"Skates" The Wolves's mascot. #94 probably due that that being when I graduated high school ... I doubt it has anything to do with the fact that the Wolves were founded in 1994
Sport - hockey
Home team - Wolves
Visiting team - Rivermen
Venue - Allstate Arena
Final - Wolves 4 - Rivermen 2

The Wolves were founded in 1994, and I've always heard that they put on a great show, and the team is usually quite good too having won the championship four times in that period of time. But as it turns out this was my first time at a Wolves game. They play at the Allstate Arena (which I'll always think of as the Rosemont Horizon) where I've been a number of times to see concerts (Nine Inch Nails in 1995 and Beck in 1998 being the most notable for me).

I went with a group of about ten people, the majority of them being co-workers. Anyway, we got to see Chris Chelios (the guy's 48 years old & still playing!) and the Wolves won the game. Because the weather was so bad, very few people showed up for the game, all who showed up can get a ticket to another home game in February for free!
