My Favorite Duck

You probably thought you were going to see a duck hunting blog or a blog about Chesapeake ducks … ya I’ll add some info about that.  But right now I want to talk about  my favorite Ducks.  That would be the Anaheim Ducks. Can you say PLAYOFFS?! For those of you who are not ice hockey fans – the Anaheim Ducks are a professional hockey team located in California and part of the Western Division.

I love playoff season and I especially love visiting the Ducks Stadium  the Honda Center.  Have you been there? Is it not one of the most impressive hockey arenas you’ve been to?  And it’s located in southern California – one of the most beautiful places in the US if you like beaches and great weather.

Anyway, about my Anaheim Ducks.  Yes, I said MY… cause you know when you are in the playoffs they suddenly become YOUR team?  My team is up 2-1 in the second round of the playoffs.  I was fortunate enough to get to go to the first game of the second round.  Nothing like the buzz in the stadium when you walk in and especially when they score.

Waiting for the next game on Friday feels a little like waiting for Santa to come when I was six.  As they are off in the wilderness of Banff, Fenlands Recreation Center watching wildlife and practicing for the next two days, I’ll be dreaming of them winning round two and playing the Blackhawks for the Stanley cup.
