Ladies and Gentlemen, the Big Board

My goal/mission

I should probably start this first post with a quick introduction.

My name is Sean, I'm from Chicago, and have been a Blackhawks fan since I first became aware of hockey (which really is the most beautiful game, imho).  That was sometime around 1994-1995, ish.

So, after rekindling my love of hockey, after living in the middle of nowhere for a few years with maybe 1 game a week on TV, and being able to actually see my Hawks on TV a couple years back, I made a decision.

I was going to go see a game in all 30 NHL arenas.  Admittedly, some of these will be a lot easier than others.  Going to a game at say, the United Center is a few blocks away, whereas Vancouver is quite an excursion.  So I gave myself some time.  Luckily, my first game came on October 13, 2010.  This makes 30 months roughly April 13, 2013, which is about the end of the 2012-13 regular season.

Now, since I'm currently at 3, I'll add posts for each of those games, with pictures I took at the venue/city.  Hopefully I'll be able to fully chronicle my entire journey.

Wish me luck!

Sean goes to Canada!

Given the title and above picture, it's pretty obvious that my latest journey took me to the Great White North.  Even though this time of year it was the Moderately Dreary North.  This trip took me to the great city of Toronto for a Maple Leafs game, plus the Hockey Hall of Fame.

There's the cup, shiny...
