym, Lumpy.
And you can find me at almost any game! I'm not the one who was seated behind a full wall of ice girls!
Here's what happened (and I was wearing shorts GDI). We pull into the arena parking lot 2 hours before the game. Tumble weed, crickets, and so forth. Quieter than marco's birthday party.
So we drive to a bar using some bar finder app on the phone, since I didn't see any nearby. Takes us about a mile away. Everyone in the bar is smoking. Awful place. We drive back closer to game time and, wow, a sea of cars. All lots are full. We park at the Target nearby, literally. As I cough out my smoke filled lungs I complete the Sunrise half marathon through the parking lots. I must've borrowed Kent Hitchcock's boxers I was so sweaty. Missed puck drop.
There was a wall of ice girls right behind us...I can't dispute that part.
The nice thing about the Target afterwards was that you could buy some cold Guinness there (not in CO). Stayed in the Target parking lot post-game killing those.
Guy seated in front of us had a Panthers jersey on with the name "DJ Slice" on the back. Scratch it, scratch it.
I could live without the cat snarl sounds during the game too.
The pros: hot tarts everywhere. Good lord. Distracting.
