I’ve had a lot of firsts with my Grandpa, my first NFL football game was at the Ralph Wilson Stadium, and now I am going to my first hockey game; I never realized Grandpa was such a spirited activitys fan until I went to stay with him and Grandmother, then they sent Mom overseas, and she left me with Grandmother and Grandpa.
- Thanks to Grandpa, I was learning to savor activitys and having a good time, but he didn’t supply me time to feel sorry for myself, not having Mom house with me, and when he said he had season tickets at the First Niagara Centre, I saw Grandmother roll her eyes and take a deep breath.
I bit my lips to keep from laughing. I remembered Mom doing the same thing when Dad talked about going to baseball games. Mom always thought it was just another way to get away from the teenagers, but Grandpa thought it was a good way to get me interested in something other than laptops. He told me the First Niagara Centre was the house of the National Hockey League’s Buffalo Sabres. I had never heard of the Buffalo Sabres, however I was about to learn. He told me to get a heavy sweatshirt. I thought the hockey game was going to be outside, and he frowned. He told me no one played real hockey outside in the summer. My enjoyable friend and I were going to an ice skating rink where you could see real hockey being played. I donned my sweatshirt, knowing that even though it was sixty outside, the First Niagara Centre was going to be frigid from all the air conditioner needed to keep the ice from melting, however even the ice skating rink needs air conditioner in the summer.
