Trip to Michigan this weekend

Carolyn and I got back from Michigan a couple hours ago. It was a pretty quick weekend considering we left Saturday morning, and spent about seven hours in the car since we were in the middle of a snowstorm. The reason why we went up to Michigan was that we had four tickets to see the Red Wings. It was the first time that I had ever been to a Red Wings game, so that was pretty exciting. The best part of the game was we received a behind-the-scenes tour of the arena. We literally were shown around the entire arena, it was about a 45 minute tour. We started off by watching some practice before the game, and then we slowly worked our way around the back hallways. Here are a couple of pictures from the evening.

Here's Carolyn with her mom and dad

Here are some guys with some red light helmets on.

This was my favorite picture from the entire weekend. During the tour are we were taken to the room where all of the beer was stored for the entire stadium. There were probably about 30-40 kegs of beer in the refrigerator. There are three guys in this picture whose job it was to stand in front to make sure no one got behind the door. You can see some of the Kegs behind the guy on the left side of the picture. They were starting this thing like it was Fort Knox.

Here's a better look at the Keg room. They said they were getting prepared for a Metallica concert which was coming up

This is the door to the locker room

Here's a shot from behind the goal. We hung out there for about 20 minutes.

the year was...

Alright, this post is going to be a little strange/funny...

So this weekend Carolyn and I are organizing everything in the Kitchen, and we decide to throw away some of our canned food that is expired. I'm thinking that there are probably a couple things in there that were 2 or 3 years old.

So I find about 8-9 cans that are expired... then I find a can that looks really old... and I see a picture of Reggie White on the cover (it's a Campbell's soup can). So I'm thinking this has got to be at least 5 years old. I look for the expire date and here's what I find...

This can has been with me for a long time! Maybe I'll hold onto and it will be a collectors item?
