“We’re headed to Chicago this weekend,” I told my co-workers, “to see a hockey game. Dave’s and my alma mater is playing his sister’s and her husband’s school at Soldier Field.” That’s where I lost people. Not with the weekend trip to Chicago. Or the love of hockey. At the mention of it being outdoors in February. “You know it’s cold in Chicago this time of year, right?” was the most common response. Granted, I knew that . . . but holy hell, nothing prepared me for the level of cold. Yikes! Here’s our first full day in the Windy City, windchill 4 F. Or, as I would tell my daughters, a little brisk. This 10-on-10 is from February 16, 2013 between 7 AM and 3:30 PM. When you’re done here, go check out Laura’s day.
The next day was the big game. And sadly, even though Miami University was ranked ahead of the University of Notre Dame, we weren’t successful and lost. All that being said, the seats in the Sky Box were pretty sweet . . . and warm. You seriously did not think I was going to sit out in the cold at Soldier Field and watch a hockey game, did you? Now head on over to Laura Louise Photography and check our her 10-on-10. Ironically, the lovely Laura was in Chicago the same weekend I was.
