Okay, so our Minnesota Wild made their way across the pond to Stockholm for the 2023 NHL Global Series which, in my opinion, is the coolest thing ever. The catch, however, is that the games are extremely early. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “that’s way too early to start drinking for hockey!” Well shut up, it’s not.
First game of the weekend is against the Ottawa Senators at 10AM CST. In other words, battle of the two crappy teams. My thoughts on how to best prepare:
Second game of the weekend is against the Toronto Maple Leafs at (gulp) 8AM CST. Ryan Reaves will hopefully be on the ice if they don’t scratch him so it’s going to be a fun one. Love that man.
Anyway, my thoughts on how to best prepare: (you’ll probably be hungover from Saturday festivities with college football, UFC and the Wild game)
- Bloody Mary (spicy) with whatever toppings AND a chaser of the beer of your choice
- Wash it down with a good old fashioned Irish Coffee (for those that don’t know what that is, it’s whipped cream with your choice of whiskey, I prefer Jameson, mixed with coffee. Cures everything.)
It’s Going to be a Fun Weekend
With how the Wild have been playing we need all the extra fuel to power through the weekend. Do I think it’s going to be a trip worth celebrating for the team? Ya know, I actually do. But, with this team, who the hell knows.
