Zambonis are a girl's best friend
Hello. Those who don't remember me, I blogged from Vancouver during last year's Winter Olympics (you can read that here.)
My family and I were sitting in our seats during the second period when a nice man from the Kings came up to me and asked if I was Hannah. He took my mom and me downstairs to where the Zamboni was. There were a lot of people walking around down there, all people who work for the Kings. They were all very nice. One of the girls who work there gave me a shiny necklace to wear, and an official puck used during practice.
They helped me get on the Zamboni, and my seat was very high. Before I knew it, we were out on the ice. We went around nine or 10 times, and the people in the stands were waving at me. I waved back. It was like being in a parade. Bailey, the Kings' mascot, hitched a ride on the Zamboni for a little while. He is very funny. I saw my dad and one of my sisters, Samantha, in the stands. They were waving real big. The Kings even announced my name to the crowd. I felt like a movie star!
Then my adventure was over. It was exciting to be on the ice, like the hockey players are.
Best of all, the Kings won, 1-0.
I want to thank Mike Altieri of the Kings for being so nice and helping me ride the Zamboni. He was down there when I was, and made sure I had a good time. He also made sure I got some pictures of my time there, some of which you see on this blog.
I also want to say hi to Bailey!
