First Hurricanes game

Making the trip to Raliegh for my first ever live Canes game and only my second live hockey game. I'm not a huge fan of hockey, but I'm catching on. My cousin is giving us two lower bowl tix, their season seats, for free. Food and gas is all we have to pay for.

The atmosphere at the games looks amazing, can't wait to experience it live.

The atmosphere's even better when they're actually good. Hockey gets alot of flack for being an unwatchable sport on TV but live there's nothing better. Hope you enjoy it!

That's baseball for me, unless it's the postseason I can't watch it on tv. I know they suck this year, but I'm still learning the game and look forward to it. I actually like watching the Canes on tv.

Which I have no idea why. Hockey has the most action than any other major sport.

Only problem with watching hockey on TV is losing sight of the puck. I mostly watch online streams so that becomes even harder.

I'm a huge Hurricanes fan and it's true, hockey is the most exciting sport. I don't have any trouble following the action, after watching it long enough you get an instinctual awareness of what's going on and who has the puck based on how the other players are reacting.

I have to watch online streams, too. Picture quality sucks...

You are going to the Devils game? That will be a fun one. Have a great trip!

You wont be dissapointed. Watching Hockey live is one of the greatest sports to watch. Plus the RBC is usually rocking.

We beat NJ, Sutter gets a shortie and Cam Ward scores a goal! And I missed it all because I went on a date.

You must have had a great time, Jackofalltrades. Give us your opinion of your first game when you get the time. I'm dying to hear what it was like for you. Thanks man.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
