I'm Gonna PLOTZ!

Way back around Christmas time, Herm 2 Hockeytown began. So, what is H2H? It has to do with hockey--DUH!--and it is pretty cool. A blogger from Brazil is a HUGE Red Wings fan. He posts on a hockey blog that I read. He was lamenting the fact that, not only has he never been to a live hockey game, but he has never met another Wing fan in person. So, someone decided it would a great idea to get this guy to Detroit to see a game in person. And that is where H2H started. This past weekend was THE weekend full of events and from everything I could read, fun was had by all. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it to the fun. It is just too difficult for us to make long-range plans at this time of year--we NEVER know what the weather will be like and Detroit IS a bit of a drive for us: eight hours or more, as a matter of fact. So, I had to live vicariously through my 'fake' hockey friends and everything they posted.

I donated some money to the cause. Every dollar above and beyond the amount needed for 'Herm's' plane ticket and ticket for the game, was donated to the Children's Hospital of Michigan--a Red Wing charity. The amount donated was over $5000. For every $5 donation, you got a chance in the drawing for one of the prizes that were donated. Today, I was notified that I won an autographed puck! Johan Franzen (the Mule)--and one of the stars of the Wings--signed it. The only thing that could have made me MORE excited is if I would have gotten something that my Baby Boy signed. Life is good.

I never, never, NEVER win anything! At the most, I thought I might win one of the (for me anyway) lame-o prizes, but I certainly was happy with this one! I have a happy. :D
