Gettin' Noisy In Boise

Just got back from watching the Idaho Steelheads win the National Conference title series for the ECHL, essentially hockey's AA minor league. (My wife asked for tickets for the whole family to the game for her Mother's Day present -- I'm like the luckiest guy in the world.) They closed out the series against the Alaska Aces tonight by winning 3-2 in the fifth game of a planned 7 game series, and will face the winner of the Dayton-Florida series for the Kelly Cup.

The game was really good. Tied 2-2 after the 2nd period, Idaho scored a short-handed goal about 5 minutes into the 3rd, and then when the Steelheads' goalie stopped a penalty shot (unfairly awarded to Alaska by the blind refs) with just over 5 minutes left, the crowd knew the Steelheads would pull it out. There was some excitement during the last couple of minutes, but in the end Idaho had the win.

All in all, an excellent way to spend a Tuesday night in downtown Boise.

Hey Bubblehead,

My family and I were privileged to attend the Steelhead's Kelly Cup championship game in 2004, just weeks after we moved to Boise.

The celebration afterward was probably the biggest thing to hit Boise until last New Year's Day!
