Texas Adventure 2009 - Dallas, San Antonio
NHL and NBA Games
Start of my Adventure to Texas, USA.
Get up early this morning around 5am to get a good breakfast and get ready for my early morning flight to get to Dallas, Texas.
Have good bowl of oatmeal and orange juice this morning. I get my ride and take my bags with me to the Thunder Bay International Airport.
First things first is to check in with Delta, Mesaba for my first leg of my journey. I have to fly from Thunder Bay to Minneapolis, MN to get a connection there to get to Dallas.
I get into the long line to go through security, during this time I fill out my USA Immigration form in black ink.
Once in security check of departure lounge, I meet up with Jennifer. I noticed she has filled out her form abit wrong as she wrote it in Red ink and didnâ��t fill out the address section. But she is smart girl, she knows what she is doing. Anyways, finally boarding the plane of Mesaba/Delta itâ��s a full plane and I am at the very far back of the plane. We take off and head off for the short flight to Minneapolis. During this time I have a short sleep to pass the time, the whole journey.
We land in Minneapolis at good time, then we board the buses to get to the terminal for immigration check.
In the secure portion of the terminal, I get a text message from Jennifer that she is tied up with security and will be a while. We were supposed to meet for lunch in the terminal.
After waiting a full hour, she finally gets into the departure area. She tells me that agents didnâ��t like the red ink and she was hauled into interrogation room.
Anyways we go for some pizza and juice in the food court to pass some time.
Afterwards It was time for me to board my flight to get to Dallas, Texas. Jen heads off to her flight and its time to get to Dallas. The plane to Dallas is full and I get my usual window seat. I spend the flight sleeping to Dallas to pass the time. Finally arriving into Dallas, Looks like a nice area, very sunny today and looks warm out. I can not wait for this excitement. I get off the plane and get my bags.
I then go proceed to get the shuttle bus to get to the Hertz Rental Counter. I am a little excited as it will be my first time driving in Texas. I get the keys to the car I am assigned to and end up with a Chevy HHR.
So after a short rest in the room, I make my plans for the evening. I have hockey game to see tonight. I have to decide to take a taxi or drive to downtown. I figure to be adventurous and drive to downtown. It is a good drive to downtown in the afternoon rush hour. I find the American Airline Center where tonightâ��s game is going to be at.
It is a good exciting game. However It would be boring to say about the entire game. This is the first time I see a hockey team with Cheerleaders. The Stars Cheerleaders are very nice looking and amazing at what they do. Also included are the Stars Ice Girls who are also quite amazing to see, great eye candy.
The results of the game were Boston 3 and Dallas 0. But all well it was nice to see NHL game.
I go out and check out the Tailgate parties going on in the Historical centre on the city tonight.
Afterwards I go back to the parking lot, get my car and then make my way back to my hotel. It is an easy drive back up the Freeway to the Comfort Inn.
It has been a long day, as I was up early today for my flights. So I am off to bed now.
Stay tuned for day 2 of my Dallas, Texas Adventure.
