The drive to L.A.
Parking, getting out of the car and putting on the jersey.
Walking among the faithful, with smiles and nods of hello.
Reaching L.A. Live and meeting friends at the Yardhouse for a pregame beer or two.
45 minutes to puck drop. “Time to head in, boys…”
Taking your ticket out while standing in line. Oh, how the anticipation builds.
Metal detector, ticket scan, inside…
Through the crowds, you wonder if they feel as you do…
The first steps past the black curtain.
Let’s raise the banner.
We have a Stanley Cup Championship to defend.
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends
we’re so glad you could attend
come inside, come inside!
