The first time I saw a hockey fight I closed my eyes and then looked in shock at the people standing up encouraging a fight. I paid $14 to see a game of really heavy and muscular men stand on really thin ice and glide across said ice with a stick. I did NOT pay to see a boxing match on skates, although I have to admit that the second time I saw a fight I didn’t quittteeeee look away for as long.
Anyway, back to the point of what on earth do you wear to a hockey game? You cannot look like you are trying to hard, but you cannot simply ignore you instincts to still want to look decent. I repeat, do not wear anything more dressy than good jeans. You dress as simply as you can until it’s time for accessorizing. Have a bare-bones outfit and then accessorize smartly. A necklace and bright lipstick are the perfect touch to make you stand out from the crowd, but to not let you stand out TOO much from the crowd. Oh, and if you wear red lipstick, prepare for the jokes about bloody lips. Apparently it’s just par for the course at games. I’ve warned you.
Read my words: I. Never. In. A. Million. Years. Thought. I. Would. Go. To. A. Hockey. Game. Much. Less.
Like. LOVE. Going. To. Hockey. Games. Did you read that? Good, now we’re on the same page. Hockey is now a thing that I love. Like, semi-pro hockey games are kind of my weekend jam. I can never keep track of the puck, I don’t understand what an “icing” is. I don’t understand why men have to punch each other to fight it out; I don’t understand why people need to encourage the punching either.
