St. Louis Blues Hockey Game

This past weekend I got to visit a St. Louis Blues hockey game. Someone had taken my advice for St. Louis gifts and gifted my husband a set of tickets to the Blues/Predators game. He was nice enough to take me as his guest.

If you haven’t been to a Blues game, you’re in for a real treat. St. Louis fans have remained loyal to the Blues over the years, even without a Stanley cup to show for all their amazing seasons. With the Rams as our football team and the Cardinals’ future up in the air, having the Blues around is how we stay sane in the winter. McDonalds recently started a tradition where you get a free Big Mac when the Blues score 4 so people cheer “We Want Big Macs” after 3 goals. Another new tradition is the Power Play Dance. Don’t be afraid to look like a fool.

Both of the teams scored a goal in the first period but after that we didn’t see any more goals for a while. That was okay, we saw plenty of fights and power plays and power play dances. When the regular game ended at 1-1 we got to see some bonus overtime. The score still stayed put at 1-1 so it was time for a shootout. The Blues lose all their power plays so we knew what we were in for but it was still fun watching us go down with at least 1 point on the books.

I’m Julie, I love to travel, I’m very hyper and I like to “hype” things and from that, TravelHyper was born.

I’m a Missouri native and I cover St. Louis travel ideas as well as my own travels. I also like to focus on places I want to visit and budget travel ideas by creating trip plans. There’s so much world out there and I hope you’ll find that it’s worth seeing and that vacation doesn’t have to be out of reach to you.
