Waterloo Blackhawks

leave a comment »

Tonight I attended my first game at Young Arena: the Waterloo Blackhawks vs. the Green Bay Gamblers. I met Kathy & Doug, Sharina and her 8-year old son Tyrese at Hu-Hot for a pregame meal, and then parked next to the defunct Happy Chef on 63 and found my seat in the C section. The game was fairly entertaining. Tyrese seemed to enjoy himself, especially when players would slam against the barrier near our seats (we were in the third row). Beers were pricey — a Budweiser cost $4 — and they come in plastic bottles. The $3.25 walking tacos, however, looked like a delicious bargain. The game ended in a 2-2 tie. We were treated to a five-minute overtime round and then a shoot-off, which Green Bay won. I would definitely go back again.
