Mellow Yellow Monday--ChiILin' At The Blackhawks Game-Viktor Brings Sweet Victory

Box seats-sweet treats-sweet suite

Just like the yellow stitching in the famous Blackhawks logo, we were feeling pretty mellow yellow last night as we relaxed in a corporate suite on the club level of The United Center with a film crew that was in from New York.   We had plenty of food, drinks and cushy black seats far more comfy than the stadium usuals.   It was a marked contrast to the last 2 games we attended during last season's playoffs where we had standing room only, behind the top level of seats!

We couldn't bring the kids to the game this time, but we did bring them some pretty cool cookies off the dessert cart.   Our son's showing off the pretty pastries above.

The mellow turned to raucous cheering, though, when The Chicago Blackhawks  won a sweet 3-2 victory over The Mighty Ducks with less than half a minute left to go in overtime!   Viktor Stalberg's goal ended the Anaheim Ducks' six-game winning streak.

  1. Wow, now that's the way to see a hockey game. You won't be happy with anything less from now on. LOL
    Amazing pastries your son is holding. He sure looks happy for a guy who didn't get to go.
