The dumbest thing I’ve ever done (aka Hockey Fest ’11)

The Hanson Brothers

I have done a lot of dumb things. Especially if it is to see/meet one of the guys from a band or a TV show that I like.  However, I am pretty sure today was THE dumbest thing I have ever done. Really.

A couple weeks ago it was announced that David Henrie of Wizards of Waverly place would be playing in the Whalers/Bruins Alumni/Celebrity game at Hockey Fest. I LOVE David Henrie.  Actually, I don’t.  I love Justin Russo, which is David’s character on Wizards. If he was real, I would do whatever I could to marry him.  He is smart, good looking and most importantly, a Mets fan!

The Hanson Brothers

My friend Christine and I decided we had to go see him and possibly find him to meet him as well. (Plus, we also love the Whaler’s mascot, Pucky. He is so cute!) We didn’t have any tickets but this afternoon we decided… what the heck, we would try to get relatively cheap seats to make sure we were inside the venue and that way if there was any way to meet David, we would be able to figure it out once inside.

All the players after the game

This all seems normal enough, right?  Well, for any of you who don’t live in the north east – today was probably THE windiest day… ever!  My car said it was 33 degrees outside when I was driving up to Christine’s house – and when I got out of the car the wind practically sent me flying! Not to mention, it made everything a whole lot colder!

We bundled up, got in the car and headed to “The Rent” where the game was being held. Outside.

I recognized this celeb player from Desperate Housewives

And then.. they announced the team. And they said David’s name. But we never saw him? We could not find him on the ice or the bench the entire game. We don’t think he was there.  I have gone through all of my photos and I have found all the other celebrities on the lineup in the game or on the bench or leaving the ice. But NO David.  We were tweeting him a bit (but only a bit – WAY too cold to take our gloves off to tweet!) hoping he would let us know if he was even THERE… but nothing.

After the celebrity/alumni game, there was a CT Whale vs Providence Bruins game. However, once the sun went down the temperature dropped dramatically and we knew we would be frozen solid if we sat out there for another couple of hours. So we left.

I really don’t know if we are EVER going to thaw out from this afternoon!!

The game ended in a 4-4 tie.  And The Hanson Brothers were there! No, not *my* Hanson.. but *the* Hanson Brothers.  I always remember back in 1997 Hanson used to have to specify that they were not the hockey brothers and whenever I searched for Hanson items on ebay The Hanson Brothers and SlapShot items would show up, so it was kind of funny to get to see them. Although, I am sure I would have enjoyed their antics more if my teeth were not chattering.

But there you have it – what has to be the dumbest thing I have ever done!

Rock N Roll Sundays – Fleetwood Mac

I’ve been a bit preoccupied the last couple of days so I completely forgot to do “Rock N Roll Fridays” meme!  Better late than never, right?  Here it goes…
1. Go Your Own Way “Tell me why Everything turned around
Packing up Shacking up is all you wanna do”
What is the longest vacation you have ever been on?
Usually my vacations are about a week.  I can’t recall any that have been longer than that.

2. Hold Me ”there’s nobody in the future so baby let me hand you my love
oh, there’s no step for you to dance to so slip your hand inside of my glove”
What is the worst exercise machine or routine you’ve ever tried?
Once at physical therapy they had me walking on a treadmill that was off, I was standing backwards and making it move with my feet and I kept telling them that I was going to go flying off it.  They told me there was no way that it would happen.  Wouldn’t you know as soon as they walked away I went flying off of it?  I think whenever I am told “there is no way that will happen” my body takes it as a challenge and it WILL happen lol

3. Gypsy “so i’m back to the velvet underground back to the floor that i love
to a room with some lace and paper flowers back to the gypsy…that i was…to the gypsy…that i was…”
What is your fondest memory of personal freedom?
I guess when I followed Hanson’s tour for a week in 2004.  We went to 4 shows in 5 or 6 days in Connecticut, Toronto, Ottawa and Maine.  Just me and my friend Erin… we even spent one night in jail!

4. You Make Lovin Fun “I never did believe in miracles, But I’ve a feeling it’s time to try.
I never did believe in the ways of magic, But I’m beginning to wonder why.”
Do you believe in magic/witches/alchemists?
Yes and no. 

5. Dreams “Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions I keep my visions to myself
It’s only me Who wants to wrap around your dreams and …
Have you any dreams you’d like to sell? Dreams of loneliness … Like a heartbeat … drives you mad …”
Your newest daydream was about what?
I was daydreaming about meeting David Henrie. It didn’t happen… more on that in another post later haha

6. Say You Love Me “have pity baby, just when i thought it was over. now you got me runnin’, runnin’, runnin’ for cover. i’m begging you for a little sympathy
’cause if you use me again it’ll be the end of me”
Anyone violate your trust lately?
Not that I can recall… lucky for them

7. Sara “Sara, you’re the poet in my heart Never change, never stop
And now it’s gone It doesn’t matter what for When you build your house
I’ll come by”
Do you live in a house, apartment or with a relative?
I live in a house

8. Over My Head “you can take me to paradise and then again you can be cold as ice
i’m over my head but it sure feels nice”
How have you been over your head lately?
I don’t think I have been

9. Songbird “And the songbirds keep singing, Like they know the score,
And I love you, I love you, I love you, Like never before, like never before.”
Do you believe people should have caged birds for pets?
I don’t think I’d ever have a pet bird but if that is what people want for a pet who am I to tell them no?

10. Landslide “can the child within my heart rise above?-can i sail thru the changin’ ocean tides? -can i handle the seasons of my life? i don’t know…..”
What season of your life are you sailing through?
I don’t think I’ve ever sailed through anything. (Other than the ocean)

11. Silver Springs “Time cast a spell on you But you won’t forget me
I know I could have loved you But you would not let me”
Any unrequited love story for you?

12. Little Lies “No more broken hearts, we’re better off apart. Let’s give it a try, tell me tell me lies…”
Ever told a lie to someone so to not hurt their feelings when they asked for the truth?
If I have, the truth always came out some time later. I am a pretty bad liar!
