Collaborate Tradition

Back in 2005, I attended the IOUG-A show in Toronto. James Thomson, a good friend from Canada, and I wanted to attend the hockey playoff game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Carolina Hurricanes. The tickets were extremely expensive so we set off to watch the game over dinner and a beer.

While walking to a sports bar between the 1st and 2nd period, we passed a ticket scalper still trying to unload the last two tickets he had. Long story short, we were in our seats before the puck dropped for about 10% of the pre-game price.
This is turning into a bit of a tradition now.

During my recent visit to Collaborate in Denver, my friends at PIOCON invited some of the Hotsos team to join them at the Pepsi Center to watch Colorado play Minnesota. It was a great game with the home team winning somewhat easily.

Many thanks to Matt Vranicar and Eric Camplin for the invite and a great time - we owe you one!
