About Me

Saturday, 10/23

Drove from Amarillo to San Angelo today. Stopped in Big Springs to have lunch. Lots of dead skunk on the trip down.

This is alot of what I saw on my trip to San Angelo. Rest assured, there was some kind of 'road kill' by my feet as I took this photo.

Went to the San Angelo Coliseum to watch the San Angelo Saints vs. Odessa Jackolopes. Can't say I had the best of times at this game/arena. Listed are some notes of my visit:

I can't quite pin point why I didn't care for the game here. I think, perhaps, I was spoiled by my experience in Amarillo.

San Angelo Coliseum

Our friends up north, once again, get the shaft on flag size. They did, however, play the Canadian National Anthem here.

Game Five - San Angelo Coliseum
Saints vs. Jackolopes
Score: Saints 4 - Jackolopes 2

Sunday, 10/24

I traveled from San Angelo to Austin, TX.

Saw the Austin Ice Bats vs. Laredo Bucks at the Travis County Expo Center.

Here are some notes about the game/arena I saw there:

Travis County Expo Center

Here's the outside of the arena. Looks different than most ice hockey rinks I've been to. Not bad; just different.

This is what you saw when you walked into the arena. Excellent job at displaying the Texas, U.S., and Canadian flag. They did not, however, play the Canadian National Anthem. This photo shows the metal benches on the second level.

One other 'different' thing I noticed at this arena that I had not seen before.

The home bench and penalty boxes were on one side of the ice (above the Bud Light and Guaranty Bank signs). The visitor's bench was on the opposite side of the ice (you can see players 14, 21, and 27 watching the action in this photo).

Game Six - Travis County Expo Center
Ice Bats vs. Bucks
Score: Bucks 6 - Ice Bats 2
