Jin and I got to go see the Atlanta Thrashers play the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night. Jin's mom babysat the kids and we went to the game at Phillips Arena.
Jin is a huge Avalanche fan, and this is the only time he doesn't root for the Thrashers. He wore his old old Quebec Nordiques jersey from before the team moved to Colorado,with Peter Forsberg on the back. Unfortunately Forsberg had a groin injury (ouch) and did not play. The Avalanche creamed the Trashers, who were playing like crap. But I had fun rooting for the opposite team than Jin just to be funny. :-)
We made the usher take our picture. It had really bad red-eye and I did a bad job fixing it, but its better than nothing, right?
We had great seats! Just kidding - we were just up at the glass watching the warmup before the game.
Here is Adam Foote stretching. He gave a double-take and smiled at us when he saw Jin's Nordiques jersey. He's one of the few players that were with the team back then and wore that jersey.
