Coming Soon: The NHL Weekend Roadie

As our longtime followers know, we OGA boys like us some hockey road trips. In our two-plus years of existence, we’ve been to (and blogged/Tweeted from) these NHL arenas:

• Madison Square Garden
• Nassau Coliseum
• Verizon Center
• Mellon Arena
• Air Canada Centre
• Philips Arena
• Scottrade Center
• Nationwide Arena
• American Airlines Center

Heading into our third year of existence, we’ve decided to share the wealth (such as it is) with our readers. Starting in August, The NHL Weekend Roadie will be a regular feature. For each weekend during the season, we’ll put together a road trip we’d take if our wives and wallets would let us. We’re going to tell you which games to catch, where to eat, where to sleep, and maybe even offer some suggestions as to what to do when you’re not eating, sleeping, traveling between arenas, or watching hockey. The only decisions you’ll have to make will be which flight to book and how to justify the trip to your significant other…and hell, we might even have some suggestions for that, too (we’re very good at rationalizing).

So tune in next week for the first installment of The NHL Weekend Roadie, and get ready to hit the road. Remember: that light at the end of the tunnel isn’t a freight train; it’s the 2010-2011 NHL season. Plan accordingly.

Take me back to On Goal Analysis.
