Its hard to imagine a PG Winter ( I know I said the W word) without the Spruce Kings! They have exceptionally awesome hockey action, with great prices, great fans and lots of loyal volunteers and staff. So the Chance to come to their Home Opener against the American team the Wenatchee Wild , was too good to refuse! Every time I go to one of these games, i’m always thrilled with energy in the coliseum. It all started with the Save On Foods Tailgate Party/ BBQ where all the fans gathered and started talking about the players, games, and all things hockey! This home opener will always have a place in my heart because not only did we have a super fun halftime game, I was given the honor of dropping the puck. Which is a pretty big deal here in Prince George! Once on the Ice I was a little bit nervous, but how hard can it be to drop a puck? Me being me I had to through in a joke chosing to ask the captains of both teams “if I should drop it like its hot?” But back to our Lip sync battle which I know all of you are dying to hear about! We got our two contestants for our BareNaked Ladies tickets, who came up to us to volunteer for those much wanted tickets! Both Laura and Alfredo would get two BareNaked Ladies songs that they would lip sync to and the crowd would decide the winner! After the fantastic way they both performed Prize Guy Joel did the tiebreaker and Laura ended up in first place nabbing herself the tickets! Alfredo didn’t go home empty handed though he got an awesome prize pack from our sponsors! Then it was back to the hockey action, where unfortunately the Spruce Kings couldn’t save the momentum they had earlier and they lost .
