Outside of classes it is always nice to relax and step away from school. One way that I enjoy spending my time away from school is by attending sporting events. Every fall, I look forward to all of the football games scheduled, and I often attend as many high school, Ohio State, and Ohio University football games as I can. I love being in the atmosphere and watching the athletes make electric plays on the field.

With fall rolling on into winter, I decided to take the opportunity to try watching a new sport. This past weekend, I was lucky to be able to attend my first Columbus Blue Jackets game. It was a beautiful day outside, and I had a great time exploring downtown Columbus and the arena district before the game.

After dinner, I headed into Nationwide Arena for the start of the game. With nearly all of the seats full, the puck dropped to start the game. The game was full of hard hits on the glass in front of me, and there were even a couple of fights between the players. The Blue Jackets played hard, but ended up falling short at the end of the game. While the Jackets may not have won the game, I can’t wait to go back to my next CBJ game.
