The Xcel Energy Center is hosting two games for the women of Team USA as they prep for Vancouver 2010 Olympics. And apparently they’re in Blaine, until Monday!
Why should you watch elite women’s hockey?
Because they play your game.
No checking, just fast, clean play–like we aspire to. The NHL is fun to watch, but we will never play that game. The elite no-check game is what we should be watching to emulate.
Right now, you can see Team USA play in Blaine as the coaches winnow down to the final roster. Details [url=http://www.usahockey.com//Template_Usahockey.aspx?NAV=TU_02_04&ID=24498 ]here.
On September 25, they will play at the Xcel Energy Center, versus the WCHA women’s all stars, 7 p.m. And on December 30, they will face longtime, big-time rival, Team Canada, at 7 p.m.
This will be EXCELLENT hockey, and the Xcel Energy Center e-mailed me details about discount tickets for both games. The online offers will expire seven days before the game, so buy early and take the kids to see some GREAT hockey.
For discount tickets, see https://secure.xcelenergycenter.com/GT/default.asp?Group=JMSH93726. They will be mailed to you in two to three days, and feel free to share the link with others.
You should go!
