Danielle and I went into Pittsburgh again last night to watch the Pens play Detroit in game three of the Stanley Cup finals. After an ugly first two games by the Pens, we were hoping they'd actually get their shit together and show up to play. We weren't disappointed. It was a close game but the Pens played well and managed to get the win.
Being at the arena was once again a blast. We showed up a lot earlier this time and managed to get really good seats. We also had awesome people sitting around us and the energy was just insane, especially after Crosby scored the first goal. Some Detroit fans tried to be dicks and taunt the Pittsburgh fans, which was a great idea, really. One guy was running around screaming insults and waving his Detroit flag...up until one of the Pittsburgh fans ripped it right off of the pole. Then he got all pissed off. What did he expect, really? With most of the Detroit fans there was just some good-natured taunting back and forth, but you always have to have the few who decide to be complete drunken assholes.
In other news, Shelly is moving to Seneca in only a few weeks. I'm so happy for her that she managed to get back into management after everything that's happened. At the same time, it really sucks that it has to be two and a half hours away. She's one of very few good friends I still had left in this area and now she's leaving too.
Thankfully, it's a fairly easy drive so it should be easy to go visit her for a weekend, or for her to come back here to stay. I'll be going with her on Saturday to meet her new boss and help her look for a place to live. I have to get up really early but I'll get to spend the entire day with her. It'll probably be the last time we really get to hang out before she moves so I'm looking forward to it.
So this weekend should be a lot of fun. I'll spend Saturday with Shelly and then get home in time for the next Stanley Cup game. Hopefully the Pens will play like they did last night again. Sunday I'll probably just relax and catch up on some books and shows, and possibly get a blog entry done that I've been meaning to do for a few weeks. I've been pretty busy lately with job hunting and signing up for a class and haven't had a day completely to myself, so I'm looking forward to that too.
