Cyclones hockey game #13: playoff edition!

We listened to the end of the Cyclones Eastern Conference semi-final game against the
Fort Wayne Komets last night online. The 'Clones ended up losing the game 2-1 when the
Komets scored at the 19:52 mark in the third period. Yeah. They lost the game with EIGHT
seconds left. The kicker was the Reds were playing the Milwaukee Brewers and apparently
EVERYONE went to the Reds game because there were only 1300 people at Friday night's
playoff hockey game. Friday's Reds game at GABP was in front of 32,953 people...

Tonight, we decided to do our part to support our hometown hockey franchise and help
them get a couple more butts in the seats at US Bank Arena...

Oh, and the Cyclones game and the Reds game ended right around the same time...

Traffic was just ridiculous downtown. Thank goodness we could just walk home! :)
