Chicago, Day 2

We won our first game, 4-2 against the Atlanta Thrashers from Duluth, GA. Tomorrow, our first game is against the Huskys (I believe they are the local team). Mon will be 15 when she next hits the ice... she'll turn 15 an hour and a half before the first of their two games.

Found myself watching a few minutes of hockey on tv, wondering what I was watching. They looked a bit small and a bit slow.... Bantams? Was I watching Bantams playing ice hockey... on an Olympic rink? Or... were they PeeWees? Oh wow... there are girls on one of the teams. Oh... they're ALL girls! OMG, this is a women's olympic hockey game. Wow! I'm not used to seeing women's hockey on tv... it was very different from what I usually watch (NHL), but it was interesting.

How lucky all these women are that they get to continue playing hockey beyond the youth level.

Anyway, after deep dish Chicago pizza, it was up to the top of the Sears Tower... 103 floors up.

Mon took some pictures with her phone (forgive the quality) so I thought I'd share...





That middle picture is Monica's feet as she stood on the all-glass pop-out. Eek!

Wow... they have hockey in car commercials here. Ha! I love it. A place where hockey isn't the outcast sport. :-)

I have a photo I took from the hotel window but I didn't upload it yet... I'll do that tomorrow.

Gabe's on the ice right now. Tomorrow morning I'll post the results of that game.

Okay, I guess that's it for now. TTYL!
