Just wanted to know if anyone went.

I managed to get tickets last minute, thought it would be a fun experience.

If you didn't go, did you watch it? What did you think?

Well I was wearing my Devils jacket, so I got some ©rap for that.

Some a$$hole Flyers fans were sitting behind me, kind of annoying listening to them talk the entire game.

Awesome! Thanks for posting those.
Looks like you had pretty decent seats. Still... these pics kinda support my intuition that it'd be difficult to actually see the game.

It's funny...as cool as that event looks, everyone seems so damned far away...but if the Devils were ever given a chance to participare in a WC (fat chance), I'd want to go...but I think once would do it for me.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Nice pics! I watched the game on TV, made some appetizers for the kids and made an afternoon out of it. One of my daughters asked me why hockey wasn't more popular after watching the game LOL.

But I was mostly hoping that the Flyers would lose rather than the Rags would win. I thought the penalty shot at the end was a good call too; defenseman aren't allowed to fall down in the crease and grab the puck in their hands or it's a penalty shot. Not sure if Torts saw the replay on that one before he made his comments, but that's exactly what McDonagh did. The call right before that on Callahan was just a classic ridiculously bad call though. I wouldn't mind going to one of these games in the future, maybe when they eventually do one at Yankee Stadium.

No problem guys, I have some more that I can post later but I'm on my iPad right now.

The view was actually a lot better than it looks like in the picture, couldn't really see the players faces or anything, had to look at the jumbotron to see some plays. But you could see most of the action from the seats.

I payed $550 for 2 tickets.

Unless there is another WC in the NJ/NY area, this is probably a one time thing for me as well. Nothing more they could do to make me want to go again, it's a good experience, but not something to get overworked about not going to.

Also if anyone didn't know, there was a seat cushion giveaway. There was a WC seat cushion on all of the seats with the WC logo on it, pretty cool. There was a Bridgestone coupon and a pack of hockey cards in there.

So apparently a bunch of Flyers fans ganged up on a Rangers fan outside Geno's Steaks and beat the living hell out of him. Turns out he's a cop and veteran of the war in Iraq. It's all over teh yootoobs.

Keep it classy, Philly.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Jesus...that is downright awful.

I mean, why would anybody eat at Geno's when Pat's is so much better?

Seriously the best cheesteak ever was at Jefferson Hospital's Cafeteria when my Grandfather was in the hospital. I am not joking.
Otherwise I much prefer Jim's. Pat's I could do without their soup-nazi ordering process. Plus I find the "Speak English" thing ironic when they want you to order in their own made up language.

I was at the Penn State game on that ice last night. Going into it, I was totally expecting not to be able to see a thing, but that wasn't the case at all.

I thought Geno's was the place that got in trouble for the "speak english" thing (?). But, yes, Pat's wants you to order correctly with their whiz and their wits and what-nots.

I'm glad to hear this. I'm going to the Hershey-Adirondack game tomorrow at Citizens Bank Park, and I was curious about how much I'd actually be able to see from our seats.

It could be both, it stems from the fact that a significat spanish speaking population has moved into the "italian market" area. I have been in the area with some frequency as I have family several blocks away, but honesly I also have not been at either establishment in a couple years.

Basically only the middle tier (club level I guess) was open for this. The view was fine, even if you were closer to home plate. I defintely think though that if you were way downstairs you could have a harder time seeing. There did have tv-sceens stratigically placed on the field to make up for this though.
