Ultimate Sports Baby attends First NHL Game

9 December 2010 No Comment

Hospitality Jim invited me to last night’s Blackhawks game. With the wife out of town and now babysitters available, the Ultimate Sports Baby had to attend his first NHL game at the United Center. I was slightly concerned since I knew I would have to put Dylan into the baby bjorn and sit in my seat with him for the entire game. Remember, I avoided this hassle when I chose to attend the DePaul Men’s Basketball game rather than the Blackhawks game on November 14.

Getting to the United Center with an infant is fairly easy as long as you are already packed up for the game. I parked for free in my usual spot on Washington Blvd. and Paulina St. and walked to the arena with Dylan is his stroller. Once at the United Center, I checked the stroller with guest services and transferred the Ultimate Sports Baby to the baby bjorn baby carrier. Then I walked to my section and sat with him in the seats. Not the most comfortable but better than the alternative of staying at home.

Dylan was surprisingly great throughout the game even though he was up way past his bed time. He did not fuss and just looked around at all the people who were around him. This clearly was the perfect age to bring him to a game in the baby bjorn.

The Blackhawks tried to let their 4-1 lead slip away late in the 2nd period but held onto the lead during the 3rd period to win the game 5-3.
