The calendar has once again turned to October. Good news! My fall marathon is over. Better news!! The temperature is going to warm up a bit. Best news!!! October is the start of hockey season!!!
On my recent trip to Pittsburgh for my daughter’s college graduation, we had the chance to visit the Consol Energy Center and attend a preseason skate and inter-squad scrimmage for the Pittsburgh Penguins. While I was sad to think that the Igloo – directly across the street – would eventually be torn down, the Consol Energy Center is a beautiful arena. I can imagine there is not a seat in the house that is bad for hockey. On top of that, it was wonderful to be in a city that supported its teams. This particular Sunday was the home opener for the Steelers and yet, there were plenty of people at this skate.
