I loaded up the Moody Crew last week and we went up to Atlanta for a little rest and relaxation for the kids' spring break. While there, we decided to take a shot at hounding the local Holiday Inn over in Gwinnett to try our luck at the South Carolina Stingrays.
It was Mikayla's first time hounding without any help from dear old dad, other than I got to be the taxi driver. She looked like a veteran out there. She even thought enough to talk to the bus driver to find out the best place to be to get autographs.
The Stingrays, similar to their parent club -- the Washington Capitals -- like to throw their fans a bit of a curve ball. The team gets bused over in two separate trips. We ended up getting there in time for the second trip. The little one added 10 signatures to her team sheet, including the likes of Johann Kroll, Rob Ricci, Jake Hausworth and Shane Connelly.
After a quick bite to eat, we took in the game between the Gwinnett Gladiators and the Stingrays, for the final game of the ECHL season. It was a decent game and for the dollar it was well worth it. For less than $20 a ticket, we sat on the glass right behind the bench where the Glads entered from the locker room.
After time ran out in the second period and the players headed to the locker room, Gwinnett goalie David Brown came over to Mikayla and handed her this game puck. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. It sure made the day that much more fun.
