Hockey and Cheeseburgers

Last Saturday night, we went to a Rockford IceHogs hockey game with a bunch of other Lions. Ray is a Lion. The IceHogs haven't had the best season since the NHL strike was settled so I thought it would be a so-so game. Wrong!
GOOOAL! Yes the IceHogs scored early and often in the first period! Five goals in a period broke the franchise record! And they weren't done yet. They beat the Abbotsford Heat 7 - 2. 
One really fun part was that when the 4th goal was scored, everyone got free frozen custard from Culver's. When the 5th goal was scored, the frozen custard changed to concrete mixers. And when the 6th goal was scored, the concrete mixers changed to cheeseburgers. Yes, all 4300+ people could claim free cheeseburgers at a local Culver's the next day! The player that scored the sixth goal cost Culver's a lot of money and it was his first goal this season!

Now the sad part - we weren't in the area to claim our cheeseburgers the next day. And in case you are wondering, we didn't win anything with the 7th goal except a great IceHogs victory!


  1. That sounds like such fun! I love hockey but DH isn't into sports so I rarely watch the games anymore. One of these days I am going to redeem my birthday 'present' from 2011 and drag DH to a game in Tampa!

  2. A shame you didn't get the free cheeseburgers. Sounds like you saw a great game.

  3. Hmmmmmm....Culver's burgers are really good but those goals were even better!!! I haven't been to a hockey game since I/we moved to this corner (S.E.) of MN almost 40 years ago. I used to go to the St. Paul Saints/Mpls. Millers hockey games with my dad frequently and really had a great time!!!!

    1. We definitely got our money's worth without the cheeseburgers! You'll have to find some hockey near you - even the youth leagues are fun to watch! ~Jeanne
