Real Men Play Hockey

I had to use that title on my Pinterest page too. You need to check it out. You won’t regret it. Hand to heart. Anyway, last weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing the Nashville Predators play against the LA Kings. Sadly, my team lost but it was so much fun. My daughters along with my best bud, Meda White, went with me.  We enjoyed a little sightseeing. The sun came out just for us. It’s our sunny personalities. HA!

By the time we left Nashville, the girls were fans. (Especially watching hockey players exercise. LOL!)

So many cute bars and shops to check out!

IMG_1022

Crowded, but not horribly so. Music spilled out onto the streets everywhere.

IMG_1024

The whole crowd. (Yes, I’m terrible at selfies. I’ve been behind the camera for many years for a reason.)

My eldest.

I just thought it was cool. Yes. I’m a newbie.

Exercise that!

Exercise that!

Betty, me and Victoria – I look like I’m up to no good. Well, yeah.

If my feet wasn’t hurting, I would’ve walked across the street and gotten a better picture. Love horses. And cops.

Beautiful at night, heh?

Loved the little Minion show/ad in Times Square.

IMG_0760

There were a few naked women hanging around (pun intended). The men would pay to get their picture taken with them. One way to make a living.

IMG_0761

The lights fascinated me.

IMG_0762

And the crowds drove me nuts.

IMG_0763

See the M&M character? He was HUGE!

Don’t know what the ad was, but it was so romantic, I had to take a picture.

IMG_0766

Yes. More of the same, sorta.

IMG_0768

Look close and you can see more naked girls. They had barely there bottoms and no tops. They have red, white and blue feathers on their heads. Just painted breasts.

IMG_0769

My chocolate RITA (Everyone got one at the award ceremony. It tasted like Easter Bunny.)

IMG_0774

I couldn’t resist and got Meda to take this picture while in our cab. HELLO KITTY! GIANT HELLO KITTY that is.
