Where In The World Is Scott

833-Hockey – Anchorage, AK

Went to the Alaska Aces hockey game the other night. I’m not a big sport watcher and I really don’t care about any team, but I have a lot of fun watching a game I know nothing about especially when you are right down on the glass next to the ice. Brought my camera and had some fun. That night they were playing the Bakersfield Condors. Yes Bakersfield, California. It doesn’t get any better than that. I guess that’s what you get when you are a AA farm team for the St. Louis Blues.

833-Hockey6Those are fish heads out there on the ice. It’s a tradition in Alaska that then the Aces score their first goal of the night people toss frozen fish heads from the stands on the ice. Those are large salmon heads. Can you imagine smuggling under your jacket a frozen fish head into a warm arena and waiting for your team to score. I wonder what they do if there is a shut-out.

833-Hockey24Let the fights begin. It goes like this. Two guys grab one guy and pull his shirt over his head and then try to beat the crap out of him. It all evens out later in the game.

833-Hockey8This is the Aces regular team mascot cheerleader. He leads cheers and does a regular routine with a pony on a stick that gets the crowd going as he runs up and down in front of the stands as the announcer cheers him on.

833-Hockey7All kinds at the game. Dude with a strobe light “goal indicator” on his head.
