Hockey and Cookies--The Chicago Wolves Are Back

Here are the last of our photos from blogger night at The Chicago Wolves.   We were able to stretch it out over three features.   Last weekend we were out at Allstate Arena for Monster Jam, where tons of dirt and junkyard cars lined the floor of what's now back to a pristine surface of ice.  Each year 700,000 cubic yards of dirt and 3,000 crush cars are used to put on USHRA Monster Jam events!

Now The Chicago Wolves are back in town.   Here's their schedule for the next few weeks along with links if you wanna know more.   They're the best deal in town, for live, fast skatin', hockey action!

Sat., Feb. 19 vs. TEX at 7 p.m.
Wed., Feb. 23 vs. RFD at 7 p.m.
Sat., Feb. 26 vs. PEO at 7 p.m.
Fri., March 4 vs. MIL at 7:30 p.m.
Sun., March 6 vs. MTB at 3 p.m.

Our whole family had a howlin' good time and are eager to go back and see The Wolves again.   The opening fireworks and pyrotechnics display was a big hit, and despite a loss to the Canadian Bulldogs, we had a fun evening.

If you missed our first two posts, you can check 'em out HERE and HERE.   We've been avid Blackhawks and college hockey fans for years (Go Miami Redhawks!) and can't believe we'd never made it to see a Chicago Wolves game live.

The game we saw was also kick off day for Girl Scout cookie sales and Adopt A Dog.   We just got our cookies this week and are happily munching on Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs.   Girl Scouts and Brownies are still holding booth sales, so support a great cause and buy some boxes before they disappear for another year.   It's Sagezilla's first year as a Brownie and she's been having a great time selling and distributing her first cookies.

Check out The Chicago Wolves website for ticket info, merch, and fan fun.    Generally you don't wanna get a DOG (Delay Of Game penalty) at a hockey game.   But in this case, you might want to make an exception.   There's no penalty for giving a homeless dog a second chance at a happy life!   If we didn't already have 3 dogs (including 2 rescues), I'd be seriously tempted.   This weekend is another Adopt A Dog game on the 19th.   Click HERE for more info and have a great weekend!
