No more living in the red!

Allen Event Center - Allen

In the words of the Dropkick Murphys, “Old-time hockey, bar the door! Clear the track it’s all out war!” Yes, I’d had my fill of basketball for the winter! I was ready for some stick and puck action! So that means I was off to see my favorite hockey team, and the one I can afford tickets for, the multi championship winning ALLEN AMERICANS! They were taking on the Kansas City Mavericks. Mavericks? Wait a minute, I was just cheering on the Mavericks last week. Oh, that was the Dallas Mavericks basketball team. Never mind. Okay, not a huge crowd on hand, but a loyal crowd none the less. In fact, I was one of the few in the Allen Event Center that wasn’t sporting a RED hockey jersey. Before any slam and bam could take place though we all stood to our feet as some little girl, and I do mean little, belted out the Canadian National anthem, Oh Canada! Oh Canada? Is there a Kansas City in Canada? Okay, maybe both teams are firmly grounded in the U.S.A., but there was a total of 25 Canadians between the two teams. Okay, I’m fine with Oh Canada. What was weird though, was the fact that those around me seemed to know all the words to the northern country’s anthem. Maybe I’m not as worldly as I thought. So, drop the puck, it’s time to go! And did the home team ever go! With only 33 ticks off the clock, American’s Jacob Doty slapped in the first score for the Americans! I’ve never been to a hockey game where a team scored so quickly. And of course, we all jumped to our feet to sing along with the American’s song, “Don’t stop living in the RED!” even though I was pretty much dressed in brown. I really should plan a little more for these games. Then just two and a half minutes later, Dante Salituro put in another goal for the home team, and we’re still living in the red! Then amazingly, American Zach Pochiro took the American’s lead to 3 to 0 in the first period! Oh my gosh! This is going to be a living in the red blowout! The fans were cheering, and the dancer were shaking their thing! Probably just to keep warm. It’s ice hockey. Yea, it’s a little chilly in there. So, is this going to be a shut out? Well, there was still lots of hockey to be played, and the Maverick’s forward Darian Dziurzynski put one in on the Americans closing out the first period 3 to 1. As the announcer told Darian’s stats for the year, the crowd around me yelled out in unison, “Who cares!” I was just impressed the announcer could pronounce the name Dziurzynski. That was as impressive as the little girl’s singing of Oh Canada. Okay, with the coming of the second period, some dude with another weird last name slapped in a shot to bring the game’s score 3 to 2, and once again the announcer gave the Maverick’s player’s stats for the year which was followed by the crowd yelling, “Who cares!” Such must be a hockey tradition. Apparently, this tradition carries on with yelling at the officials. In fact, as Neil Diamond came on the big screen to sing his classic SWEET CAROLINE, I was all excited about yelling out the traditional “So good! So good!” which is kind of the cool thing to yell out during that song these days. Not so for hockey games apparently. Instead of singing “So good! So good!” the crowd yelled out to the officials, “Refs, you suck! You suck!” I guess the crowd needed something to yell about, because the Mavericks tied up the score in the second period. Okay, we’ve got a game now. Well, we did have until the guys from Kansas City (by way of Canada) scored again, and again, and again! Gee, I’m guess we’re not living in the red anymore. In fact, the Mavericks went on such a scoring spree that the chant, “Who cares!” began to wear a little thin. As the Mavericks finished up the game with 9 unanswered goals, the crowd chant was more like, “We’re out of here because we seriously don’t care.” Yup, the Americans go down 9 to 3. Gee, what happened to my Allen Americans that owned all those Kelly Cup championship banners hanging in the rafters? No living in the red for this team. I’m switching back to basketball.

Allen American game was fun

Allen Event Center - Allen

We went to Allen to see the Eagles play the Americans. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The Allen fans treated us with great respect and were very friendly. The only complaint I would have is that you can tell it was not built for hockey with teams coming out of tunnels on the far left side of the arena and are close enough to get into altercations. Also no scoreboard in the middle is odd but fine since there our scoreboards in all 4 sides that no matter where you sit you can see the SOG, score, and time clock.

