I've mentioned before in this very space that we became Mallards Season Ticket Holders for the first time this past season, and it has been a great experience for my family.  Well, Saturday Night's victory was no exception.. Mallards come through for us again!

Since we weren't tied down to our regular seats for the playoffs, I thought I would split for a suite with some friends of ours and another family with kids who are big fans.  There is nothing like the seats over the ice in one of the truss suites…204 and 206 are my favorites. Heckling the goalie of the visiting team is a great pastime, and you are only 15 feet above him at the top of the horseshoe, so you know he can hear EVERYTHING!  Great fun!  A few beers, and the night was complete...

Well…almost complete. For SOME of us, who shall remain nameless…the night isn't complete until you've mentioned seeing the goalie's MOM at Daisy Dooks, and then getting a special dance from her in your van for $3.  Hey, all's fair in love and goalie heckling…but as these pictures show, SOME of us took "The Suite Life" to another height…pilfering chicken wings and beer from neighboring fans…for shame!

As I said, I can't identify the person involved here, but if you recognize him, either by his loud love of the Cardinals, or his fresh elbow-surgery scar, or by his alias, Klinger, please contact the proper authorities.  Until then our suite access has been restricted...
