On Sunday afternoon, I went to a Chicago Blackhawks game. It was quite the trip, given the torrential downpour raining down upon the city from the heavens. As I looked out the window to the street below I was pretty sure that the water was going to begin seeping in through the car doors at any moment. Then my date and I got to the United Center, parked the car, and were soaked to the bone by the time we got inside.
So we sat there for the next three hours, soaking wet and sitting in an air conditioned building designed to keep ice from melting. Needless to say, we were rather cold. Throw in the fact that the Blackhawks were busy getting their butts kicked by the hapless Colorado Avalanche, and it was just a crappy day. I remember sitting in my seat thinking that the only thing that could save the day would be a Zamboni/Tiki Bar for me to drink the cold away. If only I had been checking the eBays yesterday morning.