Dog Hockey!

Allen Event Center - Allen

As I strolled into the Allen Event Center Friday evening I was suddenly struck with the question, “Why are all these dogs here?” Yes, it was canine night at the Allen American Hockey game. Dogs and hockey? They go together kind of like wombats and water skiing. Who came up with this? Oh who cares, it was time for a little puck and stick action. I hadn’t been to hockey game in a couple of years, and I quickly noticed that the usually top seeded Allen Americans had dropped down a bit and were skating somewhere in the middle of the rankings this season. None the less, the faithful were on hand in their red, Allen American hockey jerseys with a throng of corgis, golden retrievers and dachshunds in tow. I didn’t have dogs, but I did have my phone out because, even though it’s hockey season, it’s also March Madness, and I had to keep up with all of my Big 12 basketball teams. Hey, if people can bring their dogs to a hockey game I can keep up with college basketball at a hockey game. We all have our priorities . All the fans around me seem to know each other and even knew the usher by his first name. However, they were a rowdy bunch and screamed out, “RED” when the word was sung in the National Anthem. Yes, it was time to LIVE IN THE RED! Being an OSU fan, I’m usually living in the orange, but then again, the Dallas Mavericks live in the blue and green while the Texas Rangers are now blue. Oh, so many colors to live in! I hear dogs are color blind, so I guess the canines on hand really didn’t care what color they were living in as long as they were fed. So, on with the game. The cool thing about going to an Allen Americans game is that for the price of a couple of beers at a Dallas Stars game you can sit near the glass where you can nearly feel every time the hockey players slam each other into the glass, and there was plenty of slamming going on in this game! Of course, this resulted in the Americans taking a one-point lead in the first period as everyone jumped to their feet to sing along with, “Don’t stop livin’ in the red!” Excuse me, but doesn’t, “living in the red” mean you’re in debt? Oh well, before I could ponder over the logic of it all they scored another goal giving them a two-point lead. Then more ram, bam, slam! Apparently too much slamming because one of the Mavericks had had enough, and the fight began! After three right hooks to the side of the one of the local boys’ head the angry Maverick from Missouri took the fight to the ice, and the two players had to be quickly pulled apart by the officials. Yes, there were very few times in this game when the penalty box wasn’t occupied. And in great hockey tradition, when the opposing team’s players were released from the penalty box the announcer would announce, “Kansas City is back to full power.” Of course, this announcement would be followed by the crowd yelling, “And they still suck!” As the second period came to an end the Americans were leading 3 to zip making me ask the question, “Does this Maverick team indeed really suck?” The crowd screamed their approval as their home team skated off the ice. Personally, I was more exited about the Kansas Jayhawks beating Clemson in the NCAA tournament, but I guess that’s just me. But wait, there were more important things happening down on the ice for it was now time for the dachshund ice race where several weenie dogs were lined up to race across the ice. However, only one dog decided to participate in the race. The others just kind of stood there as if to say, “This is ice you idiots! You run across this ice barefooted. I’m not moving!” I was kind of expecting a little yellow ice after the display of canine athleticism and apathy. Let’s see the Zamboni fix that. Oh well, back to the game. Okay, the Americans had a commanding lead so this game is over…or not. The Mavericks slapped in a shot putting them on the scoreboard. Then here comes another score from one of the Mavericks. Hockey players all tend to look alike. They’re all a bunch of white guys with scraggly beards. It’s hard to keep up with who is who. But none the less the score was now Americans 3 and the Mavericks 2. Okay, the clock is ticking. Only a couple of minutes left as both teams crowd around the American’s net slashing and banging and slamming and, and, and…game over! And everyone sang along with “You’re always livin’ in the RED!” Whatever the heck that means. Now, I need to get ready for the Dallas Mavericks basketball game next week. Who knows. It might be, “bring your goldfish” night.

Great value for a family night out!

Allen Event Center - Allen

The venue is nice, the workers were very friendly. Free parking! The concession stands were much cheaper than than places like the AAC. Tickets were inexpensive and there isn't a bad seat in the house. I will definitely go again!
