Not One Bad Seat in the House

I’ll admit that I am not the biggest hockey fan, but I’m also not a bandwagon Johnny come lately, either. I watch the NHL playoffs every year. I don’t have a team, but I really do enjoy the sport.

First off, what an experience! Having spent a good portion of the last two weeks in attendance at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Soccerfest & Viewing Party, I can say that when ESPN showed live look-ins, during the USA vs. Ghana game, from Bethlehem, Pa. along with Chicago and New York, we belonged.
