So, a little over a week ago, I attended possibly the funnest hockey game ever, aesthetic-wise.
That’s right, the Sharks/Kings outdoor game at Levi’s Stadium, yo. To be honest, I’m actually not a fan of both of these teams. I mean, I have no problem rooting for the Sharks, but the Penguins are my one true
bitch team, and rooting for the Sharks is like rooting for a former side piece I had a fling with ages ago but don’t care too much for, but at the same time, you don’t want anything horrific to happen to them.
Defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic
Expensive ass snacks! (You can bring your own food to the stadium, though.)
The mullet (and sunburn) of hockey, Barry Melrose.
There was no win for the home team, but, to be honest, I wanted to see a mad hockey fight instead of a win. I wouldn’t have cared if the Kings were up 5-0 after the 1st period (that would have been funny); I wanted to see bloodshed on the ice! Sadly, there was none–just a couple of those hockey scrums and that was it.
Hooray for hockey scrums.
But overall, I had a good time. It’s not everyday the Bay Area sees an outdoor hockey game, so it was also witnessing a bit of sports history. Plus, I got to watch Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famers John Fogerty and Melissa Etheridge perform. But the sexiest highlight of the game was one I couldn’t capture (well, technically I did, but the pics from this suck): my transportation to and from the game. No way in hell was I gonna pay $50 to park next to the stadium, so I ended up parking at the Fremont BART station, which was free parking on the weekends. I took the bus to the stadium, and round-trip fare was only $8! That’s $2 more than how much candy costs at Levi’s!!! And best of all from this was that I didn’t have to worry about traffic or police or closed-off roads or any of that shit.
The place lighting up the sky, for yours truly that scored a hot deal in public transportation.
The Oscars were last Sunday and three things about it: 1) it felt like it came too early. I actually liked it when they held the show in late March instead of late February. Still trying to figure out why the Oscars moved their ceremony date. 2) Happy to see Julianne Moore finally win the big one. And 3) I still think the best damn Oscar show was the 75th anniversary show in 2003.
Still my favorite Oscar moment ever after all these years.
