Destination: Pittsburgh

24 Mar

Once Chuck and I went on a road trip that involved five or six Hanson concerts.  Then there was the time we skipped broomball for a Westlife road trip that resulted in us being fined a dozen Dunkin’ Donuts.  And the time we saw *N Sync. Well, boy bands are so 2001.

Pants & Chuck are hitting the road for a reunion in Pittsburgh!

Almost left off the last H for hockey.

We are joining Chuck’s roommate and new hockey fan Beth (@sailingfoodie) to visit her boyfriend The Chad for the weekend.  Plans include the Penguins’ open practice Saturday morning, a CD release party from Mercury and the Pens vs. Panthers game on Sunday.  Oh, and plenty of this:

We are excellent dancers.

I’m packing all my Pens gear in an attempt to outfit the girls appropriately.  Hats, shirts, socks, jerseys – we’re going to look like excited freshman.  If we can figure out how to work fancy technology, we might even update from the road.  This is the perfect way to get everyone extra excited for the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs!

We're taking it out.

I’ve seen the Pens play 4 times this season, but I’ve never been to Pittsburgh.  Needless to say I should be kept away from sharp objects and soda.  I’ll be hyper enough. 😉  Wish us luck!!

    Can’t wait for this weekend!!! Rumor has it that we are close enough to high five Fleury on Sunday!!

      High five Flower!? Perhaps we can get a photo of it for WUYS. We will need to document this entire adventure in the da ‘burgh for our blog. I think that our readers would love it!

      Also just realized that The Chad will be at a hockey game with 3 girls. The Chad = pimp.

    I’m so excited for you guys! As the lone Pens fan in Florida (apparently) I’m loading up the car with one of my fellow hockey fan girlfriends and schlepping it down to Tampa to see the Pens play the Lightning one week from today! I hope to bring back a Tanger hair doll 🙂

    Figures… you guys will be in Pittsburgh while I’m in London, NOT watching hockey! I am going to miss so many important games! I will be counting on you guys to keep me filled in on anything important. Have an awesome time in the ‘Burgh!

    This is going to be Legen…wait for it….DARY!

    I gave up soda for Lent – which might be the smartest thing that I ever did.

    I really want Flower to spin for us…

    AHHHHH!!!! I’m dragging my friend to Pittsburgh this weekend for open practice, too. Unfortunately, we don’t have tickets for the game. I’m not counting on winning the tickets from Kiss 96.1 for Sunday, but my fingers are crossed.

      Brittany, we are also going to the open practice. I think you should email us your phone and we’ll take a group photo!

    • Chuck March 25, 2011 at 8:32 am #

      Pants and I will be at open practice too! Come and find us!

    When is the roadtrip to LA?

    • Pants March 25, 2011 at 6:36 am #

      Cya, where were you when we both lived in LA and couldn’t find anyone to go to hockey games with us? Oh the drive to Anaheim. Like a slow descent into hell. But we’re back pretty often to visit, so next season for sure!

      • Cya March 25, 2011 at 11:27 am #

        Two ships passing in the night. I bet we were at some of the same games. I know how you feel, I don’t understand why more women don’t go to games, do they not know how many hot guys play hockey? Anywho, I have one hockey friend, and she’s a Flyers fan. Next season, for sure!

    Has anyone alerted the team they might need extra security…? Just kidding!

    Hoping you gals have an AMAZING time! And meet up some of the other gang and readers.

    Get ready tho! I’m coming over on that great American road trip later in the year!

    AHHH! I’m sorry we didn’t meet up. The game today was intense! I bet you had an amazing time. I posted an update on my blog about the practice. Check out my pictures! 🙂 Hope you two had fun!!
